The Visa Run thread
 
This thread is for UAE expats who have questions about visa runs. Expats going on visa runs and looking for other expats to join to split costs evenly can also use this thead to announce trips.

Rules:

1. DO NOT POST YOUR CONTACT DETAILS FOR EVERYONE TO SEE! This includes names, phone numbers and email addresses. Your details will get deleted and you will get an infraction too. This is for your own safety. Use the private message facility instead.

2. Use this thread at your own risk. Stay safe and be careful who you are joining or letting join you for a visa run.

3. This thread is not for people to make money out of visa runs. You are expected to disclose the full cost of the trip in advance and split the costs evenly.

4. Do not use this thread to do business. Private drivers or individuals offering visa runs and people touting for business in general will get an immediate ban from the forum as per the forum rules.

5. Only regular forum members are allowed to post here (those with 5 USEFUL posts or more).

I'm looking at going on the 16th, I know a private driver and it'll cost 100 each if we get 3 people, and 150 if just 2.
Let me know if you're interested.

Hey Evenstar and Bluburd - shame I missed you guys today! I also need to do a visa run, am planning on going this weekend (20th or 21st).

Evenstar - could you give me the number of the private driver you know?

Anyone else interested in going and splitting the bill with me?

Cheers, that would be great.

Just so I know what to look forward to, how long did it take you?
And did you go with Evenstar's private driver or did you drive yourself?

Bluburd 16th January 2012 12:59 PM

No I rented a car, so I drove and we split the costs.

I left Dubai down town area about the return journey took about 4 hours.

Took about 1hr 45mins out there 30mins thru the check points etc and 1hr 45mins back.

Not bad. It was my first

Where did you rent the car?
Or do you know the name of a private driver - I know Evenstar mentioned one?

Cheers

Don't know about the private driver, evenstar ended up coming with me.

I rented from Thrifty . Offices all over the place-
