I think your question was answered at post 9 previously asked question! (http://www.pprune.org/engineers-technicians/452691-gcaa-air-law-exam.html)

Not completely true!
The GCAA will issue a temporary validation for a EASA B1/B2 requested by QA from an existing UAE MRO/Operator. But for a full GCAA licence you will need to pass the GCAA Air Law examinations.

www.gcaa.ae and navigate to e-regulations then CAR II Licensing Regulations. Navigate to CAR II Chapter 7 for Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers. Read CAR 66 (much like EASA 66). You'll also need to read CAAP 28 which you'll find under the e-regulations menu. Also read any IBs (Information Bulletins) found under the same menu.
You'll need to sit Module 10 Air Legislation but to be honest I'd try to get a type rating under EASA 66 and get a validation of that in the short-term and do Module 10 then (assuming you are working for a UAE employer?). Long and short of it is the GCAA management make up some rules by decree and in many cases don't follow the regulations or guidance they publish. Their Appendix I type-ratings are identical to EASA's up to a few EDs ago but they'll not include types that don't appear on the register so some type ratings aren't as published.
They are currently in a state of flux with the (late) inception of CAR 66 and running late with conversions; 90 days not uncommon. In my experience, licenses come back wrongly endorsed in most cases. The guys in the GCAA Licensing Dept are helpful but I think they're snowed under and under-resourced. They've held several industry briefings in the last few months and admit things haven't gone seamlessly. I think they'll get there...

Thank You for your Reply, yes i do work for Emirates but stationed at an out station, i was in DXB for last 5 days and i exactly found the same information regarding the conversion and the feeling i had was that, emirates is seriously thinking to get type endorsements on the easa part66 basic licenses for any capable guys who hold basic licenses and then get them converted.
