An informed security source revealed that the residency affairs departments have received instructions to apply the law to any expatriate whose residency expired on the first of this month and has not renewed it, pointing out that expatriates whose residency expires by the first of September do not apply to them the deadline issued by a ministerial decision to exempt them until the end of November 2020.
The source stated that the rest of the violators, that is, those whose residency or visitation has expired since March until the end of last August, will be exempted from the prescribed violation, and for those whose residency has expired starting from the beginning of September, they will be subjected to fines of two dinars for each day, unless they submit to one of the departments Residence affairs and obtains an approved extension.
The source stated that the justifications for the oral circular, which entered into actual implementation, came as there were no justifications for persons whose residency permits expired on September 1 and did not apply for renewal, especially since the residency affairs departments began receiving auditors starting from the end of last June.
The source emphasized that the rest of the residencies and visits to those who ended before the end of August and before them are automatically extended until the end of November without any fines. As for those whose residency expires at the beginning of September, daily fines will be imposed on them, calling on all residents to amend their legal status.
