Residency law violators from India, who have had their visas issued in Sharjah, can get their passports at the Indian Association Sharjah (IAS), reported the Khaleej Times.
The report further stated that over 2,000 passports of Indian nationals violating the UAE residency laws were handed over to the IAS by the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) Sharjah.
Dr Rajan Varghese, social worker at the IAS, said they are cooperating with the authorities to help amnesty-seekers. “The GDRFA has faith in the IAS and has handed over passports of residency law violators, who were issued visas from Sharjah. After the amnesty seekers get their passports from us, they can get their absconding fines lifted. All formalities like eye and fingerprint scanning can be completed at the Tasheel centres. They can then approach the GDRFA Sharjah for their exit permits,” he said.
