Unofficial News for Former UAE Residents: 
Few days back we received screenshot of a website by our reader in which it was stated that former UAE Residents can apply for UAE Amnesty.

Amnesty for Former UAE Residents

The content of that screenshot was “people with minor crimes such as entry ban, or residency violation may be able to return to the country to avail UAE Amnesty scheme”.

They also stated, “Former residents who got UAE Entry Ban while leaving country can apply for tourist, resident or investor visa through normal channels during the Amnesty 2018 period”.

Source of Above News:
After reading above news about Former Residents entry and availing of Amnesty Scheme, we checked the source of it, as per news website the spokesman was not the official person and want to be unnamed on media.

Can Former Residents Re-enter UAE to avail Amnesty? 
So, it is confirmed that the above highlighted news was not from official source or platform, it means it was just a rumor, let’s come to the point now…!

As per a senior UAE official, who clarified that former residents, who are facing ban from re-entering UAE cannot avail the amnesty 2018.

In simple words, all those who wants to apply for amnesty and are facing UAE entry ban due to their violation of UAE Law, cannot enter the country or cannot remove their ban using UAE Amnesty 2018 scheme.

Announcement Source for Former Resident:
This announcement came from a senior official of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship which recorded by Gulf News on Sunday at Shahama Center for amnesty seekers in Abu Dhabi.

Who can Avail UAE Amnesty 2018?
As we stated in our previous Amnesty guide, this 3 months UAE Amnesty scheme is only for foreigners who are currently living (residing) in United Arab Emirates.

In other words, expats residing in any state of UAE illegally (overstay people, runaway, absconders etc.) can utilize the amnesty scheme to either regularize their visa status or to exit the country without paying overstay fines.

How to lift Absconding case

So, please do not waste your money by trying to get visit or tourist visa in-order to apply for amnesty, always try to reach and follow announcements from UAE official source, we hope it is now clear to everyone that former UAE residents cannot apply for Amnesty 2018 or UAE Amnesty 2018 is not applicable for former residents.

    2. Yes there is no chance so far, hopefully UAE Government will think about former residents.

  3. Good day ,
    I would like to ask if I was deported from Abu dhabi and been in jail for overstaying and as what they inform me that I'm blacklisted . Is there's any chance for me to get visa for UAE ? or any chance for my case to be solve ? I did the eyescan and the finger scan when I was leaving from the airport I'm Jordanian I left in 2013 , is it possible for me to make amnesty?

    1. No, you cannot avail amnesty 2018, hopefully it is only possible if UAE Government announced something for former residents with entry ban.

    2. UAE LABOURS is there any update for former residents? ? Its 2nd month of amnesty maybe they will give chance also thanks!

    3. Soon, UAE will open door for Foreign Nationals to get 6 months temporary residence visa.

    4. Uae labours still no news for former residents with absconding due to the employer who cant give visa and just went home and got banned? I thought there is no ban since 2016? Why some officials in airport got eye scanned for my friend. Have mercy pls! He is innocent but due to lack of knowledge his employer ruined his papers all he wants is to just work uae and this happened, there is no space for innocent people for employers who are thinking themelves only. UAE GOVERNMENT please boos, give them a chance you know they only working for them family, they are humans also.

  4. I have a 1 year ban is it covered with amnesty?

  5. If someone that enter uae legal but have overstay of 3 year an want to go back to her country but her passport is lost an now she don't have passport only passport copy will the person be given ban for 2 years?

    1. What are you waiting for? Amnesty is for you people, go and apply for amnesty, you fine will be waived and you can easily get new passport through your consulate.

  8. Hi!I am a former resident in UAE who already finished a 2 yr immigration ban.Can I apply for a tourist or visit visa?i hope UAE will open the door to former resident who had a absconding case to enter and work again.

  9. I finished my limited contract for 2 yrs in my 1st employer, after getting gratuity and cancellations i found a new employer, and they did not let me exit, because they promised me that they will issue my visa, i trusted them, eventhough im worried, they let me work without proper visa i only have my license in my profession, then they failed to process my visa, my ex employer filed an absconding case against me, and got banned to uae for 5 years, why i need to suffer this situation well in fact its my new employer who really caused this problem, now i lost my career and waiting for 7 months in my country waiting for the promises of my new employer that they will get me back, but i dont really know if they really doing something, they put me to nothing, they dont know what sacrifices made just to get license to work for my family, this is injustice, unfair! I hope all the legit websites of the uae government will help me to get through this.thank you!
