  1. can i apply 3 months prior expired date? thanx

    • yes.

      due to personal reasons of unavailability or vacation planning you may apply for visa renewal in advance. additionally keep in mind that you cannot renew your cnia pass if your visa expires in less than 6 months.

  2. I tried to renew my family visa online through MOI site. Here required three documents 1. Lease contract 2. Salary certificate 3. Job/ work contract. But I have two documents from my company 1. Salary certificate 2. ADNOC housing letter only so how I can manage because I couldn’t move next step without downloading these three documents.
    If anyone applied online their self, pls shere complet process.

    • BK for your family visa, you are the sponsor. Sponsor will provide work contract copy.

      • Yes I am the sponsor of my family but I have only above mentioned two documents and here required are three so ADNOC housing letter can be use on both places I.e. Lease contract and job/work contract.
        This clarification I need.

  3. Company will provide 2018 housing letter (by request to Ruwais Housing Admin) and 2018 salary certificate (from your HR).
    The required work contract belongs to the sponsor. Since you are the sponsor you will provide your contract scan to immigration for your family visa application.
    Your work contract is with you since you started working for the company, maybe 2018 or 2017 or whatever year you signed the contract.

  4. Dear,

    With BR,

  5. ADNOC Ruwais Housing admin is open or closed? & how much it cost?
