Updated on 12 July 2020

A decision announced in April this year where visas and entry permits that expired after 1 March were extended until 31 December 2020, has been amended.

For citizens outside the UAE and residents outside the UAE for less than six months, a grace period of one month is in place from the date they return to the UAE/

Residents who are out of the country and their visa expired after 1 March or who have been out for the maximum 6 month period will be given a grace period to return determined by the ICA and dependents from when flights between the UAE and the specific country can resume.

The amendments are in effect now and a schedule for accepting renewal applications has been announced.

  • For renewal of visas and Emirates ID that expired in March and April this year, renewal requests are accepted now.
  • For renewal of visas and Emirates ID that expired in May this year, renewal requests will be accepted from 11 August 2020.
  • For renewal of visas and Emirates ID that expired in June this year and between 1 July and 11 July 2020 renewal requests will be accepted from 10 September 2020. 
  • For renewal of visas and Emirates ID that expire after 11 July there are no restrictions for accepting applications and can be done straight away.
