Amnesty Begins on Wednesday in U.A.E.

The UAE Government’s landmark initiative to grant amnesty to residency law violators begins on Wednesday, offering reprieve to thousands of illegal residents.

The initiative is historic, as the government has announced many options to the amnesty seekers, which were never available during the amnesty periods in the past.

Brigadier Saeed Rakan Al Rashidi, director of Residency Affairs at the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, said: “This is a great opportunity for illegal residents to rectify their status legally or leave the country without paying fines.”

Although overstayers who find a new job were always allowed to regularise their status, absconders among them had to leave the country with an entry ban.

However, this amnesty offers a golden opportunity for absconders to get their absconding cases removed from the system and move to new visas, if they get job offers.
