What is the File Number?

The "UAE file number" is a number that gives you much information about the person and has also consisted of a visa number in it.

Where Can You Find the Visa Number?

You can find the visa number under the file number. All digits after the last forward slash (/) are UAE visa numbers.

The File Number Indicates?

You can find the file number below the UID number (Unified identification number). The file number contains three pieces of information, i.e. which emirates have issued visas, issuing year of the visa, visa number.

Format of File Number:

File number: 101/2003/3876546
  1.  “101” indicates the “code of the emirates that has issued the visa to visit the city.”
  • Here the codes are as follows
  • 101- Abu Dhabi
  • 201- Dubai
  • 301- Sharjah
  • 401- Ajman
Points need to be remembered while looking for a visa number
  • The issuing year of the visa will remain the same upon renewal, too, if the same person is sponsoring the person for a more extended period.
  • The issuing year of the visa will be changed only if the person’s visa got cancelled for any reason or has applied for a new UAE visa

2. “2876546” indicates the “Visa number.”

  • Under the visa number, lots of information is hidden.
  • The visa number is also known as the “resident number of the resident.”
  • If the visa number starts with “3”, it indicates that you have applied for a family UAE visa sponsored by your husband, wife, father, or mother.
  • If the visa number starts with “2”, it indicates that you have applied for an employment visa that a UAE-registered company issues.
  • In visa number, there is one exception for those visas issued for Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. There will be a forward slash (/) after the starting digit (i.e. 2 or 3).


Reason for Putting Forward a Slash in Visa Number:

The reason for putting forward slash is to gain attention whether the person is on an employment uae visa, family visa, for tourism or as a medical permit.
