10 grace period for visit visas

28746 Views 23 Replies 13 Participants Last post by  twonao
My 30 day visit visa runs out on the 5th of March so my first visa run is imminent. I've heard there is a "10 day grace period" and I was wondering if anyone has recent personal experience of doing the visa run with an expired visa? If so, what happened? Did you have to pay a fine? Were you waved through?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all, sorry for bumping this thread but it seemed the most appropriate.

Does this 10 day grace period still exist? Might come in handy for me if it does as I am still waiting on getting my working visa :)
And how much could the fine potentially be if I just left it until day 37? (overstaying 7)

Sorry if this sounds stupid but what do you mean by 'count the days right?' :p
Ah right well day 30 of my visa is 3rd of November, so if I leave until the 7th I should bring 800AED for the fine alone just in case?
