The first thing to note is that you have about 10 days grace period. So, if your visa has expired or is about to expire then as long as you are within the grace period of 10 days, you are OK to go and do the run to Hatta. Even if you are beyong 10 days, you should still be fine but beware that each’s overstay will mean incurring an automatic fine.
You will know this when you try to leave the country.
OK so how do you get to Hatta and back with a 30 day visa extension?
If you have friends or people you know who are in similar situation and you access to a car then why not share the costs and be done within 3 hours. That is how long it will take for you to be back in Dubai.
Alternative transport is available. There people who advertise on Dubizzle or you can hop on a bus from Diera clock roundabout. The cost is about AED40
The visa charges are AED50. Well that’s what I paid back in March. In the past fees have been as high as AED200.
Let’s get going. So you are on your way to Hatta. Google the road from Dubai to Hatta, Oman. Once you are on it, it is a straight all the way. Along the route, you will stop at a checkpoint. Show your passport, collect a chit for your vehicle and proceed. The next stop is the border exit point. Here you stop and park your vehicle. Approach the counter window clearly marked for purpose of leaving Dubai, exit stamp. You show your chit. It is stamped along with your visa. Make sure this is done or you will have to come back and get it done.
Continue toward Hatta, Oman. Please drive carefully in Oman. There are lots of speed cameras and slower speed restriction apply. You will be stopped at the next security point.
