I was unable to post. This is the post: I am a Nigerian with a month tourist visa to dubai, I want to stay back in dubai, how can I convert this to a work visa. I am a university degree holder in Nigeria with a few years of safety job role in oil and gas.I dont have an international ly accepted Health,safety certificate to work in dubai but I plan writing NEBOSH IGC exam in dubai,can I get my hands readily on other kinds of job in dubai before I write this exam? Again, what precisely can I do about my visa elongation, what range in price, thanks

A tourist visa cannot be converted into a work visa.

Mike already answered your question... If you hold a Nigerian passport this is not possible...

If I hold a Nigerian passport is not possible.Why? Because I have seen other nationals do it,say for instance kenyans and south Africans. If you say it isn't possible,then you have to explain the logic and rationale behind it.

It isn't about your passport. It is about the type of visa you hold. Tourist visas cannot be converted to work permits and the individual must exit the country (to wherever - Kish Island, Oman, home country, etc.) and, then, re-enter after the work permit has been granted.

If you hold a Visit Visa, then you can convert this. Your sponsor can enable this to happen for a small fee.

Your visa has the type on it. Just look.

Can I come to Dubai on visit visa and give medical test for obtaining residence visa or I must have an employment visa????

In fact I got unfit medical report (old TB) before and went home to come back after treatment. Now I got treatment and ready to come UAE. I checked from immigration, they say that you can come for medical again but if we find any scar in your chest we shall deport you. My sponsor told me to come on visit visa to Dubai, give medical test and if the reports are clear, we can consider you... Can I come and try my luck??
