My emirates id was issued and ready for pick up last sunday does it mean that my residency visa is also already issued?because it was written in the registration form for EID that make sure the residency visa is issued in 14 days from the day i complete the biometrics or else the application will be deactivate or cancelled,I completed my biometrics for more than 2 weeks ago,.hope you can help me with my question,thank you in advance..

Usually the emirates id is issued after the visa process being finished, ie: stamped into the passport. But as chocoholic suggests, do contact your employer to make sure.

I am not 100% sure, but to apply for your Residency Visa you need to supply a copy of your Emirates ID application.

Our company PRO took my Passport, Emirates ID application, Medical Insurance card copy and applied for my Residency Visa. Received it in 2 days.

You have to apply for your Residency Visa within 10 days after Emirates ID application

contact employee services directly or your HR rep is your best bet.... my visa took a little longer as well for some reason... got my Emi ID after though.

then you will not get residency, and your employer will cancel your employment contract, and you'll be going home.

did you fail?
