Security Clearance in UAE

Earned points :6

Dear Friends,

Can someone please help me in this matter.

Currently I am working in UAE. I have received an offer from one of the government firm in UAE through consultancy. In order to process the security clearance part, consultant is asking me to cancel the current visa. Then only they can start the SC part it seems.

Does it (cancellation of current job visa) really required for security clearance? or I can cancel the visa once the result is announced. In case if I fail security clearance, I will end up with no job. Please suggest.

Thanks
Mi

Hi Mi,

I have given my documents for SC in Abu Dhabi. But my company didn't ask me to cancel my current visa. Not sure if it depends on the Emirate.

Thanks

Hi Ryan,

Thanks for your time and consideration.

I think same rule applies to all emirates (UAE). I have submitted all required documents for verification and have not received formal offer from future employer. It was just a mail communication about the confirmation.

I hope they will provide the offer after the SC or have you received the offer already?. Please suggest.

Thanks
MI

Hi MI,

My company gave me an offer and in that they are mentioned not to resign from my current employment till they advice so. SC is a time consuming process and I have heard stories about it getting rejected for no reasons.

It sounds a bit risky to cancel your visa without having a offer letter in hand. I guess you will have to resign from your current job for you to cancel the visa. My suggestion would be to get in touch with the HR of your new organization (If possible in person) and get a clarity on this.

Please let me know the status.

Thanks

Hi Ryan,

Thanks

For me, their requirement looks strange, I have submitted my documents for SC. May be, my point of contact in the firm does not have much experience regarding this matter or a policy by that organization itself.

Thanks for your time and all the best. I will keep you posted about the status.

Hi Prit,

I am in the same boat, got the offer letter but waiting for the security clearance for the last 4 months.

This wait is endless and no body has any clue on the process, what do they check, and how long does it take.

The wait is really frustrating...but the good thing is atleast you have not resigned from your current company yet.

Abu Dhabi Security Clearance process.

pmsm4488's picture

Dear All,

This process is on hold because of UAE government putting more pressure on Local companies to recruit UAE nationality only. They are still in the discussion phase. So I really think it will be so longer as compare to earlier. Only those people might be safe who got atleast offer letter from Govt.companies.

So best luck. lets see when the wait will over.
