Hello Everybody,

I was really concerned so I went today to GDRFA at Al Jafallia and they told me that you get everytime new 90 days, so now I have until 21 of October (I arrived 24 of July). I understand it also different as it is stated in the agreement, but appearantly they handle it different (THANK GOD).

Best

My friend who has an EU passport is nearing his 90 days. He has called the immigration office twice and they have said each time that he has to leave for 90 days. For various reasons, he is flying somewhere before the 90 days is up and doesn't know if he can come back or not without waiting 90 days.

Has anyone actually done a border run or flown out and re entered with this EU passport thing?

Hi All,

I am British and arrived on 2nd July for work, my visa is in process but i am just wondering if this 10 day grace period is still in place? i have read back but there wasn't really any reply specifically confirming this a yes or a no.

I have arranged to do my 1st visa run tomorrow via work (we are in the dubai marina plaza) - i did have 4 of us doing it to split the cost but now there are only 2 - the fee was 500 AED so i am just looking to split that across the board, my work have told me they don't mind how many i bring with me to split the cost so if anyone does need to do one, please let me know on here /snip/

So if i do have a 10 day grace period i can hold out until 10 days after 2nd august and won't need to do the run tomorrow, if anyone could please confirm that would be great, cheers.

EDIT: Since posting this, one of my colleagues daughter is coming over on the 6th, he phoned immigration and they have confirmed to him that the visa will be a total of 40 days (30+10) - hooray!

Heard this regarding all Nationalities that get VOA. If you get 30 days and over stay, then you have to stay out 30 days. He doesn't mention the 10 day grace period. If you get 90 days and leave on the 90 th day, you have to stay out 90 days, otherwise, you can do a visa run.

The part about visas starts at 14:25. It's from DubaiEye Radio

Did a visa run for my son who is on a UK passport and gets 30-day visa on arrival. When we came back in to the UAE, I asked the chap at immigration who told is the visa was good for 40 days and he clarified to say that we had to renew by 22 September.

10 day grace period seems to be working just fine.
