Is It possible to Dismiss fines in Dubai?

Dubai allows anyone with violations, whether they are traffic violations, residency or visit visa violations, or even if there is a fine imposed against them, to submit a request for exemption or dismissal of the fines, by submitting a mercy petition f according to the prescribed procedures and conditions.

A mercy petition for violations in Dubai can be defined as the request submitted by an individual facing fines or imprisonment as a result of committing violations against the regulations and laws in the Emirate, seeking exemption from the fine or its reduction, exemption from imprisonment or its reduction, or requesting not to be penalized with deportation from the United Arab Emirates.

Types of Mercy Petitions for Violations in Dubai

  • Residency Violation Mercy Petition: This is submitted by expatriates in the Emirate requesting exemption from fines related to residency violations, especially if their residency has expired without renewal.
  • Traffic Violation Mercy Petition: This petition is submitted by individuals who have committed traffic violations resulting in financial fines and possibly imprisonment.
  • Visit Visa Violation Mercy Petition: Submitted by visitors on a visit visa to Dubai who have violated regulations related to the expiration of their visit duration without leaving the country, or for any violation committed during their stay.
  • Mercy Petition for Violations Requiring Penal Sanctions: Submitted to the Dubai Public Prosecution for exemption from or reduction of penal sanctions.

Perhaps the most significant among these mercy petitions is the one for residency violations in Dubai, submitted by expatriates either to be exempted from fines incurred by these violations, to avoid deportation, or to seek re-entry into the UAE after having been deported.

Deportation for residency violations, known as administrative deportation, often results from the expiration of an expatriate’s stay without renewal.

There is also what is known as judicial deportation, which is a deportation resulting from the imposition of a penal sanction for a crime committed by the expatriate. This results in the individual being punished with the original sanction of imprisonment and a fine, and a subsequent penalty of deportation from the Emirates upon completion of the original punishment, or by deportation alone without serving a prison sentence.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What is the response time for a mercy petition?

The response time for a mercy petition varies depending on the entity to which the petition was submitted, whether there is a significant number of mercy petitions already submitted to that entity, and depending on the nature of the case being petitioned for mercy. Petitions related to exemption from penal sanctions generally take longer to process than those related to exemption from traffic violations.

Can one appeal against the decision to reject a mercy petition?

It is not possible to appeal against the decision to reject a mercy petition because such a decision is not judicial. Furthermore, when a mercy petition is submitted by anyone, whether a citizen or an expatriate, it does not obligate the administration to respond positively, nor is it considered an administrative decision that warrants a grievance or appeal.
