Expatriates account for around 85 per cent of the UAE’s population, which is one of the highest in the world.

Every year, thousands of expats join the UAE workforce and many people return to their home countries once they have fulfilled their dreams and become independent financially.

When expats leave the UAE for good, they’re required to cancel their visas. Many people in the UAE may not know that they themselves can apply to cancel their entry permit.

They can cancel the entry permit in three ways – personal account, government establishment account and typing centres.

Below is the step-by-step guide issued by the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship Customs and Port Security (ICP) to cancel the entry permit:
