The EOS cheque gets released regardless of the status of your loan(fully paid or not), thats what happened to mine. The final salary payment, in my case, was not included to the EOS cheque because I wasn't able to acquire the clearance letter from the Bank to submit to EK, it takes about 30 days. So, I dumped it. I just stayed couple more days after my LDS, waited for the Final payment to get to my Bank account. Then, I withdraw everything and closed the account the same day. From LDS to flight out of DXB took me extra 4 days.

Few known cases that can delay your exit:
1. Late release of Passport from HR due to incomplete Leaving process requirements - issues with accommodation, settlements etc.( happened to someone I know)
2. Late release of Passport from HR due to VISA cancellation issues (lame reasons such as, cutoff period - passport was not picked up, misplaced etc) - happened to me.

Your EOS cheque will be given together with the Passport, supposedly on your LDS. And try to submit the passport for visa cancellation either Sunday or Monday.

Rumour has it that Harry was accepted at the Orange Airline.
Harry are you leaving us? We haven't seen you in awhile so you must be transitioning out of here.
Good luck.

Is it forbidden to say easyJet on PPRuNe? Are they another unmentionable? Why always this reference to a mysterious Orange airline.

Question....how long before your effective resignation date is your last flight? Is there any time off to do all of the last minute things like packing, and preparing to leave?

good evening!

if you deceide to take the cheque on your LDS and you rather take the converted money with you than the bank transfer,
do you have to declare the money when leaving UAE.
I know I have to declare it in Europe, if it is more than 10k€ and the same applies in Europe when you leave the EU, but not sure about UAE

thanks

Question:
I'm thinking to leave Emirates after 3 years and I've got 2 years bond left. Is there a way not to pay the remaining bond, besides doing a runner? ;-)
Thanks

3 days not 5

I was given three days as was my mate. However if you plan to have your last day of service on a Tuesday - then you have 5 days as they donít count the weekends ( ie you have Fri-Tue. Tuesday however will be all at EGHQ and banking etc. Get there as early as possible. Also remember the Emirates NBD at EGHQ closes relatively early if depositing your cash. If you want a no liabilities letter from Emirates NBD ( if your bank) you need to cancel your cc well in advance. They have two different letters - a no liabilities and one other that sounds the same- one means no loans etc - you can get this if cc cancelled late , the other only 30-60 days after cc cancellation- cannot remember- and it means no outstanding cc owing etc etc. . As we had no loans, EK did not require this letter- we just wanted it for back home although so far havenít needed it. We requested it on LDS and it took 3 weeks and they would not email it so had to have someone pick it up... in retrospect probably not worth the hassle.

Can the last salary and provident fund be deposited to your bank account or does it have to be a cheque?

It can be deposited directly by EK to an account in Dubai or overseas. Reading on this thread that can take anywhere from one week to six. I wasnít willing to take that chance and wanted to see my cash before I left Dubai soil. I donít think there have been any instances of the money not eventually being transferred but I wasnít keen on having to fight anyone to track down such a large sum of money .

I think at 3 years, EOSB = bond remaining.

Repatriating Funds

Pumpkin - itís been a few years since I left, but I distinctly recall being strongly advised to ensure that any funds arrived in my UK bank well before I arrived in order to avoid any potential tax implications. Fortunately this advice was largely academic for me because I was moving my funds and myself to another country, but it may be something you should look into to avoid any nasty surprises. Maybe some other leavers could comment further. I believe similar cautions apply to returning to the US. A secondary consideration involves the possible implications of arriving in any country these days with large amounts of cash due to Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism rules.
Best of luck.

i will do the same, i think.
did you take the cash back home and did you have to declare it leaving the UAE?

Just to clarify- I agree. I got the cheque, cashed it, and walked over to Al Rostamani and transferred it home. It took 4 working days to get there I think. Absolutely in most countries your cash needs to get there before you do( to avoid tax implications)- so I didnít want to ďrelyĒ on EK sorting out the transfer via the offshore managers as I had heard some people had to wait 6 weeks for their cash to show up. On another note- the days of having to carry a massive amount of cash to Al Rostamani etc are gone- I set up an account a month before I left and did a small trial transfer, then in my last day of service got the Ek cheque, deposited it my NBD account, then went to Al Rostamani and wrote a personal cheque to them for the entire amount- no problem.
