• A new regulation instituted fines at a rate of US$54 per day, for a maximum of five days, on anyone who overstays a business or traveler visa. If the visa holder stays beyond five days, he/she will be required to obtain an exit pass and pay an additional penalty. Sponsoring companies will be fined US$280 per day, which must be paid within 24 hours.
  • Business and traveler visa holders who need to stay in the UAE longer than the visa allows, must exit the country and immediately reapply for entry.
