Frequently Asked Question
Q: I am a UAE resident under my wife’s sponsorship. I want to know whether changing my passport before its expiry date due to employment opportunities abroad will affect my UAE residence visa or not.
A: Carry both passports if visa is on expired one, you have to renew your passport in case its validity period is going to expire. If your passport has already expired and your residency visa was stamped on it, you have to carry the expired passport along with the new one or stamp a new visa on the new passport
