  10. Hi, I am just confused about the type of resident permits; what is difference between “gcc residents entry permit” and “gcc accompanied entry permit”

    • GCC residents entry permit is for expatriates who where entering to UAE by them self. gcc accompanied means the person who is going along with the GCC citizen. Maybe he is his driver, nurse, housemaid etc.,

      • Hi, I am currently holding a UAE resident/ work permit which belongs to free zone, so if I want to apply dependent visa for my wife then it will be GCC resident entry permit or GCC accompanied entry permit ?

  11. Hi, I had applied online VISA two weeks back status is still Application in process . Called the call centre but not able to get help. What I do now
