Around 1,000 residency permits for expatriates stranded outside the country expire daily due to their sponsors or employers failing to renew them, reports Al Rai. This is despite the Ministry of Interior (MoI) allowing the online renewal of visas on the MoI website.

Expats with residency visas which have expired while they are outside the country, can’t return again except on a new entry visa, reports the daily. The status of these expats is different from the others who are outside the country for more than six months, as they have valid residency visas, as they were granted an extension until the end of the current year.
