IMPACT — MEDIUM
The Emirati government has ended its grace period policy for foreign nationals who overstay their visitor visa in Dubai.
Additional Information: Dubai is the last emirate to remove the 10-day overstay grace period. All visitor visas holders must leave the country or extend their visa to avoid overstay fines. This regulation does not affect nationalities eligible for 30- or 90-day visas on arrival.
BAL Analysis: The Emirati government ended the 10-day overstay grace period for visitor visas in Dubai to align its policies with the rest of the country. Visitor visa holders who need to stay in the country beyond their visa’s validity should apply for an extension to avoid fines and complications.
