To cancel a domestic worker’s visa will require the sponsor’s original EID, and the passport, visa and EID copies of the housemaid.
The cancellation application is done via any Tadbeer office, the government fees will be 150 AED and the approval will be issued in 2/3 working days.
The housemaid will then have a maximum of 30 days in which to remain inside the UAE before exiting or changing status to a new visa under a new sponsor/company or moving on to a tourist visa.
We recommend to keep in contact with the maid until she has obtained her change of status or exited the country so as to avoid any possible liabilities on the previous sponsor.
