Can I continue to process the fiance visa in Abu Dhabi embassy on a UAE visit visa?

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I get laid off from work due to redundancy on 19 Sep 2016 and did not consider taking the new job offer received from a different company as it would oblige me to serve a 2-year contract. My fiancé visa status was received by Abu Dhabi embassy on 15 September 2016 and i was under the impression that it would be completed 1-2 months. Then I came to know that Abu Dhabi embassy is very slow in processing the visas and would take several months. I can only extend my UAE residence visa till 19 November and I don't think it would be completed by then as till now I haven't heard from AUH US embassy.

Do you think it's okay to continue processing the Fiancé visa in UAE me being on a visit visa in case it takes beyond 19 nov?

Or shall I continue it in Philippines or yet find a job and just pay the penalties in case I wouldn't be able to serve the full term of the contract

Please help

:time: at what stage of the K1 are you? No, you would not be able to attend your interview under a tourist visa, only as a resident of the country.

Welcome to the forum.

If you haven't already, contact the interviewing embassy/consulate for more information.

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Hi, i think you can continue here since the embassy you have stated in your 129F petition is Abu Dhabi. If you want it to be transfered to Philippines i think thats another process for transfer. Pls email Abu dhaby embassy before scheduling your interview so they can advise you. Goodluck
