UAE Visa and Passport Requirements

Post Posted: Sat May 31, 2008 12:21 am

I have just read on the UAE Country Gude that your passport needs to have been issued for 6 months prior to your visa being given. Is this correct? I have seen no mention of this in my other reading so far.

The problem is that I have just applied for my passport to be renewed and I am hoping to get over in 3 months time.

not heard of that one before, quite often countries require 6 months left on a passport. The PRO of the company should be able to put you straight on that one.

I've never come accross that rule either, I've had staff and visitors travel in on crisp, brand new passposrts without any problem, but best check with the embassy and / or Company PRO as Busy Bee advises.

oh a little while back on a different forum, i was trying to say to somebody that renting in local housing ie areas such as bahia, fafal, shahama, baniyas, mafraq etc is illegal for expats, its a local housing area as the properties were given to the 'locals' as a gift and so they are not allowed to rent them out to make money, but she complained and moaned and said it was not true, but currently at the minute i know of many 'expats' that have been given evicition notices, some only 4 days, some 4 weeks etc. as the municipality is currently going around these areas and checking, also was trying to inform people regarding employing part time maids, and the consequences of these, that being illegal etc and many other things, but hey hoh i will still carry on passing on the knowledge that i have accumulated over the many years and if it helps somebody then that is good, as i wish i had the same opportunities to ask things when i first came here, i had to learn the hard way, and if you think the paperwork situation is bad now, it was 10 million times worse 10 years ago but as i always say you should get a few peoples opinion on things and take it or leave it you decide what you want from the information that is provided as its always somebodies personal circumstances and here it will be different for different people.
