Default Visit Visa conversion to Residence Visa

Hello,
Please advise me if it is possible to convert my Visit Visa to Residence Visa in Dubai, without leaving and re-entering Dubai? If possible, then is there a fine to be paid?

Thanks.

When I gave my passport in to get my residency visa they simply cancelled the visit visa on the passport and added the residency visa.

No, you don't need to leave the country anymore to change your visa status.

When I got this done for my wife (she didn't leave the country) there was just a fee to be paid. I don't remember now, but I think it was between 200-500 Dhs
