Now I'm totally confused.
I have been receiving conflicting information, with regards to UK passport holders. The visa stamped in my passport states 30 Days. So I assumed I had to do a visa run, every 30 days?. Now someone else has told be that the visa is actually valid for 60 days? Can anyone clarify this.

Thanks in advance.

It's valid for 30 days, yes you do need to do a visa run every 30 days, they used to give 60 day visa's out, now the only way to get one is to extend your original 30 day visa by a further 30 days at the immigration place BUT it'll cost you AED600 or so, so you're better off doing a visa run.

If you're late the fine is AED200 for the first day and AED100 for each day thereafter.

Thanks Andy Capp,
I fear another flight to Qatar is imminent.
