What sort of job is it? There are some visa categories that do not require attested certificates. Do you have a written offer on letterhead? Did you get a visa on arrival or was it issued by another company?

Hi
I think what bedou girl was referring to was the visa you got when you arrived in the UAE. was this granted to you as a visit visa at the airport?

If so, when your work visa is available, you will have to leave the UAE, either through the airport before the visit visa runs out and go somewhere for a weekend... oman or somewhere, and when you arrive back, the new work visa in your passport will get activated at immigration.

Alternatively you can drive to Oman as there is a passport control at the road border. I know some people who have driven there and literally turned round and driven back, I am a bit more cautious and would go to Oman for the weekend for example, that should trigger all the events you need.

As far as attestation is concerned your employer should tell you whether the documents need to be attested, and there are companies in the UAE who can arrange this for you. Depending on how big the company is that you work for they may have there own way of helping you do this.... I doubt your qualifications need to go back to your home country, but over the last few years due to some scams sometimes they do insist on this dependent on the qualification and if it is necessary in the first place
Good Luck

Jackie, OP is from Pakistan and would only be able to go home or to Kish unless they can get a visit visa for one of the nearby countries. In fact, the visa process cannot begin until they exit otherwise the application will be rejected. If you come in on a visa on arrival, that can be converted on payment of a fee.

Employment visa and military service. I am completing one of the 2 dozen forms this school sent me (I'm a teacher) and there's a box for military service. I spent 20 years int the US Navy as an SWO and I am wondering if I disclose it it may affect my ability to secure said visa. I've been denied a couple of visas before in Latin America and south Africa (the region, not the country) and can only think the cause was the disclosure of my service. Should I leave blank or perhaps put a different rate in the box?

Suggestions appreciated.

I'm currently on Tourist Visa on my second month and I signed a on Offer letter in one of the company and they are currently processing my visa. But I need to ban 2,000 AED and pay for my exits. And I don't have enough financials to answer for said expenses. Will there be ways that they could still cancel the processing of my visa.. And will I will be banned...? if yes how many months..?

If I am able to secure a job in free zone will I will be able to go back here still for work.

Please I need your out most response and badly needed your insights.

If you have a offer letter from company and they have committed to process your visa, then no issue, you go bakc to pakistan for exit. they will send you the employment visa. Documents are not necessary in some cases like free zone visa etc.

Hi I have a teaching job in UAE. The school have said they will sort my visa out for me. They are asking for a lot of information though. Can anyone tell me what kind of information is needed for a work visa?
