Dubai announces 10-year jail time for forging visa, residence permit

“Anyone who has forged a visa, residence permit, or any official document issued on the basis of this visa or permits, with the intention of evading the provisions of the law, shall be punished with imprisonment for a period not exceeding 10 years”

The consequences don’t stop at imprisonment; the Court is also mandated to order the deportation of the foreigner from the state in all instances, regardless of whether they were directly involved in the forgery or merely complicit in its use.
