  • 2. Make use of the Days Calculator Days Between Two Dates and tick the ‘Include end date in calculation’ box. 1 day will be added as UAE immigration counts your date of entry into the country too
  • 3. Use the UAE Immigration’s file validity checking systems to confirm your last day of stay after you have entered the country.
  • 4. Request your visa provider to send you screenshots from the immigration system to confirm your last day of stay in UAE.
  • 5. Get to know your visa type and read the Type of visas in UAE for a better understanding of grace periods and their availability.

Fines During Corona-virus

Any UAE visit visa holders waiting for an announcement for a stay extension for the individuals unable to leave UAE due to airport closures and flight cancellations there won't be any overstaying fines charged. The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship had made a statement on March 23, 2020 that such individuals will be able to extend their stay in the country until situations improve. Source : Khaleej Time

Modifying visa status – Status change

Under the Ministerial Resolution No. 377 of 2014 , visa holders of all types can modify the status of their entry while staying in the country if they wish to get a residency visa. A payment of 550 to 650 AED and compliance to certain requirements and conditions have to be met for successfully modifying visa status into residency visa. However, the applicant must ensure to perform this step before his current visa expires to avoid any fines being charged.

Is it criminal?

In UK, overstaying without a valid reason is a criminal offence under section 24 of the Immigration Act 1971 . In UAE, there is no law that says overstaying a visitor's visa or expired residence visa is a criminal offence. Most of the visit visa holders and cancelled residence visa holders overstay due to reasons like flight cancellations (Now due to corona), delays in processing new visa or employment visa. In most cases the average period of overstaying is between 5 to 15 days. In certain cases, Asian visitors have been scammed into believing that their visit visa is an employment visa resulting in them overstaying for many months. In such an instance, it is regarded as a criminal offence and the individual will be deported upon getting caught. As UAE practices many humanitarian acts, once every one or two years, The UAE visa amnesty requests all individuals who are overstaying to exit the country and waive off their overstaying fines.

Overstaying affect my re-entry?

We have heard news that overstaying for more than 1 to 2 months could affect any prospective employment opportunities. There are no laws confirmed about how overstaying will affect a visitor’s or resident’s next re-entry. In our experience some individuals who had overstayed and re applied for a new visa were approved while some were rejected. This decision is solely reliant on the Immigration departments’ security team.

How to Calculate Overstay Fines in UAE: Tourist, Visit, and Residence Visas

Main Points

Calculate Overstay Fine for UAE Visa:

Overstay fines apply to any foreigner on tourist/visit visa or residence visa.  The overstay fine for both categories are different.

In a recent development, the grace period for visit visas issued in Dubai has been eliminated, according to information provided by travel agents. Previously, visitors on visit visas in Dubai were granted a 10-day grace period after the visa’s expiration to exit the country. However, starting from May 15, 2023, this grace period no longer applies, and visitors must now leave the country before their visas expire to avoid overstay fines.

The duration of stay for visit visas, which can be either 30 days or 60 days depending on the type of visa, is now strictly enforced from the date of entry. Fines for overstaying are calculated immediately after the visa expires.

Previously, the grace period was automatically added to the visa’s duration upon entry into the country. However, this grace period is no longer included, and visitors must depart before the visa’s last day. Travel agents now advise visitors to be aware of their visa’s validity and ensure timely departure to avoid penalties.

Here is the simple calculator to check your overstay fine for visit/tourist or residence visa.

How to calculate overstay fine for uae visit or tourist visa.

If a tourist or a visitor overstays beyond the expiry of the visa period, you will start to incur fines, that gradually increase as the overstay increases:

  • AED 200 for the first day of overstay
  • AED 50 each consecutive day
  • AED 100, as service fees.

Total Fine for overstaying on visit visa or tourist visa= AED 200 for the first day + AED 50 * consequent days of overstay + AED 100 service fee

How to calculate overstay fine for UAE residence visa?

In the case if you are on a UAE residence visa or on employment visa and your visa is cancelled or expired you have 30 days’ grace period after visa expiry or cancellation to either amend their status and get another residence visa or leave the country. During the grace period of 30 days you will not incur any fines.

If you overstay after the grace period, you will be fined with

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

Total Fine for overstaying on residence visa= AED 125 for the first day + AED 50 * number of days up to six months + AED 50 * number of days from six months to a year + AED 100 * consequent days.

Where can you pay the overstay visa fine?

In the past, travel agents were responsible for reporting overstayers and facing penalties on their behalf. However, under the new regulations, visitors will have to pay fines themselves before leaving the country. Overstaying a visit visa is considered a serious offense and can result in travelers being stopped at immigration counters in airports.

Overstay fines for each day of exceeding the visa’s validity period are set at Dh50, along with additional charges and exit permits.

Visitors who have overstayed their visas can pay the fines online through the Federal Authority For Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security website before heading to the airport. Alternatively, they can pay the fines in person at the airport’s immigration counter.

It is crucial for visitors to stay informed about their visa’s expiry date and ensure they depart the country before the visa expires to avoid any complications or penalties.

UAE overstaying fees reduces for visitors, increases for residents

  • Environment

Fees cut for obtaining work visas too

Stock Amer UAE Visa

Abu Dhabi: The UAE has cut overstaying fees by half with tourist and visit visa holders overstaying in the country having to pay Dh50 a day, instead of Dh100.

The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security has standardised the overstaying fines in the country. According to the new rules introduced as part the sweeping visa reforms announced last month, overstaying fees have been reduced and standardised at Dh50. Also, those overstaying on a residency visa will have to pay a double fine for each day (Dh50 per day instead of Dh25).

Typing offices across the UAE have confirmed the new changes and said they have identified three major amendments in the updated visa system approved by the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs, and Port Security.

According to Tas’heel offices, the Federal Authority for Identity and Nationality, Customs, and Port Security began implementing a mechanism standardising the overstaying fees for tourist and visit visa violators.

Typing offices also confirmed that there is a Dh50 reduction in the fees for obtaining a new work visa, from Dh304 to Dh254.

Previously, the penalty was calculated depending on the kind of visa that had expired, but the new system unified the amount of overstay fines to Dh50 per day for any type of visa violator.

According to information received by the typing centres, overstay fines can be paid either by visiting customer happiness centres or online through the authority’s website and smart application.

They clarified that extra days spent while requesting documents or updating information will be included in the overstay period. If an application to renew the visa is started but the correct documents are not uploaded within 30 days, or the wrong documents are uploaded more than three times, the application gets automatically cancelled and a new one must be filed.

Under the new visa scheme, residency visa holders have a six-month grace period to either leave the country or change their status once the permit has either been cancelled or expired. After six months, it is illegal to stay in the UAE, and an arrest can be made.

For expired visit visas, offenders can be arrested after 30 days without a visa renewal where inspection campaigns are regularly carried out to catch offenders.

On October 3, 2022:

The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Ports Security introduced new rules and procedures as part of the New Visa Scheme for the UAE, coinciding with the official launch of the system.

Holidaymakers can stay for 60 days at a time

The new UAE visa rules that came into effect on October 3 allow holidaymakers to stay for 60 days at a time.

The decision to make all entry visas valid for 60 days from the date of issue ― - double the previous allowance -― is one of a series of visa changes that were approved by the Cabinet in April 2022.

Previously, there were no specific visas for tourists and those wishing to visit the UAE applied for 30-day, 60-day or 90-day visit visas.

The one, two and three-month entry permits are still available on a new visa, but mainly for people wishing to visit friends or relatives in the country, which requires documentary evidence proving the relationship and reasons for the visit.

All entry visas are available for single or multiple entry and can be renewed for a further 60 days.

Tourists who stay beyond the validity of their visa will pay a reduced fine of Dh50 per day instead of Dh100, authorities have said.

However, if found to be overstaying when on a residency permit the penalty has risen, from Dh25 a day to Dh50.

The changes have been in force since the new UAE entry and residence visa rules came into effect on October 3.

Previously, the penalty was calculated depending on the kind of visa that had expired.

“The new system unified the amount of overstay fines to Dh50 per day for any type of visa violator,” said a spokesperson from the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security.

“The overstay fine payment can be paid either by visiting happiness centres or online through the authority website and smart application.”

Any days spent requesting documents or updating information are included in the number of days accumulating the fine.

If an application to renew the visa is started but the correct documents are not uploaded within 30 days, or the wrong documents are uploaded more than three times, the application is cancelled and a new one must be started.

Residency visa holders have a six-month grace period to either leave the country or change their status once the permit has either been cancelled or expired. Beyond this it becomes a crime to stay in the UAE and an arrest can be made.

For expired visit visas, the offender can be arrested after 30 days without a visa renewal. Inspection campaigns are regularly carried out to catch offenders.

The new UAE visa rules that came into effect last month allow holidaymakers to stay for 60 days at a time.

The decision to make all entry visas valid for 60 days from the date of issue ― double the previous allowance ― is one of a series of visa changes approved by the Cabinet in April.

Previously, there was no specific visa for tourists and those wishing to visit the UAE applied for 30-day, 60-day or 90-day visit visas.

The one, two and three-month entry permits are still available on a new visa, but mainly for people wishing to visit friends or relatives in the country, which requires documentary evidence proving the relationship and reasons for the visit.

All entry visas are available for single or multiple entry and can be renewed for a further 60 days.

The UAE has tightened visa-related regulations – from visit visa holders being urged to book their roundtrip tickets on the same airline to carrying Dh3,000 cash.

Sometimes, when a visitor or resident of the UAE finds themselves in hot water legally or has issues with immigration, they may get a travel ban issued against them. This could also happen if one has missed out on loan or credit card payments. If you think this is be a good idea to check if a travel ban has been imposed .

Stay up to date with the latest news. Follow KT on WhatsApp Channels .

If you do have one, here's how you can cancel your travel ban online:

1. Visit the website of the Ministry of Justice and log in using UAE Pass. You may need to register separately if you have not registered with the website previously.

2. Once you log in, look for 'Cancellation Request of Travel Ban Order'. There, you will be able to find a tab called 'Case Management'.

3. After you click on that tab, click on 'My Cases' to see the cases against you.

4. You can view the details of each case and 'request' for a cancellation on each case. You will be required to fill out a form and fill in your details at this step.

5. Finally, you may be required to make a payment on the basis of your case.

Additional information

According to the Ministry of Justice, this service could take up to five working days to process.

While filing the application, you could be required to provide documents that support your case for the cancellation of a travel ban.

A first-of-its-kind system in the UAE and the region instantly tracks all judicial enforcement decisions and cancels them after the required payment of dues.

Recently, the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department adopted a new system that tracks the payment status, and once the respondent has completed the payment, it cancels the original decision. After electronic approval, this is then forwarded to the relevant authorities.

In the case of travel bans being imposed due to non-payment, respondents can download a copy of the cancellation decision through the smart app. They can then proceed with travel procedures and show the soft copy if required.
