The government of the United Arab Emirates has issued a new decision to allow 5 categories of visa holders in the Emirates to remain in Emirati territory after their visa expires.

According to the updated visa system (ICP), which was revealed by the Federal Authority for Identity, Naturalization, Customs and Port Security in the United Arab Emirates, 5 categories of visa holders are allowed to remain in the UAE for a period of 6 months after the expiration of their visa.

The categories revealed by the Federal Authority for Identity, Naturalization, Customs and Port Security in the UAE include golden visa holders and their family members, in addition to green visa holders and their family members, in addition to the widow or divorced woman of a foreigner residing in the UAE.

In addition to foreign students in the UAE who have completed their studies, as well as those sponsored by one of the universities or colleges in the UAE, it also includes residents of the UAE with skilled professions of the first and second levels, based on the classification of the Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation in the United Arab Emirates.
