Default Dual Residence Visa - Saudi and UAE

I have residence visa in UAE. My family is with me under my sponsor.
Now I got a job in Saudia. I willl move within a week without cancelling my and my family's visa in UAE.

Questions

1) Is it possible to get Saudi Work Permit (Iqama) in Saudia without cancelling UAE residence visa?

2) After getting Saudi Work Permit (Iqama), I will back to UAE and cancel my family visa and mine, is possible?

I just got KSA Professorial Work Visa but UAE visa is still valid.

Can I drive with my car from UAE with out the export-number-plate
i.e; on Dubai number plate.
Because the car I have is older than 5 years and I think it can not be exported to KSA.
Would I be allowed to drive it in KSA after I get Iqama stamped .... I am planning to drive back to cancel my UAE visa later and sell it in UAE and buy newer one then drive back with Export Plate.

Can you please tell if it was possible for you (to get Saudi Work Permit (Iqama) in Saudia without cancelling UAE residence visa?) because I am in the same situation nowadays and pretty much worried. Looking for your guidance and kind response.

Hi mals1412! I think to have a saudi Visa stamped, you must have to go back to India and as far as keeping both Visas is concerned, uptill now the information i have gathered it seems that you can keep both without any difficulty. If your employer in Dubai lets you retain the Visa without cancelling it.

Further if you receive any information in future do share with me too so that we both can help each other.
Do share your contact details(if it is possible for you) to have a conversation and solution over this issue for guidance for both of us.

Dear Usman,
You can process your Visa for saudia, even without cancelling your Dubai as i did it. But you must not let your agent know about it or if he is reliable then you can tell.
Because he may ask you to cancel for his safety as they have contracts with companies. But as far as Embassies are concerned, there is no issue in having two resident Visas. You can enjoy both residencies.
Hope it is clear to you.

Regards
Waleed
