Cancellation of residence visa:

If you are a person who lives or works in the UAE and intends to permanently leave the country, you must make sure that your residence visa is properly canceled and that you are given the necessary guarantees.

In most cases, only the guarantor or his authorized representative (such as a representative, for example, in the case of companies) is permitted to proceed with the cancellation of residence visas that he has pledged, and the guarantor himself is not permitted to execute the application without his consent and signature.

The Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization must be contacted with a request to terminate the employment contract and the employee's work card before the employer can terminate the employee's work residence visa. Both the employer and the employee must sign this request before the employer submits it to the federal agency in charge of identity, citizenship, Customs, and port security.

A letter signed by the employee indicating that he has received all of his salary, dues, and end-of-service payments from the employer must be submitted to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization for the employer to terminate the employee's work permit.

The guarantor must first terminate the sponsored visa for any family members' residence visas, such as his wife and children, before canceling his resident visa.
