Question about visa status + renting a flat

I will be moving from Abu Dhabi to Dubai next month. My visa is a residence visa sponsored by my employer. It won't be cancelled for another month or so but before it is cancelled I want to rent a flat in Dubai and get everything sorted out. I will be starting a new job in Dubai in April.

Is it possible to rent a flat, get DEWA set up, and do anything else flat-related I need to do (ejari?) while I'm on an AD visa?

Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have only ever lived in AD and this move came about very quickly. Thank you!

That's great, thank you for writing out the process.

Thanks. I just wasn't sure if my visa being sponsored by an employer in AD would cause any issues.

Or you can visit the link DEWA sends to your phone when you register the ejari and pay the deposit online. Convenient and hassle free.

Yes, you can. You shouldn't have any problems since Abu Dhabi is considered a part of the UAE.
