I WAS ON EMPLOYMENT VISA PREVIOUSLY, AND I WANT TO APPLY FOR TOURIST VISA, IS IT POSSIBLE?
Yes, it is possible. But we have to check the profession on your previous employment visa as it will affect your new Dubai Tourist Visa application. Low profession will encourage rejection.

No. You should go out/exit Dubai first, before we can make a new application for you.
