That cost that everyone asks what it is and no one is quite sure why we pay it… Well now we have the full explanation of what E Channel actually is and how it will work for you using our 2019 guide which if you continue reading will explain all.
E Channel is one of the technology upgrades to the system of visa processing in the UAE, this has been designed to reduce the time taken to issue visas and residence permits. The system has been implemented by the Ministry of Interior and actually designed and created by Tahaluf Al Emarat Technical Solutions.
Basically what this does is stops you having to go physically to the registration centre as everything is done online on the new system. The good news is this means less queues for you less waiting around and of course a smoother service not just for your initial registration but for renewals and other visa services.
Your company can in fact apply for this service (its required to process any visas anyway) online so again no visit required!
