About Us

We know from our experience that it can be complicated to fully grasp and understand the various rulings surrounding the Overstay process.
These rules will vary depending on which part of the world you are from, and unless they’re strictly adhered to can result in large fines the next time to attempt to exit the UAE.
Misinformation online and differing versions of accounts can indeed add to the confusion and further exacerbate the situation.
We have created an easy to use, three step process to help you to continuously monitor and determine your current status.

FAQ’s:
« How many days I have for my nationality? »
« How much would I pay per day if I exceed my visa allowance? »
« How much time do I have remaining inside the UAE before an overstay is charged? »
...

These are some of the questions we’ve answered by implementing this tool.
