Contract renewal before vacation leave in Dubai

Postby suren1689 » 20 Jan 2015, 20:08

Dear Shawarma,

I,[edit by moderator]personal information removed, see forum rules[/edit] Indian nationality working as civil engineer in reputed company in Dubai for last 2 years. My Labor contract is about to expire on 24th feb 2015 and My visa expires on 16th april 2015.

I plan to go for vacation on 12th feb 2015 and return back on 14th march 2015, Do I face any issue in immigration at the time of arrival or Is it required to renew my contract before I go for vacation?

It would be great if u clarify my doubt. Thanks in Advance.

Re: Labour contract expiry but not residence visa during hol

Since Dubai immigration is concerned with your residence status rather than your labour contract, I don't think there would be a problem. However ...

... I am not the immigration department, and I can also think of a few ways where it might go wrong for you. For example

If immigration decides to check your labour status when you arrive back in the UAE.
If, as a result of your labour contract expiring, your employer says something to the labour department, who then notify the immigration department there's a problem.

You should ask your employer, and the immigration department. The Dubai immigration office has a 24 hr helpline you can call. You could also call the Ministry of Labour for a second opinion.

Anyway, I would have thought both you and your employer would want the contract renewed before it expires, which means it should be done before you go on vacation.
Please use the forum for questions, not the PM system.
