I am confused right now, i went for vacation due to some emergency issues in the Philippines. Same time as my visa is under process for its renewal. I went home without my employment visa being stamped on my passport. My employer went to the Phil. Consulare in Dubai and was asked to pay the amount of AED 2,200 for them to attest my papers in the UAE as they said it is for the agency fee as my case was considered as direct hiring. Since the amount is a bit too much, my employer is not willing to pay for it. Instead, they gave me an option in which i dont know if its really possible to do. Since my only problem is going out of the Philippines, they told me to just book a trip going to Hongkong as a tourist with a return ticket, then from Hongkong I can book a trip from Hongkong to Dubai as there is no problem with that as I have my original employment visa with me in my hand.
I just want to know if there is someone from here who had experienced the same scenario? Please help me as I need to go back to Dubai soon... Really appreciate an urgent reply.
Thank u so much!!!
