UAE Amnesty or UAE Leniency will be our target for today informative guide.
Questions we are going to answer will be:

The FAIC, Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship is going to grant a grace period for residency visa violators who are illegally residing in the UAE.

UAE Government helped its residents several times, this time a big relief from UAE Cabinet passed which cover simple and straightforward rules especially on overstaying which will encourage expats who are illegally staying across United Arab Emirates to take advantage of upcoming 3 months Amnesty period to amend their visa status from illegal to legal.

What is the date of UAE Amnesty for 2018?
The new facilitated process for people overstaying their visa’s effective for 3 months starting 1 August 2018 to 31 October 2018.

Who can take advantage from New UAE Visa Rules?
Each and every person who is living in UAE illegally can take advantage of new visa rules for UAE, as we know most of those who are overstaying here are going through torturous nights due to uncertainty of their future hence It is a very good and big news for them, point to be noted that those with police cases may not get amnesty exemption but it is not yet confirmed as some more options on the new decision for people who are overstaying have yet to be released.

UAE Amnesty for illegal and overstay people
Who can get Overstay fine exemptions?
Those who have overstayed in UAE and are going to leave UAE voluntarily can get overstay exemption, as we clear above those with police cases are not included.

Can someone leave UAE Without paying fines?
Yes, people who are overstaying in any part of UAE are given options to leave country without fines which will begin from 1st August till 31st October 2018.
In more details, if you are a violator and living in UAE illegally, you will have 2 options, either rectify and change your visa status or leave country voluntarily without having to suffer any legal penalties along with waiving overstay fines that they may have due to their illegal stay in the country.

This is also confirmed by UAE Number 1 News Website "Gulf News", screenshot from their website is attached below for your reference.



Can someone face ban while applying for Amnesty?
We are taking about Immigration and Labour Ban here, if you’re paying for your own ticket, you will not get a ban.
Also, if you have entered UAE illegally and leave the country voluntarily within 3 months amnesty or leniency period, you will not get the ‘no entry’ stamp on your passport which will also valid for next 2 years.



Will someone get Immigration Ban?
 No, if you’re paying for your own ticket, you will not get a ban.
Also, if you have entered UAE illegally and leave the country voluntarily within 3 months amnesty or leniency period, you will not get the ‘no entry’ stamp on your passport which will also valid for next 2 years.

What will be Amnesty options, will we must leave UAE or we can stay?
The violators will have the option to either rectify their status, or to leave the UAE voluntarily without having to suffer any legal consequences, along with waiving any fines that they may have due to their illegal stay.

Can I re-enter UAE after amnesty?
If you have not given Immigration ban, you can enter UAE anytime, also point to be noted that if you are a jobseeker and overstaying in UAE, a 6 months visa has been introduced for you, so if you wish to work in UAE without leaving the country, you can.
And yes, it is true because the UAE Cabinet will allow individuals wishing to adjust or renew their visas to do so for a fee, without having to leave (In-Out) the country.

    1. Who told you to go to Aweer police station? In case if Company is not legal in Documents, for sure Immigration will ban you because you do not have right to live with visa in UAE, the mistake our people do is to visit Immigration offices and after visit they cannot guide officials, what you people need to do before visiting any Immigration Department, search for new sponsor, search for job, search for new visa, if someone can provide you visa, take him (sponsor) to Immigration with you to speak with them that we are going to process his/her visa, just pay overstay fine and get new visa, this is the process, feeling sorry for you Atif.

    1. If you have paid overstay fines, then you need to check with any travel agency to apply visa for you, if it get approved, you will need to check your luck on Airport, if airport authorities allowed you to enter then you can apply for residency by getting job.
