Working abroad could be the best way to earn money because overseas jobs can give you higher salary as compared to your local job.

Sadly, time will eventually come that you may need to go back home for good.  Overseas Filipino workers (OFW) who are planning to return to the Philippines for good must first surrender your Emirates ID before leaving the UAE.  Advertisement        Sponsored Links     The Emirates ID will be handed over by the General Directorate for Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) to Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC), which had issued the card.  GDRFA said that “No residency visa will be canceled without the ID cards. Canceling the visa, for the purpose of leaving the country forever or for the purpose of changing jobs, requires [handing over] the ID cards.”    To cancel it online, go to the official MOI website at https://www.moi.gov.ae/en/eservices/eservice.32.aspx and proceed with the application for residency cancellation.       You can also do it personally by following these 3 steps:    Step 1 Once you have formally resigned from your job, ensure that you confirm your settlement with your employer. Be sure you know exactly what is owed to you.  Do not sign any statement of confirmed settlement until you've actually received your payments including gratuity, repatriations expenses or airfare, and other agreed upon benefits.  Step 2 —If you're working, the sponsor/company should start the visa cancellation by submitting required documents to the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation, from where a clearance statement will be issued. —Visit a typing office, of which there are hundreds located all over the UAE.  —Carry documents including copies of your sponsor's passport and his/her visa page copy, your original passport, and Emirates ID card, MOHRE clearance statement etc. —Tell the typing office that you wish to cancel yours or your dependent’s visas (theirs first if yours is getting canceled); this will cost up to Dh110. The sponsor should bear this cost for you, while you bear the cost for your sponsored dependents. —They will prepare the application within five minutes. Both you and the sponsor will have to sign the application, as well as have it stamped by the typing office (and your sponsor if he/she is your employer).  Important note: At the bottom of the cancellation application, you will be signing to confirm that you have received your final settlement.  Do not sign the application until you have in fact received your gratuity payment or any other outstanding amounts.  This includes your airfare. Sadly, there are some employers who may try to cheat you out of some of it.  Step 3 —Once the cancellation application has been signed by both yourself and the sponsor, you must visit the General Directorate of Residence and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA); see directions below. The typing office could also help you get started on the process online.  —Cancellation should ideally be processed through the GDRFA that stamped the residence visa in the first place.  —You must have with you a copy of the sponsor’s passport and visa page, as well as your original passport and Emirates ID card. Your Emirates ID card will be taken from you, and your passport will be stamped and returned. You now have 30 days to exit the UAE. —If you are simply changing jobs and remaining in the UAE, then you must hand over the signed cancellation application, as well as your passport to your new employer in order to get your new visa stamped in your passport. —Your passport should be returned to you in about two weeks' time after your passport has been stamped. According to UAE regulations, it is illegal for an employer to hold on to your passport after the visa has been stamped on it.
