Cancelled visa in UAE? Here are your only options


- Advertisment -

As some companies in the UAE impose salary deduction for their employees, others are relieving their workers as they adjust with the Covid-19 impact on businesses.

If you lost your job and your employment visa has been cancelled, you might be thinking about your options due to job loss.

One this is for sure, if your visa is cancelled after March 1, you’re not qualified for th visa extension or fine waiver offered by the government of UAE.

The visa exemption is clearly for expired visas only, however, those on cancelled visas have three options:

  1. Secure a new employment visa

According to a Gulf News report, this is the best case scenario if one’s visa gets cancelled after March 1.

“In such a case, you would need to put your family’s visa on hold and make sure the visa from your previous employer is cancelled and your new employer applies for the visa within the grace period,” the report noted.

In most cases, the grace period is 28 days. The specific date is mentioned in the cancellation paper.

  1. Apply for a visit visa

While securing a visit visa is temporarily suspended for visitors outside the country, the service is still available for people inside the country.

Visit visas can be availed through travel agents.

  1. Exit the country

To make sure you don’t incur any fines, one can go back to their country.
