When do I get my Company Incorporation Documents?

Day 2 - Trade License released by the Free Zone and scanned copy of the original will be sent to you via email. You may start operating your company from this point.

Day 3 - Original Trade License, Articles of Incorporation, Certificate of Incorporation, Share Certificate, Lease Agreement (if applicable) and Company Stamp are available for collection at CREATIVE ZONE.

When do I get my Visa?

Day 8 - Pre-approval is granted. Company immigration card application will be submitted to immigration for processing.

Day 15 - Company electronic immigration card is issued. Make payment to CREATIVE ZONE for E-Channel Registration.

Day 16 - Trade License/Immigration Card is registered with the E-Channel system.

Day 16 - Complete and submit visa application forms and supporting documents and passport photos to CREATIVE ZONE.

Day 20 - Print your colored Electronic Entry Visa 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 make a payment to CREATIVE ZONE to carry out the same without having to leave the country.

Note:

- 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 56 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

Day 23 - Proceed to Al Baraha Hospital or Al Karama Medical Fitness Express Service Center in Dubai for your Emirates ID Card process followed by your medical test - if this is your first visa and first Emirates ID, you will need to carry out your Emirates ID card process in Fujairah.

Day 24 - Collect medical test results from Al Baraha Hospital or Al Karama Medical Fitness Express Service Centre in Dubai and deliver the same to CREATIVE ZONE offices along with your passport, completed signed and stamped original employment contract, Emirates ID card receipt, entry visa (with change of status stamp) along with 8 alternate passport size photos on white background, all of which will be submitted to immigration for residency stamping.

Day 29 - Passport is released by immigration stamped with your Residency Visa. A scanned copy of your Residency Visa will be emailed to you.
