Dubai intends to launch what will be as the world’s first service of its kind involving easing procedures for illegal residents to leave the UAE.

The service, dubbed “boarding ticket for illegal residents” will be launched in early 2020 and is intended to expedite the departure of all expatriates whose visas have expired or those who overstay or reside illegally in the country.

The service will be launched by the General Directorate for Residence and Foreigners’ Affairs in coordination of DUBZ Company, an affiliate of Dnata.

“This service is meant to complete procedures for the travel of illegal residents in a speedy, modern and intelligent manner… it will also help us set up a comprehensive database for all illegal residents,” the Directorate’s Director General Major General Mohammed Ahmed Al-Marri said, quoted by Al Khaleej newspaper.

“This service is generally found in other countries but it is the first time that involves illegal residents…that is what distinguishes this service in Dubai from others,“ furthers Al Marri.

Al Marri said the service would allow illegal residents to board the plane without any obstacles, so “no one will miss the flight.”
