UAE Visit Visa Extension now made easy!

This year has started with some awesome gifts bestowed by the UAE.

The UAE has revoked the condition of a one-month gap for renewing visit visas. People on such visas will no longer need to exit the country to get an extension of their stay here. They can now do it by paying Dh570 and stay for a month more without exiting the country. 

This comes with a condition that - All companies and visitors should submit applications and transactions before the expiry date of the visa period to avoid violations. 

The  new rule is applicable for all entry permits. These permits would include transit visas, short-term (one month) and long-term visit (90 days) visas, student visas, visas for medical treatment and residence visas.

In the previous visa requirements, visit visa holders needed to exit the country after the expiry of the visa term and had to stay out of the country for at least a month before being able to re-enter on another visit visa.

Amending your visa status is now hassle-free. All Expat residents expressed their happiness with the revised rule.
