Yesterday afternoon we finally got the phone call that I am now a resident (hooray),the kids became residents about a week ago but they were still waiting on my medical results which were held up due to all the recent public holidays for Eid.
Of course to make it more fun, once you become a resident you can no longer drive on an international license- it is actually illegal to drive from where you get the residency paperwork to the building where you swap your license over.
So last night we headed up to the licensing department, official paperwork in hand- including my letter from Clint allowing me to get a license (no I am not kidding!). It was a fairly quick process and 30mins later we were out the door with my brand new UAE drivers license!
Another piece of paperwork ticked off the list!
