UAE Visa Renewal Red Tape

Latest Visa Renewal Process in Al Ain

Go to SEHA Immigrant Screening Centre opposite Al Ain Hospital.
Hours: 7 am till 3 pm, Sun - Thu

You have three choices:
  • Go with the enormous crowd gathered under the palm trees...
  • Take the Fast Track - limited numbers - be there early
  • VIP service

VIP Medical Service

  • Go in the main front entrance and go upstairs. 
  • Walk through the Fast Track men's waiting room to the VIP waiting section.  
  • There is a tiny little VIP sign above the door.
  • There will be almost nobody, so the service is immediate.
  • You'll be done in about 20 minutes.
  • You need: Passport and passport copies (first 4 pages plus visa)
  • Cost: Dh500
  • In before 10h00, get results by 2 pm the same day
  • You need to get a blood test and a chest X-ray
  • They will send you a SMS when they are done around 1 pm - be there at 2 pm.

Typing Office - Emirates ID

  • There is a Typing Office (Registry shop) to the East of Jimmy Mall, also in the Municipal building.
  • Renew your Emirates ID for Dh370
  • You will get another SMS if it worked in a few minutes
  • Take the form to the Emirates ID building and have it stamped at reception - they don't even check it.

New Visa

  • Now your employer has 10 days to get you a new visa, after which you can collect you new ID at the Post Office.
  • You have to give your employer your medical report, stamped Emirates ID form, a copy of your medical insurance card, four photos and your passport, and hope you get it back...

La voila!
