Can we apply for Amnesty in UAE without Passport and Visa?

Full details of UAE Amnesty have yet to be released but it is confirmed that Residents (expats) living in any part of United Arab Emirates either with or without legal documents can apply for upcoming new amnesty scheme for 2018 which will start August 1 and will end at the end of October 2018.


Can Overstay people apply for amnesty?

Thousands of overstay people from all states of UAE whose visas are expired are willing to come forward to change their legal status by applying for amnesty.

As per our research and information those who overstay their visa will be eligible to leave the country without penalties (fine) or a ban on re-entry to UAE, because financial penalties (fines) have been removed by authorities for overstay offenders who wants to leave UAE voluntarily.

Amnesty for Children?

Yes, Children can apply for UAE Immigration Amnesty said Barney Almazar, head of legal aid at the Philippine consulate and embassy.

As per experienced lawyers and welfare workers, they said “In the case of children and other dependents, we believed children could be sent to their homelands if their relatives in home countries are ready to care for them”.

Can people with Criminal or Civil Cases apply for Amnesty?

As per some Lawyers “people must clear civil and criminal cases to be eligible to change their visa status”.
Only children and dependents can be sent to their home countries, not their parents if they have criminal case in UAE.

Anyone who have police case, criminal or civil case in court will need to clear all their cases, they can only apply for Immigration amnesty when their trial is finished .

“The parents must face any existing criminal case, Police case or civil case and cannot leave UAE unless they pay the fine or serve the judgment and get clearance from the police”.

Its mean People with previous civil cases must face the court if they want to re-enter UAE.”

Can people with absconding cases avail UAE Amnesty 2018?

As we have answered many of our kind visitors that we are not sure about absconders, runaway expats in UAE can apply for amnesty or No, this is not yet final, we need to wait till next notice from Ministry because a program with full details about absconding people will soon be announced.



Advise to absconders and Runaway expats who wants to apply for Amnesty.
Residents with absconding cases which filed by their previous sponsors (employers) need to contact them and request (appeal) them to withdraw of the absconding files.
It is better to pay the withdraw fees to your previous employers to lift absconding case if they agree.

Is People with financial debts eligible to apply amnesty?

It is not yet final, but 80% sure that people who defaulted on banks loan, payment through credit cards, people with absconding cases can not avail amnesty.
It is our again and again request to all our readers and visitors that please wait for upcoming notification by UAE Ministry which will clear everything.

Can those who have Children out of Wedlock avail Amnesty?

No, expats who have children out of wedlock will not be given chance to apply for UAE amnesty 2018, they must face the legal consequences (penalties), which is Jail (imprisonment) up to 1 Year or whatever jail time announced by judge.

Still confused, ask us anything about:

  2. Hi! I just want to ask a question, my son's visa is currently on process under my sponsorship, however his visit visa is already expired and he has already overstayed for almost a month now. After we get the approval of his residence visa, will the immigration waive the penalty he incurred for his overstay?

    1. No, you will have to apply for amnesty in order to lift the overstay fine, system by itself can not waive fines, whenever you wants to apply In/out for him, Immigration system will stop and will ask you to pay overstay fines in order to get entry/exit stamp on new visa.
      I hope this reply will help you, if not please reply back.

    1. Try to arrange money and pay the fine as it they applied absconding case against you, you may cannot avail amnesty as absconders can only apply for amnesty if their previous absconding case removed,

      Regarding overstay, yes you can avail amnesty if you are overstay only, you will be given a chance to rectify your status.

  7. Hello,
    I know someone with absconding case, but hers is quite confusing. She was cancelled august 2012, got her year end service benefit and last salary. However, she dudnt get a job right away, and unfortunately over stayed (til present). After 6 months of cancellation, her previous employer filed an abdsconding case April 2013, and promised to forfeit the case once she have a new visa.

    She finally have a job offer, but unfortunately, the previous company was asking her to paybthe fines amounting to 10k, in order for them to withdraw the absconding case.
    With this situation, can she still apply for the amnesty, or really need to raise the 10k to withdraw abscinding ..then apply for amnesty??

    Thank you.

    1. Hello JAMES
      The visa they are providing you is visit visa which cost just 900 - 1300 AED, you can buy it online,

      Point 2: PCC (police clearance certificate) is no more require now,

      Point 3: confirm him first the details of employer, ask him company name and location details, if he gave you, just google the company details, if google can provide you details of the company, then it must give you their website, phone details and email address, try to contact them directly from Nigeria, it will cost you just 10 dirhams to call them and confirm them either they are willing to hire someone from Nigeria, tell them full details, you can send them your resume on their email address, if they are really looking for candidates, you can get free visa from Them, this is what we can suggest you,

  33. Good evening sir! In my situation right now, I filed a labor case against to my previous company due to non payment of my end of service as I am entitled as an employee. The judgement was in my favor and my previous company urged by the court to render my end of service payment. My visa which is under from the previous company has been expired last May 03, 2018 and I applied for the cancellation of my visa by myself on May 28, 2018 and the MOHRE (Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratization) approved it last July 09, 2018. But unfortunately the payment is not yet given until now and I don't have any idea when I will get it. Is it possible to apply for the amnesty as I want to stay here in Dubai because I still need to continue working because I am the only person who supports my two children back home. I am looking forward for your response in this matter. Thank you so much in advance.

    1. It’s better for you to pay the fine, don’t wait for amnesty as it will begin on 1 August and their will thousands of applicants, so there is a chance of more delay (overstay), if you want to live legally, don’t save few pennies, just go for the legal way.

  36. HI, just want to ask, Im a Filipina and i enter here in UAE Sept 2016, got an offer letter Nov29, 2016 and the company took my passport because they say they will process my employment visa. My visit visa expired Dec15,2016. Still no passport and held by the company. They process our(with another filipina) labour card on January, and expires MArch 15, 2017. And they did not continue to process our employment visa, that is why we file a complaint in labour and in Dubai Court for not giving us our salary and employment visa.But we cant contact them until now, that is why our PRO told us cancel our case and we already cancelled in Labour. They said if we cancel the case we dont have fine because we are already overstayed for less than a year. So we go to al awir and give us 10k each for overstay fines. Today we went to al awir to pay the fines but they did not accept the payment because they said we will wait for August 1. My question is, if we want to work here still, are we allowed to go in Oman or Armenia and then come back here for visit visa? Thank you..
