My maid's visa is up for renewal shortly. I believe there is a one month's grace period after expiry date to renew visa then then you get fined after that. Does anyone know definitively that this is still the case? I have looked on the DNRD website http://www.dubaifaqs.com/visa-maid-uae.php but it doesn't say. Her ID card also expires on the same day so I assume that once her visa has been renewed, then her ID card can be processed? And would I incur any fines? Thanks!

Bump Dragon, did you find a response to your question one way or another? Does anyone else know? DH is planning a work trip around the time when our maid's visa expires and won't be back for a fortnight or so after expiration so we're wondering whether we should renew beforehand to avoid any excessive fines or whether there is a month's grace period and we can do it on his return. TIA

At the beginning of the year it was 30 days grace. I know because we utilized it. I would double check though as the rules in this place are forever changing...

Strangely enough our maid had to start renewal of her Emirates ID first. Immigration would only start processing her new visa with a copy of the application form of her ID. And yes, grace period is still 30 days.
