I thought this was a visa run thread! Not employment visa process one.

I have some queries regarding visa stamping and signing of a labour contract.

I have just recently joined a company on 18-feb-2013 but they have not made any attempts to get my visa stamped until just 2 days back. I was told to keep the passport with me since my first day of joining and was then asked to deliver it to them on 9-apr-2013, which is 2 days back.

I have the following questions:

1. I would like to know if I would be penalized if there is any delay in getting the visa stamping done, even though it was the company who is at fault? I had repeatedly contacted my company about the visa stamping but they did not pay any attention until just recently.

2. When my new contract will be signed, will the start date be from the day I arrived in UAE or will it be from the date the visa was stamped?

I would really appreciate your help on this. thanks

Hi Eamon,

Assuming you are driving to the Oman border, If you are a British passport holder it is AED 50 at the border for your visa stamp which is valid for 40 days.

Even though the stamp will say 30 days you actually get 40 days as British passport holders are given a 10 day grace period.

You will obviously need your passport and there is a form available at the counter for completion.

Good luck!

Hi Eamon,

Yes if you are driving to the border it costs AED 50, I know this because my friend did it last week.
