Default JAFZA (Jebel Ali) Visa processing times

Hi All,

I know similar questions have been asked on Dubai visa countless times by now....

However I would like to hear from expats who work in the JAFZA with the first hand experience of obtaining visa and their processing times.

I have been waiting only just over a week but what some idea so I can plan things!

thanks in advance

Personally mine took a couple of weeks. Others in my company has only taken a few days. But one of my friends from Pakistan took three months.

I think it will depend on your PRO and their relationship with JAFZA.

Similar processing time for new hires in our company in June/July

Well it's the 4th week since I submitted my info for the VISA and still haven't heard anything yet.

Is this normal?

I think that's a bit long. But then Ramadan just started and that reaaaaaaaaaaaaally slooooooooooows things down with them.

Follow up with your PRO, he should check what's the status of your application.
