    Hi Deepak, My 2 year old Son is in the Philippines right now and he needs to renew his visa on January.
    Is it necessary for him to be here for the renewal ? If so whats the specific month for him to be in Dubai before renewal? Appreciate a lot.

    Hello,

    My son who is now 9 months old has a UAE resident visa issued last Nov 2015. We went home last Dec 12,2015 and since then he hasn’t come back to the UAE up to this day. My question is, is his resident visa still be accepted if ever we will be planning to bring him back here in UAE? What are the procedures if ever?

    Hi Mr. Deepak

    I am planning to apply for my US tourist visa but my visa is due in November and the US consulate is requiring their visa applicants to have 6 months validity of their UAE visa. I would like to ask if how soon can I renew my UAE working visa? Can I renew it 3-6 months prior to the expiration? Thank you and have a good day!

    Hello,

    My visa expires on June 6, 2016 and am planning to go home to Philippines by July 15 to prepare for my wedding. I was hoping we can renew it by now before Ramadan starts. But my madam said we will renew it on the 19th of June. Now I am worried. Will I have enough time? Will my visa be renewed and released before July 15 if we’re only gonna renew it on the 19th of June?

    Hi i would like to ask alot regarding on visa renewal and insurance.

    My 2 kids is with us here in abu dhabi. We had their visa last feb.2014 without insurance provided. And it time to renew the visa now. My problem is my husband’s company won’t give the salary certificate easily. And the original labour contract that is with us is from the first contract he had is since 2013. My kids has no insurance from the first application of visa..because the company said they wont give any insurance to the kids or wife. My questions are:

    1. Is the old labour contract will do in renewal or we need both salary certificate and labour contract for renewal?

    2. Regarding on insurance can we just get the lowest insurance from daman. My husband’s insurance is high

    3. Tenancy contract is with my mother-in-law’s name. Same tenancy contract we use from last application. Can we still use it?

    4. Any possibility that i can sponsor my kids if all the requirement of my husband will not be provided?

    Thank you. I hope you can reply.

    My wife and son’s visa will expire this coming October 28, 2015. I’m about to start filing for their residence visa but I’m still waiting for my tenancy contract. I am living here in Sharjah. My landlord told me that the contract is still under process at Municipality. It’s been almost 2 weeks now.
    Do I still need the ejari for this or the contract will be attested already from Municipality?

    Hi, I have a query on renewal of my wife’s visa.

    My visa expires on November 10, 2015, and my wife’s visa expires in January 2016. I have already applied for my new Emirates ID and visa through my employer.

    Can I apply to renew my wife’s visa now, or should I wait for my new visa to come?

    My wife plans to go to India for 3-4 months in December.

    Also, is it necessary for my wife to be in UAE when I renew her visa? I was planning to go with her to India, then I could bring her passport back and get new visa, and then I can take the passport back to India with me.

      He need not come here personally. get his passport and cancel the visa. Let the typist know that your son is out of country.

    Dear Deepak,
    Hello!
    My wife’s visa is expiring on 29th Oct. 2015.
    As you have written above, I can get her visa renewed only one month in advance.
    She has to travel to India in the mid-month of September and will be staying there for more than 3 months. I want to get the visa renewed in more than one month advance (say, in next one week or so), where from I can get the permission, what is the procedure of it? Will the immigration officer ask for any kind of particular document for this early visa renewal application, if yes, what is that?
    Please let me know.
    Thanks in advance.

      There are no rules for renewing the visa in advance, nor will you be asked for any special document.
      You will only lose the time period till which the visa is valid, because the date which will be stamped on your new visa will be the date of your application.

      This is a late reply but might help readers.

      For the above issue, the rent has to be paid to the Real Estate Company/Landlord directly who will in return hand over the tenancy contract to you, which you can take to Sharjah Municipality and get it attested for 2% of your annual rent as fees.

      You cannot pay the rent to Sharjah Municipality directly as they are not the owner of your building.

      You will have to undergo medical examination, emirates id renewal typing prior to renewing the visa.
      This might take upto 3 days. You need to keep this in mind before your travel plans.

    Dear Deepak,

    My son is now 18 years old and is working in Europe during the winter season. He returns back to Dubai for a three to four month period during the summer season and therefore each month I have to do the usual visa run. Can you let me know if it is possible to get him a multi-entry visa which would cover him for that period of time to save on the visa run every month. He is a British passport holder.

    Many thanks and regards in advance,

      Yes, Multiple entry visas are available and you could apply directly with immigration.
      However, for British passports, it is visa on arrival for 40 days.
      However, I am not sure what is the max validity on the multiple entry visas.

      You need to have all the documents before renewing your dependants visa ie salary certificate, business income(if selfemployed), tenancy contract(Ejari) and so on.
      Without this, the visa can not be renewed.

      Masutha,
      On normal occasions Ejari would be enough.
      But, the immigration may request any document as they may want.
      Therefore, you should listen to what your PRO says.
      Why is your PRO renewing your visa? Your father could go to immigration and get this done.

        Technically it is required to cancel the visa by typing an application and submitting to immigration if you are in UAE.
        But if you are outside UAE for 6 months continuously, the visa gets cancelled automatically.

      You do not need to cancel your tenancy contract. However, you might need to cancel your wife’s visa before you can cancel your visa.
      You can apply fresh visa for your wife once your new visa is stamped.

      There is no grace period for UAE Residence visa expiry. It needs to be renewed prior to expiry.
      You could enter UAE on tourist, visit visa. Transit visa could also be taken.
