The one-month window started on July 12.

Tourists in the UAE whose visit visas had expired after March 1 are given one month to leave the country or change their visa status to avoid fines, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) announced on Monday.

The one-month window started on July 12, Brig Khamis Al Kaabi, spokesperson of the ICA, said in a TV interview.

Renew expired UAE visas and IDs online

The advisory follows the recent UAE Cabinet decision that cancelled all previously issued resolutions related to the residency of expatriates and validity of visas, entry permits and ID cards. The automatic extension of expired visas and IDs until December this year was withdrawn.

Latest UAE visa decision, fines explained

Brig Al Kaabi reiterated that residents and citizens within the country are given 90 days to renew their documents. Those outside the country will have a one-month window for renewal, with the grace period starting on the date of their arrival in the UAE.
