I already informed to the company, that i will not going to join without proper offer letter & salary details but they did not replied yet regarding salary details.

    I asked them, if possible then kindly cancel the visa so that i can apply to another company. They refused to cancel or not taking proper response, visa approval date is 19th Nov 2015 and expired by 17th Jan 2016.

    1. Evangeline,
      You have already overstayed on your visa.
      It is better to approach MOL and submit your complaint with regard to your employer promises.
      You will have to pay overstay fine of 25 dirhams per day.

      1. What does it mean? “ENTRY PERMIT IS NOT VALID” Does it mean that my visa is already cancelled?


  94. I have been working for a company for 5 months now without me signing labour contract agreement form.The company gave me my resident I’d,pls what should I do about this,.

    1. Kayzee,
      You should receive labour contract or you could get it through MOL website or app.

    1. Elisa,
      Do you have a labour approval?
      However, you must obtain your visa asap.
      If you overstay on visit visa, the fine is 125 dirhams per day.
      Please note that.

  100. Hello Deepak,
    Hope you are doing well…
    I had gone to Dubai in the month of March (21st to be precise) in search of a job… I however managed to get a job & also the offer letter & everything…
    I returned to India on 20th April…
    Ever since I am waiting for my employment visa… The above process that you have given, requires an Entry Permit no. Which I don’t know…
    How do I possibly check my employment visa status because it has 4 months now….
    The employer is in touch with me but they keep telling me to wait & the wait just seems to extend…

    1. Mary,
      What kind of company have you signed offer letter with?
      It should not take such a long time.
      When you are appointed, first labour approval is taken then the Employment visa Entry permit is applied which enables you to enter UAE.
      Then medical, ID and visa stamping is done.
      This is too long for any process.

  109. Hi
    I need to ask:
    1. I have checked my work visa application status:
    it is under process from Ministry of labor
    but the application type is e work permit, I have noticed that some other applications has the type of (e work permit after approval)…
    what is the difference between e work permit and e work permit after approval..?
    2. what is the process after that? how many days usually does it take to be finally approved and printed?

    1. Rim,
      1. Nowadays all the work permits are ework permits. (Electronic Work Permits)
      2. Once Labor approval is done, your company will need to apply for Entry permit Employment Visa.

  116. Hi Deepak! I’d like to know if the online portal can also provide information about Ban status n the UAE.

    I have a friend who is banned for a year starting last year (May 2014) and she hasn’t left UAE. She was banned by her previous company after they had settled their issue in the court. My question is, since a year has passed, do you think the ban is lifted? If not, what are her options to lift the ban? I am aware that she already has accumulated a huge overstay fine for being with no resident visa for a year. She was advised by one of our friends that her only option is to work in a free zone company(Is this true?). She is applying for jobs but still to no avail and she is not able to pay for her fines just yet. Your reply is highly appreciated.

    1. Pinkerbelle,
      The labour ban is automatically lifted.
      No, she may not be able to work in freezone as her status in immigration is not clear.

  117. I came to UAE with a tourist visa and god so good i got an employment . I worked with the employer one week before my visa expired. i was asked to return to home country and my employment visa will be sent to me ten days after i return home.

This company is controlling by the ministry of interior(printing press). I want to know Sir, how long should i wait for this process to finalize?. How long does the security clearance takes to finalize?. Thanks Sir.

    can you please tell me what is the difference between Residence Visa Validity”” & “”Residence Application Status””

    i can find results in visa validity but not results in application status.. what does it mean?

  120. Dear Deepak,

    I got a new job offer from a company in Abu dhabi. Earlier i was working with one fujairah freezone company for a period of 1.5 years. Now the new company applied for labor pre-approval on 1st of April for around 6 new joines like me. All other employees got approval other than me on last day, mine is pending with approval and the status in mol is shown like transaction under process.

    So my worry is there any issues for my visa and normally how long it will take for labor pre-approval.?

    Kindly suggest me what i have to do in this situation as my grace period will expire on thursday.

    Thank you

    1. Abdul,
      I can not say anything on the days taken by authorities.
      They have their procedures.
      Post grace period, you will accrue fines.

    1. Val,
      Ajman free zone is an independent entity and the companies need not follow UAE Labour law.
      If your contract says that you have to pay, then you have to.

  125. hello Deepak,
    my employer told me that he has submitted my entry permit visa, can I check the status I dont have application number?

    1. Sadath,
      Yes you can.
