Holders of United Arab Emirates UAE visit visa that expired after March 1 must leave the country by August 10 or face fines for overstay.
The UAE earlier said it was cancelling the extension of visa validity that was given because of the pandemic that closed most international borders. Due to the lockdown temporary extensions were granted to those who couldn’t leave, but that extension has now expired.
The rule covers entry permits, visit visas and tourist visas that expired after March 1 2020. Holders of visas that expired before March 1 were asked to leave anytime between May 18 and Aug. 19 to avoid penalties for overstay.
Details about UAE visas can be accessed through the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship’s online services.
