The UAE has doubled the fine for residence visa overstayers as part of new rules by the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security.
Residence visa violators now have to pay a fine of Dh50 for each day they overstay their visa. The daily fine was previously set at Dh25.
Meanwhile, the authority reduced by half the overstaying fines for holders of tourist visas or visit visas, with fines now set at Dh50 per day instead of Dh100.
“The overstay fine payment can be paid either by visiting happiness centres or online through the authority website and smart application,” a spokesperson for the authority said.
