This was precisely what I told them, however they seem to be taking their sweet time coming to terms with that....

Hypothetical question, but once you have resigned is it possible to reverse it and take your resignation back?

Spam, I know someone who did due to a job offer not panning out, but he was a Purser and I believe it's at the discretion of the line manager. So like anything in EK, YMMV!

They may notice after a few months that the salary does not go to your account but the banks dont care as long as you make your payments.

I hope that helps.
as soon as my visa was cancelled, my bank account was frozen! No loan, no credit card... only my own money which I could not access! Jumping up and down for 2 days solid before I could withdraw my money, close the bank account and leave.

I have spoken to two pilots who had resigned and then had to retract their notice. As givemewings said, it is up to management to approve and for pilots then it should be up to CP-A or CP-B.

The general consensus seems to be that the company will have no issues, providing you have not 'rocked the boat', so to speak.

Well I can confirm that my account was not frozen as well. No problem at all. Only heard that from Emirates NBD...

Seems bank accounts are good until the date your UAE ID card would have expired . Several friends from different banks ran into problems when this happened . For one it was a bit over two years after his leaving .

My bank account was not frozen as well. Maybe because I settled everything before I told them that I resigned. But In anticipation, I withdrew most of the money before it gets locked in.

Received the last salary on the Last day of service and then closed the account from NBAD/First Arab Bank. No hassles experienced.

For info: As I was told the Bank accounts can be left Active(even w visa cancelled)but with a monthly maintaining balance. If it goes below the minimum, you'll get charged 25dhs per month. That's with First Arab Bank(NBAD).

2 months in the Premier Inn! Yikes!!!

Look for a ROVE hotel on the metro. A lot nicer and offer monthly rates from memory.

Whats the score with the final cheque? Is it made to cash or will it be in my name? I have had a no-liability letter from HSBC and they say that they will not close the account; is it wise to put the cheque through this account to clear and then send the money home via GCN, the risk of getting my provident fund locked into my bank account with no access to those funds is worrying me as I ha e heard of stories where the visa cancellation triggers a bank freeze. Advice greatly accepted here.

the cheque is Pay to cash in your name. I picked up my cheque from EOS counter and walked my way to NBD on the mezzanine level. Encashed it and sent it via Al Fardan money exchange, straight to my account back home.

if you settle your bills,loans and credit cards to the bank ahead of time, there should be no problem. Bank will not hold your money, you can take your deposits and close the account as you want.

I received the retention money 2 days short of 2 months from LDS. (Clearing period from Banks varies from each countries)

The overtime and flight pays should be included on the Final cheque. The only reason the last salary and flight pay doesnt get included, is when you still have a No liability letter to be cleared in the bank. In this case, EK will deposit the last salary to that bank. It will not be added to the retention pay. It is for you to withdraw the amount and close the account once you have cleared all your loans, and This was my case.

should you have No liabilities to the Bank, all your money will be in 1 cheque except the Retention money which is a security deposit for the repair and repaint job to your former accomodation.

So if you have no liabilities with the bank and are not in company accommodation there should be no Retention Money? Or do they keep some back "just in case"?

BigGeorgie,
i would think so too. The amount for the retention money is purely based on the assessment done by the accomodation evaluators. You can actually ask them to lower the amount and not overpriced you.(that was Jan.2018) but Maybe ek changed their policy by now.

Hi Flareflyer,

Some say its 30k but in reality its 44k thats what I got when I resigned for shipping my stuff back! Also for the last 3 days I was there Emirates had booked me a suite for me and my family but you have to ask them to do it.

If you have done less than 3 years of service, how does the provident fund work?

EOSB (21 days/year) + your provident fund contributions?

i believed we only get the higher, which is always the provident fund.
