Fines Due to Expired Residency Visas are Temporarily Canceled

Fines Due to Expired Residency Visas are Temporarily Canceled - Coming Soon in UAE
6 April 2020

The decision to temporarily stop fines for holders of expired residency visas has been enforced. The term for the absence of fines was also determined – until the end of 2020.

Such a move to support those who work in UAE or stay in the country for other reasons was announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai. An official announcement was made on April 5 at a virtual cabinet meeting that he chaired.

This is one of the measures that are being taken in the country in connection with the fight against the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19. This will not only help alleviate the situation of residency visa holders but also reduce the burden on official bodies and prevent the number of possible contacts.

In addition to the temporary suspension of fines, several important steps to overcome the crisis were announced at the meeting. In particular, the task was set to strengthen the country’s strategic stockpile and to plan a review of the work of production facilities whose capacities can be directed to the needs of healthcare.
