Also Helen- when all the typing centres appear not to be taking any new applications ( or all teh oens I have been to) what are you meant to do? None of the phone numbers work- or they aren't answering? I can't take that much time out of work to run around seeing if there is one open or not.

You could do what I did - find a fixer company to arrange it all for you. Costs more but all the admin is in their hands and all you do is turn up when they tell you to.

Yeah - I did have to take time off work and wait a long time. They need to get themselves organised so people can get done what's needed, not put obstacles in the way so they can find an excuse to fine us!!

It's not a fine, it's a tax.

I spent 6 hours yesterday trying to get it done- tried 9 typing offices- I have deadlines I can't take an unlimited ammount of time off to try a million different typing offices that may or maynot be accepting new applications- now if they answered the bloody phones- that may help!

But yes, the deadline to begin process is 31st December.
its cheaper in dxb as its 370 in abu dhabi, but then we can keep our passports.

Yeah, my point was they will stop accepting applications just to fine/tax people here.

Like road fines - you don't even have to be in the country to be getting speeding fines now, it's all just a tax.

yeh thats right you may get traffic fines that are not for your car, you may not even be in the country but you still have to pay up. i have an id card as i was told needed it for car re-registration,got the card and when i was in traffic i asked if i needed to show id nope. obviously that will change but not back in october. if you are in the process of changing visas or they are coming to renewal, then when your visa is cancelled your id will not be valid and you will need to wait until your new visa comes through to get a new id card for that visa so there is no point.

Tell me about it. I'm disputing a Dhs 250 parking fine that I was apparently given for being where I wasn't. No one has any paperwork so I'm refusing to pay it.

I'm heading to Heathrow Thursday night, fingers crossed it'll all be sorted by then.

As a newbie, will I get in trouble for going 'off topic' now and get my first cyber b*ll**ing???
I am out of NCL this morning, it's looking good. The South is getting a right hammering

i remember a few years ago, when registering my car an expat had been in there for that day and the day before sounds like, arguing over fines for something like 10k which were not hers. fact of life here.

I am trying to write a short piece about the deadline and EIDA either don't answer the phone, or if they do they out me through to a media office which must be empty/closed.
