Good day! I have already submitted my passport copy, pictures and attested transcript of records to my employer in Abu Dhabi. My questions are:

1. How long is the processing time for the working visa/permit?

2. What are the chances for rejection in the application of working
visa/permit? I am a female Electrical Engineer and it is my first time to
travel and work in the UAE.

I am hoping to receive some helpful informations. Thank you very much.

Hi! Just like you it will be my first time to work in UAE. I've just submitted the required documents and currently waiting for the issuance of my working visa. From what I gathered, processing time for work visas usually has a turn around time of 25 working days from the time your sponsor (company) receives your official docs (but since its Ramadan Im not sure if this will still be the case). Chances of denial? Probably if you get negative results from the required medical exam (AIDS, Hepa B and C, Tubercolosis) or discrepancies in your submitted documents, other than those I think your chances are pretty much good considering that you have a sponsor to vouch for your employment.

Hope I was able to help with this info...goodluck!
