Expatriates in the UAE will soon no longer require residency visas to be stamped on their passports...
"This will be applicable for residency documents issued after April 11"
Before this, They stamp sticker (Residence Visa) on passport. Now That process are not required. It reduce to timing.What's that Visa sticker ?
How long does the stamping usually take these days? Do they take the passport and you sit and wait or it's more like you go somewhere and get it done?Please be informed that, based on the recent directives of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai (GDRFA), physical submission and stamping of passports are still required processes for UAE Residence Visa Applications.
Residence Visa Stamping to Passport is BACK - we got the Information from Immigration today 8:30 AM.
It's taking 1-2 business days - Ramadan slow things down.How long does the stamping usually take these days? Do they take the passport and you sit and wait or it's more like you go somewhere and get it done?
Timewise nothing changed even without stamping - the stamp is put in 5 minutes however GoV works slow due to Ramadan.So it's still like a 3-4 days stay requirement right?
Let's see if they're keeping this permanent or not.
