The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) has emphasised on the timely renewal of the establishment card otherwise a fine of Dh100 will be imposed every month.
The establishment card also commonly known as CEC or company establishment card and CIC or company immigration card. It carries all the information about a company; company name, card number, and expiry date.
The card is used in private sector as well as the free zone and companies registered in both sectors are advised to have their cards renewed to avoid further complications.
This information was posted on GDRFA’s official Twitter account, which read:
Avoid a Dh100 fine for not renewing your establishment card.
In addition to that, GDFRA’s website lists that the applications are processed in one day and also mentions all the required documents.
100 درهم شهرياً غرامة كان يمكنك تجنبها إذا قمت بتجديد بطاقة المنشأة.
