I wish I knew about this website before the weekend. I just did the run for my sister and would have loved to split the cost with someone! I guess there is always next time

Even though the stamp will say 30 days you actually get 40 days as British passport holders are given a 10 day grace period.

You will obviously need your passport and there is a form available at the counter for completion.

Good luck!
Hiya

I seem to find a lot if contradicting information on the 10 days grace. My husband got his visit visa on 29 March and he will be leaving on 03rd May so he will be within the 10 days grace period. We are just wondering whether he'll have a fine or any hassle of the airport if we don't do a visa run or do we need to di a visa run to be on the safe side?

Hi

Just been on the visa run and one of the people had to pay 600aed for 5 day overstay. He had overstayed for 15 days. So if you overstay for no more than 10 days there's no fine and no problem at the border.

Hope this helps
