Transfer visit visa to employment Dubai

Salut Algerian girl and welcome to the Dubai forums :).

1. Yes. Go to the Dubai immigration department to renew - I think it costs about AED 500.
2. Yes. Your company (and/or you) takes documents to immigration and the Dubai labour department to start processing of your residence visa and labour card, but the application needs to be submitted before your visit visa expires.
3. Maybe. It's tougher to find a job these days with the global economic crisis, and you'll get the runaround from many employment agencies. First rule is if they ask you for a fee, forget about them. Here's more about Dubai jobs and Dubai recruitment. Good luck with your job search :).
