Visa Information

The decision to move to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) is not one to be taken lightly; it is a big move to a country very different from the UK.

There are a many different visa types for temporary and permanent residence in the UAE. We've outlined a few of these visas below in simplified format, and this list is by no means exhaustive.

This site should not be considered emigration advice. Visa information can and does change. For professional advice and the most current information, we strongly suggest that you contact the Emirates Embassy for up-to-date and thorough information on visas and immigration rules.

Removals to the UAE Britannia Bradshaws

Rules for visas and working in the UAE

Your first step is to secure a residential permit, and then your employer can apply for a labour card which allows you to work in the UAE. The residential permit can only be obtained when someone in the UAE legally sponsors you - usually your employer, although relatives living in the UAE are also eligible to sponsor you.

The Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs issue your labour card for an initial period of 30 days once you have shown them proof of employment. The company that employs you will then process all formalities required for obtaining your work permit. You cannot leave the company that sponsored your visa for another company without their permission and the new company re-processing your visa.

Went above and beyond

They were excellent. And went above and beyond. I don’t think improvements were needed. Used based on recommendation from friend.

Ryan, Andy and Shaun could not have been more helpful and efficient. Comments regarding your initial enquiry - Very easy. And not at all awkward having to do it via video.

Already recommended you to a friend

As we were running late additional crew arrived and helped the team. Used the company because you had recently moved my daughter. The two operatives were a credit to your company.

Well finally we're in, the two gents who moved us are a credit to your firm, they couldn't have been more kind and considerate. Already recommended you to a friend.
