Abu Dhabi Family Visas - Are Utility Bills Mandatory?
Been in AD almost a month, I have my residence visa, my family are still on tourist visas.
Should get Emirates ID today after loads of "technical issues" which means I can get my chequebook and finally be able to settle my tenancy agreement and register it with Tawtheeq.
So all going well, I should soon be in a position to move into our apartment and apply for family visa for my family.
However, every guide I read online says I must also have the latest utility bill in addition to Tawtheeq-attested tenancy contract.
Considering the Tawtheeq process involves simultaneously registering you with ADDC for electricity connection, also providing a utility bill seems a bit redundant, plus it would mean having to wait at least another month before I can apply for family visa, having to pay for 3 x flights to do a visa run and my wife/child spending another month in the country without local medical insurance.
Anyone have any recent experiences with this and whether the utility bill in addition to all the other documentation (marriage/birth certs are all ready attested and translated where necessary) is absolutely mandatory?
