UAE residence visa gets cancelled automatically after 6 months
What is the legal procedure to cancel the visa?
Question: I am a resident of Dubai. I sent my son back to India around four months ago due to a host of reasons. I had sponsored his residence visa while he was here. Will his residence visa get cancelled after six months on its own or do I have to get it cancelled from one of the Amer centres? What is the legal procedure to cancel the visa? And if it does get cancelled on its own, do I need to do take care of any other formalities?
Answer: Upon completion of six months, the residence visa of your son should be cancelled automatically in the record of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (the 'DNRD'). However, after the expiry of six months, you may, for your satisfaction, check with DNRD if the visa is indeed cancelled from their record.
