A friend wanted me to post this. He’s trying to get together a group who invested in Goldcrest Dreams in Emirates City, Ajman. See below for more information. By the way, you can contact him by sending him an email at zaheed.dokadia (please remove the spaces).

I would like to know if anyone  or someone you know has invested in Goldcrest Dreams 1 project at Emirates City, Ajman?

I ask this because recently I was informed of the delay in hand-over of the property hence I would like to check with Star Giga (the property developer) of my options and doing it as a group helps.

One option (as per the contract) is to seek a refund with 1% interest. The other option could be to ask for a discount which is where having a bigger group will help. Please do let me know so we can work on an action plan together.

Thousands of Filipinos are stranded in Oman and Iran due to problems in the new policy on the issuance of visas in United Arab Emirates (UAE).

The new regulation that was implemented last July 29, directs previous visit visa holders to reapply as tourists as visit visas will no longer be renewed. This led to the rejection of thousands of visa applications from the Filipinos. Most have been stranded in their hotel rooms for more than a month.

The Philippine embassies in Muscat, Tehran, and Abu Dhabi and the consulate general in Dubai were ordered to help the stranded Filipinos.

Meanwhile, the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) on Friday said it would ask the government of UAE for leniency in the case of our stranded “kababayans” and that a team from the Philippine Embassy in Dubai would meet with the stranded OFWs at the border to check their condition.
