UAE visa amnesty: ICA issues exit procedures

Visit-visa holders who have overstayed in the UAE and wish to benefit from the grace period for fines will have to report 48 hours before their departure in Dubai, the Federal Authority of Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has said. 

Those who have their visas expired before March 1 are exempt from all fines and other administrative restrictions. People with visit visas and residency visas expired before March 1 can avail of the exemptions, provided they exit the country before December 31. 

Visit visa holders with their visas expired before March 1, who travel out of Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah airports, need to reach the airport at least six hours before their departure time to avail of the amnesty programme. Those who travel through Dubai and Al Maktoum airports will have to report at the Dubai Civil Aviation Security Centre 48 hours before the departure time. 

Residence visa violators should book an air ticket with a departure date before December 31 and arrive at the airport with the ticket and passport four hours before the departure time. 

The authority also said that the violators who have dependents under their sponsorship should depart with their dependents.
