UAE exempts overstaying Sudanese nationals from fines


The UAE has exempted Sudanese nationals from fines incurred for violating the country's entry and residence law.

The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICPUAE) said the exemption takes effect from April 15, 2023.

It added that the humanitarian gesture takes into account the current situation in Sudan.

The latest decision applies to holders of expired visas, residence permits and employment contracts, as well as those whose deadline for leaving the UAE has passed.
