Who must cancel your residence visa
Normally, only the sponsor can cancel your residence visa. You cannot process the application on your own.
If a company decides to cancel an employment visa of its employee, it must first approach Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation with an application to cancel the employee’s labour contract and labour card. The employee must also sign this application. Then, the employer should apply to General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) for visa cancellation.
The company must also cancel the work permit. For this, it must submit a letter signed by the employee stating that he has already received all his wages and end of services benefits to Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation.
An individual sponsoring his/her spouse, children and other dependents must cancel the dependents’ visas first before he cancels his/her own.
Cancellation must be processed through the GDRFA that stamped the residence visa in the first place.
