Your UAE express visa can help you speed up your job seeking procedure if you follow the below steps.
After applying for a job vacancy, your potential employer might request you to attend an online interview. If selected for the position, you can move on with the rest of the steps.
If you are selected for the vacancy, you can request your employer to go ahead with typing the labour approval. Your employer will email you the Ministry of Labor Offer Letter after it is issued. This has to be signed digitally and sent back to your employer.
Visit the Foreign Affairs and UAE Embassy in your home country to get your educational certificates and degrees attested. If you plan on applying for a family residence visa after you go to UAE, you can also get your marriage certificate and children's birth certificate.
After the labor approval is issued, you can contact Arabiers for an Express Dubai Tourist Visa, which will be issued within the specified duration.
We advise you to book your flight on the weekend (Friday or Saturday in UAE) so that you can start the necessary work on a weekday without much hindrance. For instance, you can choose to fly to Dubai on Sunday night so that you can start on all procedures by Monday morning.
This step is important if you want to ensure that all the working conditions are upto your standard and meet the requirements of your ideal working environment and any other preferences. If everything is of satisfaction, you can proceed with the next step.
The employer will do this immediately after your labor approval has been signed.
This step will also be done by your employer and is equivalent to an e-visa which can be used to enter Dubai.

The entry permit will be valid for 60 days from the date you will have to enter Dubai.

Your residence visa will be issued after your medical test results are handed over. If your employment contract also includes a provision for your family visa, then all procedures will begin after this.
After receiving the Emirates ID, you can freely travel throughout Dubai or other Emirates of the UAE. It is legally mandatory to have an Emirates ID Card to be considered a lawful resident of the UAE. Wearing colored contact lenses or henna on the hands is prohibited during the medical and biometrics procedure.
Now that you have a rough idea of how a Dubai Express visa can speed up your employment process, We will focus on why a residency visa is essential when working in UAE.
A UAE Residence permit is a document that legally approves the holder to stay in the UAE for the permitted period. The validity period of a residence permit is usually similar to the contract period (mostly 2 to 3 years) with your company but can be renewed many times with a validity period between 2 and 10 years. It is your employer’s responsibility to apply for and renew your residence visa.
Previously, applicants needed to exit UAE for a residence permit. Since UAE has updated its rules and made them easier, residence permit applicants are no longer required to exit the country for the permit to be issued.
