Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I am on Employment visa and entered Dubai 20 days back. I have not yet completed my medical or emirates id process. Is it possible to exit UAE without visa stamping for emergency?

A: No. You should stamp your visa on passport or cancel visa directly without medical and ID. Then only you can exit

Q: Do I need to cancel Emirates ID at the time of my visa cancelation.
A: No. It will be cancelled automatically along with your visa cancellation.

Q: My contract is limited. My Labour Card expired this week but Visa will expire by end of next month. Will I get ban if I cancel now?
A: No. You need to complete only Labour Card period. Visa may be expiring after one month. That will not cause to get ban.

Q: How much time will be required to resolve the dispute if I approach the Ministry of Human Recourse and Emiratisation to cancel my visa, since my employer is refusing to cancel my visa after I gave in my resignation (which he refused to accept) and I will complete my 30 days notice period.

A: If there is no dispute regarding the dues between you and employer, and you are only approaching the Ministry of Human Recourse and Emiratisation to cancel your visa upon completion of the notice period, in this case, the cancellation procedures may be completed by the Ministry of Labour within almost two weeks.

Worker gets 30-day grace period after visa cancellation

Q: I came to Dubai on an employment visa in December 2012. However, the company I signed up for was not particularly to my liking and so I told them to cancel my visa. However, I have not been for a medical examination in this time, and the visa too was never stamped on my passport. My questions are: 1. How many days can I stay in the UAE after cancellation of my visa? 2. Shall I attract a one-year ban? 3. Is there any chance to come back on an employment visa after exiting the country in case the Ministry of Human Recourse and Emiratisation places a ban on me? Note that I had not started working at the company.

A: The questioner may stay in the country for 30 days after cancellation of his visa. A one-year ban might be imposed if the sponsor has made such a request on the grounds that the questioner has not started work with the company and thus caused a loss to the sponsor. Therefore, in the event of a ban being imposed on the questioner, the questioner may not enter the country on employment visa immediately, but only after finishing the ban (GN).
