Hello Expats: My first post I have a vehicle, and I go out to RAK for work, yeah still on a 30 day tourist visa. Can I reset my Visa by driving into Oman at the Wadi Bin Oman Checkpoint and driving right back in. It is only 18km from RAK.

Thanks

Big Steve from Balmer (Baltimore, Maryland we don't pronounce the T)

Hi Steve,

Ive never heard of Wadi Bin. Do you mean Wadi Bih?

If so then unfortunately, no you cannot. Since 2008 this border crossing has been closed to everyone except UAE and Omani nationals.

You would have to drive to Al Qir, border crossing which is closest to you because you are living in Rak.

For everyone in Dubai, the closest border crossing that provides entry and exit stamps for non-GCC nationals is the Hatta border.

Yes I mean Wadi Bih I FAT-FINGERED it, I live in Dubai but travel to RAK Free Trade Zone daily thought about moving to RAK but there is not much there. So I could just as well drive to Hatta.

Thanks

Big Steve

Default How to join my husband (Egyptian citizen) working in Dubai on his visa (sponsorship)?

Hello to all who can help me to find out the useful information which can help me in my situation:
I am a woman from Ukraine, my husband is a citizen of Egypt. Our marriage certificate was issued in Egypt. For the Ukrainian law I am a single woman (we do not have our marriage certificate approved by Ukrainian legislation). Now my husband works in UAE (Dubai) and has a residence visa. I need the exact fresh information about how I can get a visa on husbands sponsorship to come to Dubai and live with my husband - all the exact details and procedure for making this visa for me. Please everybody who knows the fresh 2012 year rules and details mentioned above - kindly share this information with me on this forum.
Thanks in advance.

Has anyone that was in the 10 day grace period done a visa run in the last few days?

The soon-to-be mother-in-law was told that they'd scrapped the grace period, and is worried she'll get a fine. I suspect she's been told a pile of old tosh but thought I'd check. Ta much

You're brave sticking your number up for the world to see

Just got back, and I'm all done as I get my residency visa next month. No more runs for me thank Lordy.

If anyone finds this thread via Google, it was a load of old tosh... The 40 days is still going. And they only charged me 50Dhs this time, bargain!
