      ASalamoAlaikom,

      I have some queries for people on this forum who have UAE resident VISA.

      I have heard that if you have a UAE/Dubai resident VISA, you can get VISA on arrival for most GCC member nations , is that true ?

      Secondly, for getting UAE resident VISA besides employment related requirements, are there any requirements to have a lease or rented accomodation on your name ?

      Thank in Advance

      Yes, you can travel to any GCC country if you have residence within any other GCC country and the job title in your work visa says that you are a Manager.

      The exception to this is Saudi Arabia where you will need a visa regardless. You will also need to have your residency valid in your work country for a minimum of 3 months remaining and the remaining validity of your passport has to be at least 6 months.

      ^ hi Umer Salam

      Is that really true that if you have Manager on your visa you can enter any GCC country and pay on arrival?

      I am asking coz previously i was told by someone that i need visa even for Qatar and bahrain that time i didnt have Manager title on my visa. But lately i have renewed my residency visa and got my titled changed to Manager. does it mean that i do not need to acquire visa before travel and i can pay on arrival?

      Yes you can. However Qatar has announced some change to their visa rules. These changes have not been implemented yet, but are expected to be in effect in the next few weeks. And when they are, they will no longer issue visas on arrival for GCC residents.

      Bahrain, Oman, UAE and Kuwait do issue visas on arrival for GCC residents (if you have the "Manager" title).

      Umer & FairyTale, many thanks for your responses, it has been very helpful.
      Do you know is it mandatory to have some lease or rent a house in your name for resident VISA or just an employment from a UAE firm is sufficient for the VISA. The scenario for which I am considering this option is to live & work here in Pakistan but get employment from our UAE office, so that I have greater travel flexibility within the GCC nations

      You cannot get a residence visa by renting a house in your name. In fact, it's the other way around: You need a valid residence visa before you can rent in the UAE. That's probably true for all GCC countries.

      Previously you could get a residence visa by BUYING a freehold property in the UAE. However that has now been restricted as well.

      So the only option to get a residence visa is, to be employed in the UAE. Legally it is not allowed to be a UAE employement visa, while actually being employed elsewhere. Having said that: Some people do that anyway.

      And what you also have to be careful about: If you spend more than 6 months outside the UAE, your residence visa will get canceled automatically. And you might even get black listed for not properly canceling your visa.
