A very good question. I am an software developer from India who gets most of the revenues from USA/Europe. Almost every free zone asks you to first setup a company with cost of license upwards of 20000 AED/annum. Setting up a company was a pain from India with lot of regulations and I really did not need a company. Twofour54 in Abu Dhabi offered me a freelancer visa for only 2500 AED/annum as license cost with free hot desk. It was much cheaper and with minimal overhead, except this one time visa process which is time consuming.

Another unknown item just popped out of the black box of the visa process. My passport is with free zone and I was supposed to check out of my hotel tomorrow to move to a different one, but hey just realised I can not check in a hotel without original passport. I had no option to cancel that hotel in Sharjah and extend the current one in AD for 4 more nights ! I am sure process is much easier in other countries.

Very frustrated, it is now 4 working days and there is no clue about my health card. My question is can I exit the country if I need to without cancelling my entry permit ? There is a weekend in between, if out of frustration I book a plane ticket, will the immigration stop me or it will allow me to travel but cancel my visa on the spot ?

Hi, Please anyone guide about my residence visa. I already have the red visa paper. my medical and emirates I'd procedure already done, So now I want to travel back to my country for only 2 days. I have something urgent to do.
So should I wait for my visa stamping or It's possible I can travel with the same situation.

If you leave now, before you get your passport back without your residence visa in it, you'll have to start all over again.
