Penalties for residency law violations changed

posted on 31/03/2001: 1015 views

Dubai Public Prosecution and Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Administration, DNRA, have replaced the penalties of violations by expatriates which require prosecution with fines and deportation from April 1.

The fines would be paid directly to the DNRA instead of courts. Dubai Prosecutor Ibrahim Bumilha said the violating resent expatriate will be fined whether he decides to renew the residency or leave the country. He added that those who decide to leave the country will also be banned from re-entering for a period of one year. He said violating visitors too will have to pay fines and face a ban from re-entering the country for a period of one year.

People who enter and stay in the country illegally would be deported by the administration after taking their pictures and fingerprints. Those who were banned from entering the UAE need a special permission from the minister of interior to re-enter the country, otherwise they would be deported again.

People who try to enter the UAE with forged documents would also be deported to the place they came from. Bumilha said the new decision was only related to the cases of violating residency laws and that it was aimed at reducing the burdens of courts, public prosecution and the naturalisation department. Residency violation cases made up 70-80 per cent of violations in Dubai, adding that 15,542 such cases were registered in Dubai last year. (The Gulf Today)
