Default UAE entry permit rejected

Hello

I am new to this forum and this is my first thred.

Currently I live in Canada, I am Indian passport holder. Recently I got an Asst Prof Job in Ras al Khaima University. Everything went smoothly, they gave me a nice offer and I accepted. I have to be there in one month at the starting of spring semester, so after getting the offer letter I resigned from my current position because they told me that they would arrange visa in one week. They told me that my Visa will be arranged by the university, and I have to arrange a visit visa for my wife, later on after getting residence permit I can sponsor my wife.

I got my wife's visa through a travel agent.
But yesterday university HR informed me that my visa is rejected due to some unknown reasons, when I ask for the copy of rejection they are not willing to provide me saying that they can not disclose it?

My question is how and where can I appeal for my visa denial, since now I am jobless, who takes the responsibility? How can I convince UAE Immigration?

If someone knows what to do plz reply.

Thanks

Dear sir, I am extremely sorry for you. I went through the exact same experience
A few months ago in Qatar and unfortunately, there is simply nothing you can do.

They will nver tell you the reason but will say security clerance issues.

Please google uae security clearance and you will see many people on the ahu dhabi living forums who have been through the same. Please see if you can get back in the original job you left.

I hope you get something better and have patience during this difficult time.



Www

Dear Humus
Thanks for your reply.

This has been a disaster for me, I went to the original job but they denied as per the company rules.

I have nothing wrong with my passport, never faced visa rejection issues even for UK, Germany or Canada, I also visited UAE once on 96 hr transit visa.

Is there any department or office where I can appeal??

Thnx

I am terribly sorry for you. It was actually a nightmare. I think the University HR must has responsibility on that incident. Other professional company should recommend you never resign before obtain visa/ work entry permit. Because nobody can guarantee 100% the visa will be approved.
Don't give up and try to looking for other opportunities !

Best wishes to you.

Sad to say, it's true you should have been advised not to resign till your visa was approved. Having said that, if they have a PRO with wasta, it could be that taking the papers back to someone else may get the visa approved. If they will try this depends on how much they want you.

In view of the fact that the prospective employer did not guide you professionally, it could be that you have had a lucky escape.

You can't appeal to the authorities but it wouldn't go amiss to send a strongly worded email to the uni, stating your case, etc in view of the situation they have put you in.

A strongly worded email will have nil affect. This is becoming more and more common now and can result and very problematic outcomes. Much more likely if you are a Muslim applying for a mid to high level job like you I am sorry to say.

How do working girls in the hotels get in? How do gangsters and criminals manage to stay in the country when genuine people's lives are destroyed?

It has been 4 months since I received the exact same rejection and it has affected my entire family from parents to wife and kids. In every problem, there is an opportunity so you have to dig deep and something will come up.

Thanks all for reply

Today I got a letter from University, which for at least to me, does not seem to be a rejection, does anyone have any idea how a rejected visa look like, what they send to me is first page of visa application form with some thing written in arabic, without any stamp of Immigration, Moreover, when i search the ednrd site with the reference number which is written in that piece of paper, nothing comes up, How can I believe that this is original rejection? I really want to know if I can send any legal notice to university as I have been suffering a lot, I have lost my job here and already sold a lot of things. Please reply

Also the date on this paper is Jan 6, but not the first one. (It is also important to quote now that when I called the HR on Jan 3, she said that she got it and about to send it, so I was happy, but i got nothing by the end of the day, I called again several times but she never pick up the phone, finally another HR picked up and told me that your visa is rejected...........HOW COME???????).

Why the chairman and provost kept saying Security Reasons though there is nothing mention as a reason of rejection???

I do not think you can legally do anything about it. Was there a contract signed? If not, a legal notice or a case achieves no purpose.
