Job hunting in UAE during visa grace period? Know the law – News

Q: My employment visa was valid till 2021, but I resigned earlier this year. My visa will expire in a few days and, after that, I will be on the visa grace period. Am I allowed to look for a job during this period?
 
A: You may search for new employment during your grace period stay in the UAE upon the cancellation of your work permit and employment visa. If you are not able to find new employment within 30 days, you are advised to leave the UAE to avoid overstay fines. You may approach the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs for any further queries.

KNOW THE LAW

If you are not able to find new employment within the 30-day grace period, you are advised to leave the UAE to avoid overstay fines.
