UAE visa validity

First time United Arab Emirates visas holders are worried about the UAE visa validity. Particularly in developing countries, the agent often cheats on the people. If you are coming to UAE, you should check the UAE Visa Status Online before you share your happiness with friends, family members, and relatives.

Why I am saying this?

Look, the manpower agencies are not honest, I saw people on cleaner visas, but agents said: “they’re stocker or factory workers”. It is illegal to have one kind of visa and work permit but perform different types of job.

Not only the newcomers require a Dubai visa check but also the UAE residents need to check their visa status online when they renew, after completing their previous contract term.

How can you check your visa status for UAE?

UAE government allowed the users to check their UAE visa validity online on the GDRFA (General Directorate Of Residency and Foreign Affair) website since 2011. That service still available if you want to try to click here.

The GDRFA website is somewhat difficult because it needs more information for checking the UAE visa status including entry permit number, visa application number, etc.

Look, Here is the point, many people don’t know the visa application or entry permit number, because, they apply through manpower agency or agent.

Even though you are the UAE resident, not every time you are carrying your passport with you. The Emirates ID works everything it allows you moving freely all over the United Arab Emirates.

When Smart Dubai or Smart UAE initiative developed all the government systems were upgraded. Now you compare the UAE government websites with other countries maybe these websites are 5yrs ahead than other governments in the world.

You don’t have the visa copy but you know your passport number and expiry date you can check the visa status online.

After changing the system the federal identity and citizenship (ICA) website also integrate the UAE immigration database to provides visa status online to the UAE visa holder.

Now you can check your visa on the GDRFA, ednrd Dubai and ICA websites. Not only you can check your Dubai or UAE visa online but you also can track your visa processing status.

Since the UAE government launched the smart government services most of the services are online. Anyone can access electronic gadgets such as smart mobile phones, tablets, and laptops.

If you want to check your visa validity for the UAE you need to know only the two things, your passport number, and its expiry date.
