FYI most of the expats that have an IAA issued EASA ATPL, just keep a restricted type rating endorsed in their licence, rather than a trip to the sim being required for an unrestricted type rating. The restricted rating for a pilot based in the UAE (for example) will be valid for A6 registered aircraft only. It might seem a bit bizarre but it is a far cheaper way to restart the 7 year countdown before you need to start worrying about resitting some of the ATPL exams again.

Err, I thought that once you've 'unfrozen' your ATPL you don't need to worry about the 7 years validity? Damn, time to review some ATPL Air Law

From Part-FCL page 801

FCL.625 IR — Validity, revalidation and renewal

(d) If the IR has not been revalidated or renewed within the preceding 7 years, the holder will be required to pass again the IR theoretical knowledge examination and skill test.

However, you are exempt from needing to do anything at all if you hold a UK issued EASA ATPL, as the Brits implemented a derogation in 2013 to this policy. If you don't have a UK issued EASA licence then this may be a loophole worth exploring but perhaps best to wait until after Brexit and see how cordial the relationship is between the UK and EASA.
