The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has extended the grace period of exemption for "all violators" of the Entry and Residence of Foreigners Law until 31 December 2020.
The extension is for those who violated the entry and residency rules before 1 March 2020. Such individuals will be exempted from all fines, including National ID cards, provided they leave the country.
The grace period extension is to enable violators to adjust their status in the country before the end of the year.
