Palestinian nationals in the UAE can continue their stay and legalise their status in case their residency permits or visit visas have expired, a top official at the Ministry of Interior (MoI) told Khaleej Times on Monday.

"Also, they can renew their residency permits without paying fines. Palestinians staying in the country on visit visas can legalise their status if they find job offers without the need to leave the country”, said Brigadier Nassir Al Awadi Al Menhali, Acting Director General of the Naturalization and Residency Department in the Ministry of Interior.

He said the decision had come from the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The decision also allows the Palestinians to enter the country on visit visa without paying charges.

Palestinians can also transfer their sponsorships without paying the charges at the naturalisation and residency departments in the country,” Brig Menhali said.

According to the Abu Dhabi Naturalization and Residency Department (ABNRD), a total of 1,477 visit visas were issued to Palestinians in 2008.

Meanwhile, Khaleej Times has learnt that the Ministry of Labour is studying the option of helping the Palestinians to transfer their sponsorships for a third time. The normal limit allows for two transfers. – Khaleej Times
