Final Approval

I finally got my FINAL APPROVAL. My mind and soul are having a mini-party right now and I can’t contain my happiness! It only took me four days to get my final approval which is relatively short compared to others who get to receive it ten (10) to fifteen days (15) after the ‘Golden Call’ especially when the Emirates HR requested for another additional medical requirements.

As for me, the real countdown starts today. I already submitted my dental certificate but I want to get all my vaccinations done before my DOJ.


✈︎ FAQ: What determines your Date of Joining?

“This would be the date when the employee checks in at the airport of his/her country of residence and commences his/her travel to Dubai (as agreed and arranged by the HR Co-ordinator) without any break or deviation en route. For locally recruited employees the contractual DOJ is the date when the employee reports for duty as specified in the permanent Contract of Employment, or as subsequently agreed to by the HR Coordinator with the line manager.” – HR

Once you receive your final approval, there will be an email with subject header ‘Advise to resign’ and here are some excerpts:

“We are pleased to inform you that we have obtained the final approval on your application. You may now tender your resignation so that you can join our organisation as early as possible.”

“If you are currently a student, working on a part-time basis or unemployed, you are not required to upload the service letter. Please inform the Recruitment coordinator of the same through “Submit a Query”.”

A week before your date of joining, the e-ticket and copy of your visa to enter the UAE will be uploaded on the candidate portal and you will be notified through email and Candidate Portal. Kindly continue to check the Candidate Portal frequently.”
