Can I leave country without cancelling my visa?
I am a shareholder in a company and am on an
investor residence visa issued by Dubai’s General
Directorate of Residency and Foreigners’ Affairs (GDRFA). I recently
sold my 40 per cent share of the company to one of the shareholders
and wrote him a waiver. I also received the value of the sold shares.
At present, I have no stake in the company and my residence visa will
expire next month. I intend to go back to my home country and will not
return to the UAE. However, I need to leave urgently and will not have
time to complete the cancellation procedure with the GDRFA. Can I
leave Dubai without formally cancelling the visa with the authority?
The questioner may not leave the UAE without formally
cancelling the visa. The questioner
should first make a sale contract between him and the new purchaser,
get the document attested by the
Public in the presence of all partners so they can sign the
said contract (amendment to the memorandum of association), and then
this contract shall be submitted, along with an application to cancel
the visa, to GDRFA. The residence visa will then be cancelled. The
procedure will not take too long, and it is in the best interest of
the questioner to avoid any future liability in case the company faces
any problems (GN).
