Default Extending tourist visa

I finally got my visa through on the 1st October 2008, hooray ... however my Labour Card has yet to arrive.

I therefore cannot sponsor mywife and kids who have only 2 weeks to go on their visit visas, and we also have a maid who we want to sponsor from Sri Lanka who only has 6 days left on her Tourist Visa. If my labour card came through tommorrow I could sponsor the lot of them, but until it does I am in Limbo.

Is there any way of extending any of these visa's without a trip out of the country for 1 month?

No doubt there are numerous previous threads, however there are numerous changing rules too, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

you can go up to the Hatta/Oman border for the wife and kids but I am really not sure about the Maid? It is different rules for the Brit's you see.

Just popped down to the naturalisation dept for a few hours of aggravation, and the family will be fine, but no visa extension for the maid, as they will not allow it until my wife has a visa too.
