Default 3 Months Bank Statement to renew residence visa

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all doing well!

I am currently in the process of renewing my residence visa (our company is registered in JAFZA, Dubai) and the public relation officer at work is asking me to provide a 3 months bank statement as part of the required documents. Is this really a requirement? I hear that this is required only in case the person is sponsoring a family but in my case I am single.

To me such information is VERY private and I am not comfortable providing it.
Thank you in advance for your feedback
Regards,

Hi,
This is not a normal requirement for Dubai visa renewals.
As stated - your bank statements are private!
Cheers
Steve

i renewed last year at Jafza, and it's completely optional..... i asked why this was required, and our PRO stated that Jafza would update my salary records by viewing the salary transfer into my bank.

I said i didn't care if they didn't update, refused to give them, and that was the end of it.

In the words of Grange Hill - Just say no!

Alternatively, payslips should do the job.

I have a lot of my people's visa's through JAFZA (including my own), our PRO has never asked for a bank statement from any of us. Our salaries are transferred through JAFZA, so they know exactly how much we are getting paid into our accounts.

Never heard of someone submitting their bank statement for a UAE residence visa. Usually it's salary certificate if you're a government employee or labor contract if you're private sector/freezone.

Default Required only in JAFZA if your salary has increased

Hi - I checked with the JAFZA call centre and they confirmed that 3 months bank statements are required if you need to record the revised salary compared to the last renewal.
So it is optional, and you can choose to renew your visa without changing the salary on the JAFZA contract.
