  1. I am told that I need to get an entry and exit certificate to finish my employment visa process to show that I have not been out of the country for more than 6 months. I want to use the ICP app that shows this information but was told that I must go to the Abu Dhabi airport. Is this true?

    1. I recommend verifying this with the immigration office for confirmation. They can provide the most accurate and up-to-date information regarding the entry and exit certificate and the need to visit the Abu Dhabi airport.
