Visa Cancellation while on vacation Jan 11, 2011
Hi guys, I need some advice.
I am due for my vacation in a few days & have already bought an air ticket.
At the same time, I have secured a better job outside of UAE & GCC.
I intend to give my resignation to my current employer (a semi- government company) immediately they give me my passport for the vacation because its very frustrating to get the passport after resignation.

My new employer requires me to have my visa canceled before joining.
Can I serve my 1 month notice while on vacation?
Is it advisable to send my passport from my country to the current employer in Dubai for visa cancellation while am on vacation after the notice period?
Have been working here for 14 months and my contract is unlimited.

Any advice will be highly appreciated.

I'm not an expert, but it doesn't sound like a good idea to mail your passport from your country to Dubai for visa cancellation. If you get your passport back from the employer then that is the time to do everything yourself. As for serving out your notice period while on holiday, you'll just have to do it if you fear that your passport will not be returned to you if left with the company again after the vacation.
