Passports and visas

A reader from Dubai asks:  My son is under my sponsorship. He will be 18 on February 10. His visa expires on April 10. I would like to ask you whether I can renew his residence visa. He is taking his board exam on April 25, here in Dubai. Do I need to cancel his visa?

The questioner will not have any problem with regards to his son’s residence visa. In relation to the visa which expires in February, the questioner’s son has 30 days after the expiry, and when the period of 30 days has lapsed, a new visa may be made for his son if he continues his education within the UAE, and in this event, the new visa will be only for one year to be renewed annually.
