Earned points :17

Hi all,

I am among the successful candidates who received job offer from ADCO which conducted it's recruitment campaign in ADNEC. My interview was on 13th Oct and I have signed an offer for grade 13. I am sure there are many more successful candidates who are in abudhabiliving.net . Let's use this forum as a platform to connect and help each other for a smooth relocation to ADCO & Abu Dhabi. Comments from experts like Ebdoosh will be highly appreciated.

Well guys, wid a lil research on the same site u may come to know ADCO whole process can take even 06 months.It has been only 4months till now .Thats what i found out from the earlier batches recruited but surely the wait game is a disappointing one.In the whole process many time i feel its all over now but somehow still retaining the hope .Got the never coming SC cleared and now waiting desperately for the visa and who knows if it ever comes or no ...

GoodLuck to all buddies ...

Security Clearance

scoprionking's picture

I got a job offer in National Petroleum Construction Company. I had submitted all the required documents (Including Good Character certificate from Abu dhabi Police, my Degree Attested from all required authorities in PAK and UAE,) to the HR of NPCC. Now they told me that it will take a week or 2 to get security clearance from the govt, then after i will get a final offer letter and can resign from my current job.

Before i had some domestic problems, because of which my wife file a case against me in Dubai. but that is already cleared and i got my Passport back from Dubai police and remove my name from black list and the case is also removed from the Police station after getting the Dubai Court's Paper, after that i got good character certificate from Abu Dhabi police)
Other than the above incident i never had a case in UAE or in Pakistan.
Need any one's comments, that whether the above case which is already closed and clear has any thing to do my security clearance from Abu Dhabi govt for the job in NPCC

thanks in advance for your valuable comments.

Hi All

Balan Grigore's picture

Hello

I am from Europe; in October I pass the interview position Drilling Engineer. I reject this position, because I didn’t has enough experience, after that they propose me to apply for Graduate program. Only a problem is that I need to be approved Manager. I want to ask if anyone has same situation. And how long time it will take to get Managerial approve.

Best Regard.

Need info from someone with issued Visa from ADCO

fga9691's picture

Anyone who has visa already could share us in this Forum? What type of visa have you received from ADCO-a working or transit type visa? Did you receive it through an email or Post Office Box? I'm just curios and worried as well since I already left the country I previously worked for. What I have given to them was my previous mailing address.

Anyone could share his experience concerning this matter? Thanks!

Thanks tonu1

fga9691's picture

Thanks for sharing and hope many more comments to come out from the other candidates. You're right; we are in the same boat and in the same situation looking for a definite answer from them. I called a long distance for so many times to several persons but I didn't get a clear answer though lastly someone told me that he will email me after he checked my file, but wasnt an email received until now. I understand the situation that he can't give directly a clear response if the management directed to do so. Somehow, we should trust ADCO and have more patience, these are the things only we can do for the meantime. In my email, an agency shared me that ADCO's activities are getting slow down which the reason of delays. I accepted the fact but my question only, how long should I wait and how will I guarantee that I will have this work at the end of waiting. Just hope for the best for all of us.

Thx for sharing fga9691 .Exactly same is my story just like u.Never received dat email which ADCO say will come shortly giving details.However u have got a point here, we must wait lil more as i remember in Oct 13-14-15 they called 1300 candidates for interviews.If they selected 75-100 out of them thru their campaign for thir upcoming projects even then its not easy to mobilize them all at a time.However a clear status update should have been made by HR.Anyway please stay in touch as u seem to be the only 1 having a case like me at this stage and i will also keep u updating.

welcome to the waiters

tonu1's picture

Hi guys,
Gr8 to see some more Malaysian brothers stepping forward and adding to the list of Waiters (lolz as mrusdi66 said dat).The latest at my end is that i called the agent today as none from ADCO seemed to be lifting phone (as usual) and requested them to make it very clear wts our status.They said nothings in their hands ADCO still syaing them that its under processing for all but it can take some more time.I asked the agent wts their previous experience wid ADCO then they said it can take 07 to 08 months total n u guys r waiting for 5 months only.wow....
I would like to request my Malaysian bros to plz write in English so dat oders can also remain in the loop and i guess v can have many more here in the list...more ppl= more hope more hope = less wait lolz....although the equation seems to be strange ...hope for the best n keep updating please...

01 more thing i would like to share n its important as per my agent , whoever is selected by ADCO thru them has been recruited sooner or later except 01 person out of 375 who had some security issues due to which his Emp visa rejected...Thats all from my side.Now waiting for others to share their story n experience...

Hi tonu1,
Do you mind to share the agent name? was it Sofomation or else?
I know one of my friend taken the same position as mine was just informed by agency that his position is no longer available due to adco re-organization reason, meaning he failed joining adco. He even has not finished his SC yet, after waiting for 5 months.

Dear Budak,

There were only 2 agencies dere on interview and lemme give u the hint mine was not Sofomation.Sad to hear about ur freind.1st such case i heard.As far as i know Adco conducted interviews for their future expansion project also at that time.As per my info 1300 candidates were arranged to appear at ADNEC for interviews.I dont no exactly how many they recruited and finalized but surely it sounds like a huge recruitment campaign and dey simply cant reject many selected candidates after spending that much on them.The wait game therefore goes on ...and as they say hope for the best and keep prepared for the worst...sometimes i start assuming its all over now lets c which way the wind blows now...

Hi all,

I am new to this forum. Very happy to see that a lot of people with the same situation with me, waiting for the visa....

I plan to join ADCO this April, but until today I haven't heard anything about the visa and I have resigned from my employer. Initially I didn't want to resign yet until I see the visa. But considering that I have to give 2 months notification prior the effective date I did so.

A little bit worry if I would experience the same way like Budak. Budak, I am very to hear that, man.

I'm still waiting too. I'm wishing that ADCO's done with all SC and just delaying the notice due to work slow down. Otherwise, it will be more sad to think of how long more the process will take again if they just held up the SC processing first, then later you'll be notified that you are disapproved.
But I'm always hoping the best for all of us guys.

Well I thought I am the only one waiting for SC seems like there are 2 or more in the same boat as me. Looks like we have 2 categories of waiters (though one senior the other), SC and Visa.

General advise is done lose hope and keep doing what you are doing. Do not resign until you see your SC/Visa (a bird at hand is worth 2 in the bush). Keep praying and hoping for the best!

Congratulation to Budak !!! and thanks for the prayer.

A good news not only for Budak but also for the others who are still playing the waiting games. At least we know that the game is still continuing, not ended up somewhere we don’t know.
Sometimes I want to give up because ADCO HR is not so professional. With such a long waiting time, they should inform us the progress of either our SC or visa. Or at least respond to anyone who asks. From my correspondence with them, I realize that they will not respond to your mail unless they have the right answer.

My advise is the same with one4all: Do not resign until you see your visa.

Probably need to arrange by myself... :-(
Flight schedule made on 31-March night, and should be in the office on 1-Apr 8:00am..
I will keep updating once we reach adco later, insha Allah.
Keep hoping, keep smiling....see u all soon.

Budak Bageur - family relocation

ebdoosh's picture

In order to relocate your family, you have to submit application for SC & visa for your family as well. This also takes time. So I am not sure if it is a good idea to wait this process completes so you can come together with your family to Abu Dhabi? Another way is to pay yourself their flight tickets as well as visit visa ( not sure if Indonesian is granted free 1 month visa). Make sure you keep the receipt for reimbursement later.

What I did last time was I came here alone, submitted SC & visa for my family and in a meantime looking for a house. Even after I moved in to a new house a month later, my family SC still not ready. So I paid for their flight ticket and claimed later from the company.

Also you must be aware at this point that you entitled for unaccompanied baggage. 300kg + 50kg for each child but max is 500kg ( if the policy is still the same since last year).

Welcome to Abu Dhabi & ADCO. Good luck with your career endeavour and hope you keep your smile on after joining ADCO.

ebdoosh,
Thanks for your suggestion. In fact, we already in AD since 1-April. My family came with 1 month tourist visa. We are staying in Al-Manzel Hotel. Adco booked 2 studio rooms for us.
Regarding family visa, it should be no problem (that's what I heard from HR). But they should have exit stamp on their passport.

rvishnu84,
Congratulation man...dont worry, you'll be fine.
In my case, I still did not signed the contract, yet due to some mistakes written in the contract. Hope next sunday it will be done.
During this week, I had completed the formalities, such as medical check, xray, blood test, finger print, opening bank account, filling some forms, submitting original passport and original visa (please make copies of them before sent the originals).
I also visited some flats (adco recommended agency) and some schools for my kids.
The rest of the times are sight seeing and shopping....lol

Will keep you update of the latest.

hi Budak_Bageur,
Good to know you ara already there with your family. I need your advise actually. I also planning to bring along my family, since it will be very difficult form my wife to travel alone with 2 kids later. So how actually you do that? Do you ask adco to provide you with flight tickets for the whole family? And did you request for a 2 studio rooms too?
I'll be there tentatively 1st of June (havent got my 2nd visa yet). So not too long from now.
Thanks in advance!

Advise and suggestion

MNM_79,

We are moving from Qatar as I don't want my children missed their schools. I was prepared visit/tourist visa for my family, not adco. Flight tickets were provided by my previous company as part of the end of service.
The 2 rooms were booked for 10 nights by adco but I will be responsible for 1 room for my children. Later we will be moving to adco temporary house/flat till we get our residency and finding the rented house/flat.

Normally, adco will send the calling visa for your family once you get your residency visa. So they can travel with these calling visa. You may/can pickup them at your own cost, but your family will get one-way tickets from adco to travel from your country of origin to AD (as told by HR).

Hope these will helps.

Cheers,

Thanks budak for the advise. Im from malaysia actually, so my family should be able to get 30 days visa on arrival. Im hoping the family visa can be done wirhin those time period.
Flight ticket wise, ill ask adco if they can provixe the tickets together with me. If not, than i have to buy my own and claim later than.

HR

Budak_Bageur's picture

MNM_79,
Agreed. I had the same experience when dealing emails with them. I finally had signed the contract after been 8 days since arrived!!! Try to contact by phone as this seems to be the only way they will hear.

Same thing here

Coly's picture

Hi,
Good to know that am not alone in this waiting game. I got a mail from the HR agent that my position is on hold due to re-organizational changes and that I will be updated as time gone on, I later placed a call only to be told to keep waiting. I am very positive about the whole process, patience is virtue they say. I am Grade 14 Reservoir Geologist. anybody with the same issue....

Cheers

Coly & Tonu1

Congrats to ravishnu & budak baguer first.

To Coly, you are lucky that HR responded your letter and personally said you to wait. For my case, I had wrote several emails but I responded none even once. But my agency somehow giving some response of what's going on. The same answer, the post is on hold and wait until they give further steps to do. Actually what I wish to hear only from them is not to pending this issue for long time without doing any updates even saying just "Hi, we are still in the process and wait until our further notice".. Within a week after the forum, they sent email advice actually to individuals who accepted the letter offer which I admired that they did for more or less thousand of successful candidates. Now, it's 6 months now, I wish they could update us somehow thru email those lesser remaining candidates that would refreshes us. The Question is until when we should wait-up to 8 months or more? So that we can be proactive of things can impact us.

Thanks tonu1, you are right that everyone sticks around should share of updates. So that we could now what's really going on.

Coly, tonu1 and to others, your initiative of calling and emailing the employer reps, and sharing it here in this forum, I wish and hope would cause an immediate positive result to everyone of us.

To Ravishnu and Bageur, may be you can help us finding the reasons of what holding us the others candidates. Thanks and mabruk guys!

update

Budak_Bageur's picture

Hi fga9691 and mrosman66,

Regarding reasons of some position on hold, to be honest I have no idea. I am not in capacity to answer. But the clue that adco had done some internal re-organization seems to be true. as of my case, I still dont know where I would be positioned, all I know I will be in exploration dept, but who's my group member, what should I do...still not clear.

I believe the time to join will come for you soon. Some of people here said they have to wait for 8 months since interviewed.
So I think there still chances for those who already have offers to join. Never loose any hope.

Regarding schooling there might be alot of choises and places for our kids. You can find related info by contacting the schools directly. Fees are ranging from 9K to 65K, depending on which school you are looking. Just look at their websites.
Living in AD so far so good, just be careful of your spending.

Cheers,

sharing is caring

shrek of fox's picture

Assalamualaikum for Muslim & very good day for others..

I am Malaysian & just report duty on 19th March at ADCO, I am also from Oct 2011 campaign.
I've follw this thread since 1st post.
Am here just to share something that might be clear ur puzzle.

3 weeks am at HR office, what can I say is, everyday at least 3-4 new hired report duty from Oct 2011 campaign.
2 times frankly talk with 1 of the guys, recruitment dept, he said "we hav more than 300 names to complete the SC, Visa & ticket... pls understand me.." huhuhuhu ticket is last stage which is very easy as per request, but the SC & Visa is beyond his scope.. yeah gov things.. AM NOT DEFENDING HIM.. as I said just to share.. insyaALLAH the time will come..

what I did regarding Family visa ;
bring along my kids BIRTH CERTS which is translated to english & attested at UAE Embassy in my country.
bring MARRIAGE CERT which is translated to english & attested at UAE Embassy in my country.
bring the color scan copy all family members PASSPORT.
bring at least 2 passport photos with WHITE background.
ONCE I GOT MY RESIDENT VISA, straightly I went to Infinity Service at Marina Mall, along with EMPLOYMENT & SALARY cert in arabic, applying Family Visa. 2-3 hours completed, rush to Ministry of Affair to collect visa, alhamdulillah got Family Visa within 1 day.. cost me Dhs260/head to get same day the visa.. normal next day only Dhs150/head.. choice is urs.. Now they are ready to mobilise..

For School ;
bring photo copy my kids BIRTH CERT (copied the translated), Vaccination Record, Letter from previous school & last exam result.
1 passport photo.

Family ticket will REIMBUST after submiting to HR the Family Visa which is stamped at airport imigrantion during entry.

Car Loan after probation & if only obtained the Driving Lisence (change to Intl Lisence could skid the driving school they said).

No leave within probation.

I tought this could help someone here. But sorry if this couldnt help you.
- Mr. Khan

Prepared for what ever comes next...
