No-one js going to be able to answer this question as it's going to come down to your friend handing themselves in and then finding out. I just find it really hard to understand why your friend didn't take advantage of the recent amnesty....

The last amnesty expired on 3rd February.
During the publicity for the amnesty it was said that people who did not take up the amnesty would be jailed - so likely to still apply.
Apparently fine is 25 AED per day for overstay of residency visa - so for 18 months fine is around 13500 AED.
After jail and fine is paid - then deportation likely - ban probable.

Not really very good news - but above information is available on Gulf News website.

Cheers

Steve

I just learned the fallowing :

my friend did not complete the process of visa, it was issued as a temporary working visa within the given three months period and it was cancelled for no apparent reason. I heard from my friend that the company were already close not existence at all.

My question now is, where my friend could go now to settle the issue

On the UAE immigration or The (Friend) native country embassy to seek assistance and consultation?

Once they go to jail, it really depends on the person. A person I was familiar with had overstayd by years and years. Was rounded up in one of the sweeps of discovery ghetto and sent off to jail. After like three months, ??? they figured out he was never going to be able to pay anything so they wanted to deport him but he had to figure a way to pay for a plane ticket was the only catch. I think it took another two months before everyone got together the money and he was off to sri lanka with a lifetime ban.
