Visa Fine - Tourist Visa Overstay?

A friend has a situation where she is on a 14-day tourist Visa (Visa on Arrival for Indian Green Card holders).

She leaves for Berlin a day later than her Visa expires.

Her choices are:

1) Extend the Visa at GDRFA which costs 500 dirhams plus (and not 250 dirhams as advertised).

2) Leave as planned and pay a 1-day tourist fine.


-- What do you suppose that fine is?

-- Do you think having a fine has any adverse future consequences for both tourist/resident Visas?

-- What is the fine payment process?

Any help in this regard will be great!

Depending on airline, she will most likely not be able to check in and therefor not pass immigration.

It doesn't have any adverse future impact. Source: I know a couple of people who keep overstaying their on arrival visa for one reason or the other, and then keep returning back with no issues at all. Some of them converted to employment visa too.

go to the airport before midnight the day before the flight and avoid the fee.

Leave a day later. At the immigration counter they will send her to another counter to pay the excess fine. That's it actually. No adverse effects.

According to this, extension is 250 AED. I believe overstay fine for tourist visa holders are 200 for the 1st day, and 100 for the subsequent days. The fine is assessed and paid on the immigration counter.
