Default Issue with Abu Dhabi PCC, please help !

I've been working in Abu Dhabi since 1 year, i applied for PCC ONLINE on abu dhabi police website and chose "translation to english".

I went to a station and paid the fees. Although in the online form i filled the information correctly, the officer at the station told me that they will base the certificate on the DETAILS of my visa.

As most of you living in UAE know that most of the times the profession printed on your visa does not match your ACTUAL profession. This is because of lazy PRO or sometimes ur profession not listed in immigration system.

My worry is if my profession on the PCC shows different than my actual profession (the same one i applied for DIAC) will this cause a problem for me ? Will DIAC notice that and object and accuse me of false info ? Please help anyone will similar experience? And is there a way to tell them to change the profession on my PCC in abu dhabi. Anyone else done this/went through this . Thanks !

I wouldnt worry about it DIAC must have seen this before as you can not be the only person applying for PCC from there with similar circumstances. If you are worried send a message along with PCC to explain. They have your skills assessment and references etc which state what you do so PCC can not over rule those.

I agree with Shel - as long as you have provided supporting evidence to show that you are performing the occupation that you claim to be, then there should not be any issues.

Abu Dhabi Police will not change your occupation on your PCC - my occupation was also different on my PCC and I also got my PCC in AUH and there were no issues whatsover. Stop worrying, everything will be ok. Immigration is more than familiar with the UAE's outrageous rules.

This difference between visa category and actual profession is very common....I'd suggest as _shel and Maz25.......need not worry just chill and wait for the upcoming grant letter....

best luck...

Dear Maz & Hassan thank you so much for your replies.

Can u please clarify one more thing, in ur case was the profession a big difference compared to ur actual job ? In my case its so pathetic my visa says "Sales" when i am a software developer lol its v pathetic visa system here u all know that. I tried before to change the title on my visa but immigration here refused rudely.

So since in my case the profession is totally different will this be a problem, do u think it will raise a redflag for DIAC or is DIAC well aware of how things work in the uae.

thanks again , waiting for ur responses i am in too much tension i dont want my journey to end because of such small thing.

This is a good question.

I have a similar issue where my profession on the VISA is vastly different from what i do. I have to get a PCC from there because i lived in the uae for sometime. I too am concerned that this causes a conflict, hopefully it doesn't fingers crossed.

Btw Dubai PCC also has the same issue, its not just abu dhabi

I hope DIAC are well aware of how the pathetic visa system in the UAE works where your occupation on the visa usually never matches your actual job.

Hi! I have the same problem... I am currently working as Planning Engineer but my Visa says Executive Secretary as well as my Abu Dhabi PCC

I just want to know if there were any negative feedback from DIAC regarding this or was this an issue with them.
