As Mandingo pointed out: minimum 5 forum posts before you receive privilege of sending (or receiving) direct messages. I just learned about the restriction on receiving as I tried to send you the snipped phone number...

{time for some morning creativity; there are a wealth of forum threads awaiting your thoughts, queries, or responses...}

You can also learn practical tips on the good Hatta Visa Run blog posting: http://www.maxlyth.com/?p=134 (see comments for driver recommendations/contact details)

All the best, NiteBaron

I sent all the documents to my employer in Abu Dhabi on Saturday, and I got a visa yesterday. That was like only 5 days, I am surprised.

A little variety in the system is perhaps to keep us on our toes...

The administration continued to evolve. Still room for greater transparency and enhanced workflow efficiencies.

All the best, NiteBaron

That is crazy fast... is this just a permit to enter the country? As abu dhabi has VERY different rules and you cant skip or working on two steps at the same time. Health coverage usually takes around a week in itself to be approved, once you go to the clinic in the uae to get the tests that are needed... that take a few days for themselves to come back.

''Coming to Abu Dhabi sometimes requires arranging for visas (entry permits) in advance, the type of which varies depending on the purpose of visit and duration of stay. ''

Yes, it says Entry Permit http://www.moveoneinc.com/wp-content...AE-EEP-MoL.jpg

it's like this one. You can't get a residence visa before actually entering the country.

''Once the employee has arrived in the UAE, the employer must approach GDRFA to complete the procedures for obtaining an employment residence visa for the employee. ''

Hi everyone,

My friend, a European lady with her daughter is driving to Hatta (from Dubai) to do their visa run this Friday the 12th morning. Let me know if anyone needs a lift.

She can't post this herself, she is not a member of the forum.

I dont think there is some universal timeline about how things happen during the process.
I simply signed a contract/offer letter, and filled out and sent bacl all the documents they sent me. With all of that my employer applied for my visa and a week after I got it. I guess I had it easy considering that some people wait more and get asked about some additional things to provide.
