Default Proof of UAE Residency

I'm a UAE resident and I'm getting married in my home country (Switzerland) in a few months. One of the administrative requirements is to have an official proof of residency (domicile) document. Where would I need to go in the UAE to obtain such a document?

Thanks

Do you know if there's another, lighter form of domicile certificate available, as the one you referred me to is specifically for benefiting from double taxtion avoidance. My concern is not with taxes, I merely need a document confirming that I'm a UAE resident.

Thanks again.

Would not your Residency in the passport suffice?

It's Switzerland.....the Swiss can be very.....ahem.....uptight.....about these things. If there's an official document then they want the official document, not a scan of a passport page.

Perhaps contact the Swiss embassy/consulate and find out what's feasible?

Interesting that you're mentioning that, LesFroggitts.
I will give it a try and report back. My only concern is that the Swiss require an "attestation de domicile" and domicile is of course slightly different from residency. I think what comes closest in English would be "proof of address".

Hi,
The normal "proof of resiedence" in Dubai is a copy of your Ejari and for Abu Dhabi it is the Tawtheek - both proof that you are the registered renter of a property.
This along with a copy of your residents ID card and visa stamp in passport should be enough to prove you are a resident of the UAE!
Cheers
Steve

That's good to know and makes sense indeed. Thanks Stevesolar.

I take it that Ejari is only available for 12-month rental contracts (and not for short-term rentals)?
