Default Overstaying your visa

Ok so the police have my passport as I got arrested 5 weeks back and still haven;t been to court yet.

Now my visit visa (I was doing visa runs) ran out a week ago and the police won't let me have it back.

I have a lawyer who says she can do a swop with a mate of mine but he is going home early December so isn't too keen to do a swop just in case (and I can see his point).

So....the question is I can pay the overstay fines but any idea what happens is I go so 3 or 4 weeks as an overstay? Can I get into bother, ie kicked out of the country?

Any help wouldbe appreciated.

p.s. I could easily do a swop with the wifes passport but they 'only accept passport of man with a good job'.

I didn't realise you could swap visas. How does that work without a passport?

Things change all the time but I think it is 100 dhs a day for an overstay, it is less if there is a visa application pending which there isn't in your case. I would swap mine with yours but I can't I think I am going home in December and I need to be around as we have a few problems in UK with my Brother. What has happened to people in the past is that they accrue a fair amount, a few grand, then the barter with immigration to get it reduced, under the circumstances I think you will get yours reduced. I would inform immigration in person of the current situation and try and get some written clarification from them.

Ok, well not quite the same thing - but hopefully gives you an idea...

My maid's visa expired in July and I finally got around to cancelling it in September - this cost me 20AED / day in fines after the one month grace period.

I then failed again to send her home or issue a new visa (we were keeping her and I changed jobs had my visa cancelled).

The fines then started accruing (20 AED per day) from September until I issued the temp. work visa. I now have until December to issue the final one or the fines start again (at a new rate of 10 AED / day). Apparently overstaying is cheaper in Dubai than Abu Dhabi.

Good luck with the arrest case - is this the van incident?

yeah it is, should be ok - drunk and smashed a police van up, abusiver to the police (but they never charged me with that) so will have to pay to replace the van door and a drunk fine, should be something like AED 15k and I've paid 20k to lawyers as well.

And then my overstay fines.

Possibly coz they thought you were speaking some weird foreign language they'd never heard before?

Don't speak too soon. The case hasn't been heard in court yet. Fingers crossed.
