Those with expired UAE visit visa must go to checking centres 48 hours before flight


The UAE authorities have recently announced that all illegal residents whose visa expired before March 1 just need passport and airline ticket so their visa fines can be waived as they exit the host country.

The government affirmed that both residence and visit visa violators can benefit from the amnesty program. Violators can leave the country before August 18. They will also be exempt from getting banned the country. UAE assured them that they can still re-enter the country whenever they want to.

Those with expired residence visa just need to go to the airports with their passports and fly to their home countries without paying fines.

However, for people with expired entry permits (visit or tourist visas), they need to arrive in the airport at least six hours before their flight to benefit from the waiver.

Waiver fee for expired entry permits

According to a Gulf News report, the waiver procedure for expired entry permits change depending on where the passenger is travelling from.

Those person with expired entry permit need to go to airports six hours earlier before the departure time if they’re travelling from Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah airports.

However, if the person with expired entry permits travels from Dubai, then he or she needs to go to checking centre 48 hours of two days before the departing time.

Checking centres in Dubai are in Al Qusais Police Station, Civil Aviation Security Centre and deportation centre near Terminal 2.
