Some considerations before visa cancellation
Utilities

Dubai visa cancellation rules with debts

To avoid outstanding debts in UAE, it is necessary to terminate your bank account, loans & credits card. Most of the employers can ask for clearance certificate from bank. Hence Dubai visa cancellation during bank loan is not possible. Your bank may freeze your account once you put your resignation. So please plan accordingly to ensure the cash is withdrawn from your account.

Other utilities

It is also necessary to terminate your electricity, water connection and telephone lines. Your employees will also require for the clearance from other utility departments for initiating the Dubai work visa cancellation procedure. Your telephone connection may be disconnected once you put your resignation. Hence it is ideal to have an alternate phone connection.

Accommodation

If the accommodation is provided by the employer you may need to vacate within the grace period mentioned in the contract . Before resignation, plan for the stay till you leave the country.

Grace period after visa cancellation Dubai

Once the visa is cancelled, you will have a grace period of 30 days within which you need to exit the country. After that for every day overstayed, a fine of AED 25 should be paid for first 6 months, AED 50 next 6 months and AED 100 beyond that.

Consequences due to non cancellation of visa

Visa cancellation is necessary to avoid any complication for future entry to UAE and other GCC countries.

Absconding

If the employer is not officially notified about your departure, then you can be declared as absconding. This can result in a ban to enter or work in UAE for a specific term. You might lose the final salary and gratuity.

Dubai visa cancellation rules with debts

If you have outstanding debts, you may be subject to imprisonment at any attempt to re enter the country even in transit.

NOTE: By law, no employer could detain the worker if they have submitted the resignation within the notice period. In case, employer detain the employee beyond notice period, employee can raise complaint in Dispute section of Ministry of Labour.

  7. My maid left dubai without notice, before cancellation. it was the second year of her service and we renewed the visa just 4 months back. now she is in India, and she is not coming back. so what shall we do as, we believe it is not good for us if she return with the same visa, without our knowledge, back to UAE and work here illegally(as she got 8 months left in her visa, which is under our sponsorship). We could not cancel her visa before leaving to india. what shall we do in this situation to cancell her visa or clear ourself from consequences due to any act from her side. and what are the consequence that the maid will face due to this act.

  8. hi, in 2001 i was came back to india from dubai and i was not go back.I spend 2 yrs over there.

    i could not get signature of sponsor on application of cancellation visa form because he was fraud & runway tell me how can i get my visa cancelled. i have already driving license too.

    1. The best way for your work permit cancellation would be to file a complaint at the Disputes Department at the MoL.

  10. Dear All,

    Family visa cancellation for changing job is stopped from 26th March 2013. Call amer service 800 5111

  11. Dear, i need your advise for below issue.
    Can i go on annual leave after sending one month notice to my existing company?
    After coming back, i will request existing company to cancel my visa.

  12. @Muhammad Ravi Sagar – As far as I understand, in the UAE there is no issue, in going on an annual leave while serving the notice period. But it does vary from company to company. I have also seen in some cases that annual leave being denied while on notice period. It depends on your company & your managers. It would be ideal to go on your annual leave and then proceed with the visa cancellation

  13. Hi… I work for Indian company and I had come here through my indian company to work for my client. My visa is been sponcered by a sponcer here. Now that i resigned my work from the Indian company. And now i had come here to cancel my Residence Visa. My sponcer here are not cancelling my VISA. They are telling that they require a mail from my Indian Company inorder to cancel. And Indian compnay is not sending the mail to cancel. What can be done now.

    1. @Maria – The company policies may be different for different companies. Primarily please try speaking to the HR in the Indian company about this issue. Follow ups may be required. Now if that is not working it is ideal to approach the Disputes Department of the MoL and ask for their advice. Now according to a report in one of the newspapers, the employer should not refuse a worker's request for visa cancellation. The sponsor has no right to detain the workers. If a company is not cancelling the work visa after your cordial talks with them, as a last resort you can file a complaint at the Disputes Department at the MoL.

  14. Hi,
    My mom is sponsored by my brother under (humanitarian case), her visa was cancelled as he was changing jobs in dubai.

Also what is the grace period in her case.

    Thanks

    1. As far as I understand you don't need to cancel your parent's visa on your job change. 

  15. Hi,

    A company has cancelled the employee’s visa and has advised him that he should still have to work in the company for 30 days after cancellation. Moreover, the company will send the employee home to his country on the last day of the 30 days grace period after cancellation date.

    Is this legal as per the labour law? Please advice the employee’s rights on this situation.

    thank you

  16. Hi, I am re-applying to UAE. My new employer asks me a copy of my Visa Cancellation. I think I gave my copy to the immigration. How can I request for a copy?

    I would like to know whether I can change my spouse (who is already here) status from Tourist to Family residence without exiting Dubai UAE. And what will be the cost for entry permit and visa status change.

    Regards

    1. As far as I know, you can convert the visit visa into your residence visa by paying a fee of around AED 500 – AED 600 the other option is to do a visa run where they will have to exit & re-enter the UAE

  31. Hi, I need help regarding visa cancellation. When I got hired they asked me to sign in the offer letter that if I leave I would need to pay “all” hiring expenses. I resigned last month in my FZ company. So they asked me to pay 3700+ for visa, camcellation fee 390, ticket for exit 577, overstay fee when waiting for the visa to be released 900 for 8 days, and other fees that amounted to a total of 7000 AED less my 1 mos salary. The employer wont cancel me unless I pay that amount. I just wonder if that is just since its a FZ company. I also wonder if 3700aed is really the cost for visa since I havent gotten my medical and labor card yet.
