UAE announces One-Month Extension for expired visit visas

Vastavam web: The UAE Federal Authority of Identity and Citizenship (ICA) made an announcement last night, on August 10, which could provide some relief for visitors in the UAE. Previously, if your visa expired after March 1 you would have had until August 10 to leave the country, pay for an extension or risk overstay fines. However this deadline has now been given a one-month grace period from August 11, extending to September 11. The decision is not applicable for those with visit visas that expired before March 1. The ICA has urged visitors to exit the country within the stipulated deadline.
