Many visitors unintentionally overstay their visit to the UAE, according to travel agents, often unaware that the grace period has been eliminated. Overstaying your visit in the UAE, whether on a residence or visit visa, can lead to a daily fine of Dh50.

To clear any fines incurred from overstaying, follow these six steps:

  • Visit the website of the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security. On the homepage, click on 'Fines and Leave Permits'.
  • On the next page, click 'Start Service' in the box labeled 'Fines - Pay Fines - Violations of Entry Permissions or Residences - Pay New Fine'.
  •  If you were on a residence visa, fill out the required fields. If not, click on 'citizens of certain countries' and complete the necessary fields.
  • Click 'Verify Applicant' and then 'Next' to proceed to the next page.
  •  Review your application and confirm all relevant details.
  •  You will be directed to a payment page where you can pay the fine. Once the payment is processed, you will receive confirmation of the transaction.
