  • AED 200 for the first day of overstay
  • AED 100 each consecutive day
  • AED 100, as service fee

For UAE residents, they will gave 30 days’ grace period after visa expiry. Fines do not apply on grace period. If a resident overstays his visa, he will be fined with the following:

  • AED 125 for the first day
  • AED 25 for each subsequent day
  • AED 50 per day after six months of overstaying
  • AED 100 per day after one year of overstaying
