  6. This process is either misleading or out of date.
    The typing centre fee is 100aed. You can use any certified typing centre, I used the Marina Mall one.
    If the visa is for a dependant, you go to the post office in Abu Dhabi, not the General directorate of residence and foreign affairs. If you make this mistake, you will circle for ages and be unable to park your car, then they will turn you away anyway… Typical UAE.
