Fourth Week After the Final Interview

Today, four of my friends got the UM’s at exactly 16:10, Tokyo local time (11:10 in Dubai). I am so scared of receiving one. Only God knows how much I wanted this… I’ve been dreaming of this job since I was a kid. Hope I’ll get the OH mail soon!

    Hi there. Your blog is really helpful! And I have sth to ask you, I’ve had FI the end of Jan 2016. But My status has been AR since my FI. I’m actually waiting for rejection email… :/ This week is the 4th week after FI and NO updated status and no email. Are u sure that EK sends UM on 4th week? as I know after 5 week… This waiting is driving me crazy 😦


    • Hello there, Jin! There is really no concrete answer to this since Emirates gets pretty unpredictable sometimes. I am just talking based on my experience. If I may ask, did someone in your group received any news? If someone from your group gets a UM and you didn’t, most likely you’re successful! But once again, there is no four weeks UM rule. It really depends on person to person.

      Thanks for ur kind reply :-]
      yes right! there is no UM rule..! but I’d like to get UM quickly so that I can concentrate to prepare next interview after 6 months…haha……….
      My group is 12 people and 4 of them have got GC or OH within 2 weeks. The others, 8 people, haven’t got anything from EK for 4 weeks. I’ve heard It wouldn’t be a good sign staying same status.


    • It’s too early to say you’re going to get UM. Just keep your fingers crossed for it. And by the way, you are entering your fifth week now I guess, so best of luck! If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I am wishing you all the best!

    • Hello there, Rinchan! It is very normal that you are feeling this way cos I felt the same way too. But anyway, just hang in there just a little bit more, it will change soon! I wish you all the best! Please drop by when anything comes up!

    hey! I went for my FI on the 20th April and it has been 3 weeks but my status still under accepting job submission. Does that means that most likely I will get rejected? Thank you for your time.

    HI, i had a final interview around may 28th and my status changed to IC on may 31th.
    but the thing is that status remained(IC) same but only date was updated again on Jun 6th
    this freaked me out….. i dont know any contact numbers of people who had a final with me
    so i have no idea what is going on.

    i am so nervous and can’t go to sleep:(
    do you have any idea of this situation?

    Hi Ryu,

    Do you know if they send all the rejection emails out at the same time, or do they just do it as they review each file? It’s now been 5 weeks since my FI and I know one girl got her rejection email about 2 days ago, one girls status is under review and mine and another girls status is still “application received”. Such a stressful time!

    Thanks so much,
