drink and drive... Dubai CID clearance... New job Jul 29, 2015
Hi all,

Would look forward to responses from any who may be able to clarify/ help.
I've been working with one of the top 3 semi-government organizations in Dubai at a managerial post for almost 4 years now. I've recently been offered another job at an upcoming semi-government organization within Dubai.
Back in March 2013 I had a drink and drive case which I got away with after paying AED 20000. I also spent 3 full days in jail before the court hearing.

As of today, I've submitted all the requisite documents to my prospective employer for the CID/ Security Clearance. While my new employer is going to follow up on the clearance, I have 2 questions please:
1. In how long do you think I can expect the Security/ CID clearance to come through?
2. Will my previous D&D case play its part in the Clearance?

I really hope all goes well. The documents were submitted 2 days ago and my prospective employer wants me to join them as soon as I complete my Notice Period in my current organization. I just want to make sure that I get this job. Also, it will be very embarrassing and shameful on my part if the Clearance is rejected.

P.S - if it makes any difference, my nationality is Indian.

FDLXSU4 , Yes, I was fortunate to get the clearance in about 40 days and I am well in my 5th month in my new job - which is going really great! I can only thank God and the Dubai Govt. for the second opportunity that I have been provided with.
I honestly don't know what qualifies for the clearance, but it is a mere guess - I think things like a pending case, any past severe criminal offense like drugs, or previous deportation, blacklisting by previous employer etc is what they are looking for and which don't result in a clearance.
