My sister is going to give me a visit visa for me to visit her in Dubai. I'm here in Egypt with a tourist visa which has expired several months ago (April 2015).

My question is can I go to Dubai leaving from Egypt with an an expired Egyptian tourist visa? Will there be any problem if I leave Egypt?

    Do you mean you are in Egypt on an expired visa? – CGCampbell Sep 13 '15 at 4:36
  • You'll have to pay a fine while exiting; that's about it. – Burhan Khalid Sep 13 '15 at 7:30

Your problem is not Dubai, your problem will be leaving Egypt. However, accordingly to anecdotal evidence, overstays of "several months" can be settled with a fine of LE 150 paid at the airport on departure. I'm not sure if a half a year is too much, but I would definitely go the airport nice and early, and with a large stack of cash on hand.

You will pay penalty fees while departure, in the passport control officer will direct you to pay the fees. You need to plan for more time before your flight.

    This just duplicates the existing answer, except with less detail and no references. – David Richerby Feb 23 '16 at 15:51
