Comprehensive Emirates Cabin Crew Application Timeline

Before I wrap up and bid farewell to my ‘Application Process’ category, I would like to share my timeline below in full details starting from the day I applied. I divided it into “categories” to make it organised and less confusing for you. If you are currently on the waiting pool, please do not compare your timeline to me or to anyone since each and everyone have different cases; specific language requirement is an example. Moreover, please make sure to visit the Sitemap located right on the menu to view a rundown of my entire application process and for quicker link access as well.
