As of the 15th of April in 2023, Sudanese citizens living in the United Arab Emirates will no longer be subject to fines for breaking the Federal Decree-Law on Entry and Residence of Foreigners, according to an announcement made by the Federal Authority For Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICP).
This step is in accordance with the approach taken by the UAE and its high-minded humanitarian ideals. Additionally, it reflects the eagerness of the UAE's wise leadership to offer Sudanese nationals living in the country with good lifestyles.
Among the groups who are excused from paying penalties are those who have visas and residency permits that have expired, people whose job contracts have finished, and people whose deadlines for leaving the UAE have passed.
The Director General of the International Crisis Group, Major General Suhail Saeed Al Khaili, emphasised the long-standing ties that exist between the United Arab Emirates and Sudan, as well as the eagerness of the UAE's leadership to assist the Sudanese people and stand by their side.
The United Arab Emirates made the decision to exempt the Sudanese people who are currently in the country and violated the residency law. This decision demonstrates the UAE's generosity and values as well as its keenness to enable the Sudanese people to have stable lives, he said, adding that he hopes that peace and security will soon return to the country and its people.
The Sudanese Embassy in the United Arab Emirates issued an official statement in which it expressed thanks to the leadership of the UAE for their support and concern towards the Sudanese population that resides in the nation. In addition, the embassy would like to express its gratitude to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation as well as all of the appropriate national authorities who were engaged.
