EP pending while awaiting STVP extension

Hi Friends,

My EP has been canceled on the 06th of July and MoM issued a Short Term Visit Pass (STVP) which is valid until 05th Aug. In between, I have got another job offer and they have applied my new EP, it is still in pending status.

As of 04th Aug, I don't have valid EP and STVP is expiring 05th Aug and I have requested my Previous employer to extend STVP on 25th July but they submitted the request on 31st July and waiting for the STVP extension.

If I don't get my STVP extension by end of 05th Aug,
1. so can I stay 2 or 3 days without a visa, due to COVID-19 we don't have any flights.
2. Do I need to pay any fine overstaying? How to handle this situation, please advise.

I am a bit worried. :(

Thanks in advance.

Just go to the MOM personally in morning by 7 am for further extension if your company didn't get it for you. Take your previous extension letter, passport. Make a reason that your visa is in pending state and also there is no flight to go. They will charge 40 dollar for 2 weeks and give you extension.

How long did it take to get the STVP extended?

Anyone managed to get it extended at MOM ?

As long as you have a pending EP, they will extend your visit - be sure and do it!

Thanks, My EP application is Pending (been nearly 3 weeks - 18 days), and No available Flights.

Requested STVP extension through Ex-HR.
