I will be going on a visa run to Oman tomorrow morning if anyone is interested there are a few extra spots. I will check the posts around 6am and call anyone who is interested. We usually leave around 730 or 8 and get back around noon or so.

I have understood that "western" expats (from defined list of countries) benefit from 10 days grace period on their tourist visa.
It is the same grace period irrespective of how the tourist visa was acquired. After 10 days there is a daily penalty fee.
(Alas, no official web reference to confirm this)

For expat tourist visa it does not matter if you exit from a different point.
The frequent scenario is arriving by plane at Dubai airport (=entry visa), then doing a Hatta Visa Run by road (=exit & new entry visa).

Hope this helps...

Extending tourist visa via immigration costs > 600 AED, whilst the drive to Hatta can cost as little as 150 AED. The drive takes 4+ hours, with varied scenery along the route, versus queuing in a building... )

you have 10 days grace period only if your point of entry is Dubai, however you still can change your visa in hatta oman even if your point of entry is not Dubai but no grace period.

Your point being that the other Emirates do not grant an equivalent 10 day grace period?
My understanding is that Abu Dhabi also offers a similar grace period (although could not find an official web link for this)

You still obtain 10 days grace with Hatta as your entry point.
I confirmed this with the border official on my trip earlier this month.

Hi, I need to do a visa run also. I see that you leave in the morning. However I need to be at work for 11 am so dont think I will make it back in time for then.
Is there any chance that we could go today or tomorrow evening.

I am happy to contribute to costs. Let me know if it's possible. Thanks
