Residence Entry Permit Expiration


UAE Residence Entry Permit
Entry permits are classified into different sections as work, mission and residence. An entry permit is used to enter the UAE through any of the entry points. A visa entry permit is usually valid for up to 60 days from the date of issue as per the rules printed on it.

For example, if a residence visa entry permit is issued on 01 July 2013, then you can use it to enter the UAE through the entry points anytime from 01 July 2013 until 29 August 2013. Once you enter into UAE you can stay up to 60 days before stamping the residence in your passport.

You can make an application to renew the entry permit by paying a fee of AED.220/-

Documents Required
  • Application form through E-form and fees paid
  • Corporate sponsored application signed and stamped by the sponsor.
  • Copy of the valid establishment card
  • Copy of the valid trade license of the business
  • Copy of the sponsor’s passport for the personal sponsorship
  • The original entry permit
You can renew for the first time after 60 days from the date of issue and then renewing it for the second time for another 60 days after the first renewal period. Each renewal is valid for 60 days.

After the two renewals the permit will expire and you will have to make a new application through eform. This applies to entry permits for tourists, visitors, employment, residence, etc. The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs of the emirates control the issue of entry permits.
