yes,both are possible. I did same. Just remember to return to UAE within 6 months
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! came across your posts while searching for answers to my own queries. hope you can help me. we are from india and are based in dubai for a while now. my husbands company in dubai is transfering him to saudi and i want to know if its possible for him to get employment visa for himself and residence visa for myself and my daughter form dubai itself without going back to our home country?
we dont eant to packup and go to india first and then wait there for visa and then pack up and move from india again to saudi...it would be much stressful and the visa procedures from india are very tedious. hope you can help get me some answers.

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

Hi,

Could you please confirm if having UAE residency valid, I can come to India and get Saudi visa stamped. If that is possible, will I be allowed to go back to UAE and complete the process of exit without any problem.

regards,
Ejaz

One of my friends got Saudi visa stamped from Islamabad without cancelling his UAE visa.

For me my agent asked first I need to cancel UAE visa and then he will take the visa papers and relevant docs from me for Saudi visa stamping.

I think it depends on agent. Saudi Embassy has no issue.
