Identity and nationality: how to inquire about the UAE visa electronically
The process of visiting service centers or any of the channels for submitting an entry permit or visa application to the United Arab Emirates in order to inquire about the status of residence or inquire about a visa (visit or stay) in Abu Dhabi and other emirates may be cumbersome and time-consuming; therefore, the government has made this service available electronically through a set of official channels. When you apply for an entry permit or visa at one of the service centers, the service provider provides you with specific information, such as an application number and a reference number, so that you can independently check the validity of your domicile.
Federal Authority for Identity and Nationality
Through the channel platform from the federal authority for identity and citizenship, holders of entry permits and visas from Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al Khaimah, or Fujairah can track the status of their application and verify the information related to it, as well as inquire about their status of residence in the Northern Emirates and other Abu Dhabi.
Following these steps on the website of the federal authority for identity and citizenship is how the Emirates visa inquiry procedure is conducted.
