All UAE visa fines have been waived

Visa violators are handed over heavy penalties under normal circumstances.

Dubai: All visa violators will be exempt from fines thanks to a new order by the President of the UAE, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, an official said on Wednesday.

People with entry or residency permits that expired before March 1, 2020, will not have to pay fines, it was announced in a media briefing.


Brigadier Khamis Al Kaabi, spokesperson of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, added that the presidential order includes full waiver of fines for people with expired entry or residency permits willing to leave the country after May 18 – this grace period will last for another three months.

“The order includes waiver of fines on expired Emirates ID and work permits,” Brig Al Kaabi said.

Al Kaabi added that the decision will not prevent the beneficiary from returning to the country when he or she meets the necessary conditions.

Brigadier Al Kaabi also said:”We urge the public to use the smart platform of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship to get the services they need.”
