    Need advice on renting a room / apartment

    Applying from UAE !! Urgent Inquiry

    Just inform them that your work visa is ending soon and that you'll have a 1 month grace period. I don"t think it'll affect your eligibility because it is already implied that if you're planning to attend university/college in September 2019 then you'll be ending your contract with your employer...

    Timeline for Study Permit applicant from KSA/ Saudi Arabia

    Have you linked your application to your account on GCKey? They must've sent you a message there as well for additional documents. You're right, it could be medical. Nothing to worry about!

    Students for September 2019 intake

    I applied on 4th of April but its still stuck on Background Review. Did not give medical as it's not required. Processing time says 6weeks for KSA. Should I send in an Enquiry through the webform or email the visa office directly. Or both?

    Delay in Study Permit Visa in Abu Dhabi (Sharing my Experience)

    Kind of in a similar situation, nothing has been updated since I applied. Did your application get updated at the end when the decision was made or were their gradual updates on GCKey

    I'm not really sure about that but since your application will be over the current processing time on Thursday I think it'll be wise to open a webform and inquire about your status. Just my two cents on the situation

    Study Permit 2019.

    So basically your application was received on 4th of April and counting from that this will be your fifth week.
