Day 28 - Collect your original Pink Colored Entry Visa from CREATIVE ZONE and carry out change of status (In/Out Stamp) either by exiting and re-entering the country i.e. by driving to the Hatta/Oman border (if applicable), or by submitting your passport and payment to CREATIVE ZONE to carry out the same without having to leave the country.

NB:

- If the change of status is completed within the 30 day grace period following the cancellation of your previous residency visa or prior to the expiry of your tourist visa or visit visa or visa on arrival, you will not incur any overstay fines.

- Any overstay fines that you may be incurring will continue until you complete the change of status.

- Should you be outside the country when the visa is issued, and are not from one of the 48 countries that are granted a visa on arrival (please contact us for a full list of the same) and are entering the UAE on your new entry visa, which will constitute your change of status, please be sure to contact your airline prior to travelling, as many airlines will need to see a copy of your entry visa prior to travel in order to verify the same and then upload a copy of the visa onto their system, and provide you with an ‘OK to Board’. The same would apply if you are inside the country when the visa is issued, and plan to exit the country with your visa in hand, and then re-enter the UAE by air.

Once you have carried out your change of status you will NOT be able to exit the country until your residency visa process has been completed
