Hi, I hope someone can help

This will be my first Visa run so have a few questions:

- what paper work do I need to take with me
- what does the process cost (I know I will have to also contributor to the run itself, petrol, care hire etc etc)
- Do you need to leave the UAE for a certain amount of time (5 mins, 5 hours etc)
- If I go with my friend who has a Dubai employment Visa will they have to complete the same paperwork?
- Is your visit Visa valid for a month or 4 weeks?
- Where is the usual Visa run location? how long does a return trip take?


Also I need to 'do' a run by the 29th is anyone going from JLT/Marina area?

Thanks, bit nervous at this is my first one

- what does the process cost (I know I will have to also contributor to the run itself, petrol, care hire etc etc) 50dhrs
- Do you need to leave the UAE for a certain amount of time (5 mins, 5 hours etc) Exit Dubai, Enter Oman, Exit Oman, Enter Dubai (you can basically enter and leave as soon as you want)
- If I go with my friend who has a Dubai employment Visa will they have to complete the same paperwork? Yes - and get 3 stamps
- Is your visit Visa valid for a month or 4 weeks? 30 days. (UK passport means you get a "grace period" of 10 days on top, thus 30+10=40 days)
- Where is the usual Visa run location? how long does a return trip take? 3 hour round trip on a good day. Just get in car and head for Oman/Hatta. It's a straight road. Follow the flags at unsigned roundabouts. It's pretty straight forwars. Don't go on a long weekend.


Also I need to 'do' a run by the 29th is anyone going from JLT/Marina area? Sorry, I did mine last on the 2nd. It's pretty straight forward.

Thanks, bit nervous at this is my first one
Next time I do it, I might make a little post about it. Including photos/things to look out for.

It's really not that scary/hard.

I have no idea where it was from. I found it on a forum and emailed the text to myself ages ago and just rewrote it based on actually doing the run myself. Sorry!

It was heavily changed in my own way. Unfortunately I no longer have my version as you have deleted it!

Rats? Where?? I didn't notice any rats. In fact, the place in Hatta is rather pretty for a government building/border cross.

Certainly no rats that I saw there last time when doing a run for friends. May I recommend Hatta Fort Hotel on the way back (at the roundabout) as a stop for lunch or refreshments. Very pleasant .The Thai beef salad is ace.

Is it definitely the 29th? Did you come by DXB?
If so, add the 10 day grace period if you're doing a hatta run.
