As I was told that the government imposed some additional requirement on expat recruitment procedure then this cause SC/visa processing time taking longer than before. This process is carried out by the employers.

Well the whole process started in november!

They asked for attested docs, sent them, then they asked for more (this fits in with additional requirements)
Since we sent all the docs it has been just over 5 weeks.

I submitted all the forms to my company today and the HR coordinator told me she forwarded it to the Government Relations Manager. She said it takes at least 10 days to process everything and release a visa... I hope it won't take months, I can't wait to move to Abu Dhabi. Wish me luck

Ok, good luck.

Just a word of warning....

DONT EXPECT IT IN 10 DAYS....IT WILL NOT HAPPEN.

I put it in caps just to make it clear and set your expectations early.

Unfortunatly it appears most HR departments are not sure what to expect!...or they just lie to avoid you going elsewhere.

Good luck - It will come - just takes time.

Thanks!
I am aware of how this wont happen in 10 days, I hope it will be a month top. I applied for a hotel job, so it shouldn't be so tough. I have had my fair share of problems with visas and embassies, and I know that things are far from being simple.
Good luck to you yoo! Thanks again!
