Good Day,

I worked in the UAE for 3 years then transferred to Qatar and I went back to the UAE last month on a visit. I got a new job and signed the offer letter (in SHJ) last March 10 and gave the company my pictures for the visa.My question is, how long does it take for the employment visa to be processed? My new company has head offices both in SHJ and DXB but I submitted the requirements in SHJ.

On Mar 21 my visit visa will expire (I have consumed the 30 + 10 days) but when I called my company they told me that the emp. visa is still in process. The agency who has processed my visit visa from Doha is calling me asking when I can get the employment visa as they are afraid that I will overstay and their card will be blocked.

Does it take many days to process the employment visa?

Thank you.

Jules

Thanks...

I've gone to the HR today and ask when I can exit, PRO said that "visa is still on process". They knew that my visit visa is expired as they have a copy. Maybe they prefer to pay the penalty... I don't know. .But the agency who has issued my visit visa keep on pestering me to exit ASAP though I explained to them that the employment visa "is on process".
I would have preferred to exit, even to Kish or SL and wait there for the employment visa but then the company is not giving me the go signal to leave UAE...
