Where do you pick up and drop off from?
Currently all trips pick up from the main entrance Dubai Marina mall. Its pretty straight forward to find it, but if you love the fine details you can zoom in on the pinpoint of the pickup & drop off location on this map HERE. Its by the valet parking, the glass sliding doors, close to Starbucks and Cafe Nero.
Grace period, or no grace period?
All 30 day tourist visas have a 9 day grace period and should only be renewed between 31-39 days. Overstay fines will occur after this, but we can guide you through that if you have one.
Nationalities who receive 90 day tourist visas have no grace period.
When a Residence Visa is cancelled the person can exit any day on or before the date written on the cancellation paper. Usually a grace period of around 30 days to exit. Stay longer and you'll get fined.
If a tourist visa has been extended through the DNRD/Immigration there is no grace period.
