10 grace period for visit visas

28750 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.

Hello ... I am coming up to my 30th day on my visa on arrival in the UAE and I am also a UK citizen and passport holder... however!! ... Would I qualify for the 10+/- grace period as I came through Sharjah airport or would this rule apply for ONLY Dubai or is this for ALL the UAE Emirates???

Please reply soon I am on my 29th day here :(:(:(

You have to leave the country, not the Emirate, so you'll be fine. Plus you have the extra 10 days anyway.
