Confusion surrounds key information documents
Moving abroad can incur a substantial amount of paperwork and there is a risk that some elements are overlooked or duplicated. Residency Visa Your employer is responsible for obtaining a residency visa for you and your family. This may take some time and you will need to surrender your passport temporarily and you cannot travel out of the UAE while your visa is in process. Tip: You will need six months validity in your passport to obtain a residency visa and travel around the region. Health insurance All medical services (except emergency) must be paid for in the UAE so make sure you have adequate medical insurance in place when you arrive. If this is not initially provided by your employer you should consider travel insurance from the UK until your employer’s health insurance commences. Bring vaccination certificates and children’s health records (red books). Emirates Identity Card This is mandatory for all UAE residents. Tip: Have plenty of passport photos available for registration.
