LATEST VISA RULES: March 17
Ignore all rumours: "My friends mum said....", "Someone at my work told me...", "Ive just been on the phone to Dubai XYZ..."
The FACTS: Expats do not need to stay out of the country and re-enter after midnight
Expats do not need to stay out of the country for 24 hours. Expats do not need to wait until day 40 to exit. Take a trip with us and return same-day. Its simple, reliable and affordable.
Expats get 30 day multiple entry visas, not 40 day multiple entry visas. - Fact
Beyond the 30 days there is a 9 day grace period during which time visit visas can be renewed.
Visas are MULTIPLE entry now. Visas should be renewed between day 31 and day 39 only. Re-entering on day 30 or less will NOT generate a new visa.
Expats have upto 39 days (30+9) in the country, but if they exit and re-enter before the expiry of 30 days, their new entry stamp does not mean that they have a new visa, they will just be on the remaining period of 39 days.
If however expats re-enter the UAE after the expiry of the original 30 days, they will automatically receive a NEW 30 day visa with a 9 day grace period.
Travelling on day 40 or more will incur an overstay fine. This is 340AED for day 40 and 100AED for every day thereafter.
