Default Tax Residence Certificate - DNRD Question

I need a Tax Residency Certificate - and the Ministry of Finance has a process to grant them at the below url.

https://www.mof.gov.ae/en/mservices/...ceCardTax.aspx

However, one of the required documents is "A report from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs specifying the number of days the resident has stayed in the UAE."

I sent my representative, but DNRD has no clue how to generate this report. They've asked him to go to the FreeZone (I'm a FZC employee) who has only my "entry date" and no data beyond that.

Has anyone done this? Can you point me in the right direction?

- Who do I need to talk to
- What document or report should I be asking for?

Thanks a ton!

So finally figured the process by spending most of my Sunday. Posting it here incase someone else needs it for later.

Documents needed:
* You need to take the printout of the MOF webpage with you, it was super helpful in explaining what I needed.
* Passport Original (containing Resident Visa)
* Emirates ID Original
* You need an arabic request letter for an "in-out records" that any typing center outside the DNRD will type (Cost me 40AED)
* Copies to be attached with the request letter:
** Passport
** Visa
** Emirates ID

Go to Section 15 in the DNRD at Al Jafilya (spelling?) get a token, await your turn.

Once the person sees you, present arabic letter and original passport. He will give you payment request stamp of AED120, which must be paid at the bank counter in the same room.

On presenting the receipt from the Bank counter the appropriate printout will be provided.

So the above steps are required to obtain this document only:
"A report from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs specifying the number of days the resident has stayed in the UAE."

Is it correct? Then once you have it, can you submit the request online by uploading all documents and paying AED 2000?

Just curious. What do you need a Tax residency certificate for? Does some procedure in India require this?

For info, in AD things are simpler: Go to the immigration office which is inside the skypark plaza (opposite terminal 3 - AD airport) with valid passport/visa and ask for a "travel report". By default, they give you report from the first entrance to UAE, which is needed for the tax domicile certificate. You can also get a report for a particular duration, but you cannot use it to get the tax domicile certificate (application will be returned back with a note: "provide full immigration report").
Travel report costs AED105.06 payable on the spot, by card only.

Next steps:
Upon gathering all paperwork, apply online for tax domicile certificate.
Application costs AED105.06.
If the application is approved, you pay AED2,043.060 for the certificate. It is sent to your address through Empost (consider you will have it within one month from the application).
Then you need to take it to MOFA for attestation, then to your embassy for another attestation, then you can use it in your country (add a step if you need translation to a language other than english).
Good luck

1. It includes all history (entry-exit-when-where-etc) in table format. Number of days in UAE per year is not included in a summary, but you can calculate it based on this data. I used excel but I do not travel a lot so it was easy. The report is in Arabic so I googled it to find the "entry" and "exit" in Arabic...
2. You must complete 183 in the UAE to qualify for the Tax Residency certificate. The MOF website says 180 days, but for my wife's application they responded: "Regarding your reference number XXX for Issuing Tax Domicile Certificates. Kindly be informed that your application status is Application back to initiator with note : you must complete at least 183 days in the UAE". They had done a mistake when calculating the days present, but I believe the 183 days is correct, in line with international practice (habitual abode). If you do not cover the 183 days, I believe your application will be rejected. You can try it. Worst case scenario you will waist AED105.06 for the travel report and AED105.06 for the online application.

Note 1: For the travel report you have to go before 14:30 and better go well before that. Do not forget credit or debit card.
Note 2: Even if your travel report does not prove that you spend 183 days in the UAE, it may be useful in prooving that you do not spend 183 days in your home country.

Travel report:
Do you know, how they calculate the days, when you are travelling from / to Dubai ?
Arriving and immigration in Dubai at 23:30 -> 1 day in Dubai ?
Flying out at 9:30 -> 1 day in Dubai ?
