S***! I Was An Illegal Immigrant For 3 Months!

View all 30 photos...
This incident happened during our trip along the way to Muscat, Oman.

Everything was going smoothly and we were very excited plus on the mood for holidaying...can't wait to see the scenery along the way to Muscat, really!! I woke up early in the morning so that we could enjoy at least half of the day in Muscat, and I was budgeting the travelling time will take about 6-7 hours via the highway.

At 7am after Subuh we departed from Abu Dhabi. 2 hours later, we reached the Oman border in Al Ain/ Buraimi and we needed to stop to apply and pay for the visit visa. Suddenly the immigration officer was asking my husband where is my entry visa stamp into the UAE. He couldn't find it and passed the passport to me, and I also couldn't find it. The immigration officer also telling us that inside the system I was still outside the UAE. OMG!!! They told me I am an Illegal immigrant because the immigration at the airport mistakenly didn't stamp my passport when I was entering the UAE with my kids last August from Malaysia. My kids passport had the stamp and I saw Izz's passport been stamped twice! It must be their mistake (and also mine because I didn't check it...yelah..I've been travelling here and there for the past 3 years everything was going smoothly so I didn't bother to check my passport pun unless just to check on the expiry and also the residency visa)

The officer brought our case to the attention to their boss and the boss said we must go to the Abu Dhabi airport to get back the stamp unless I could be in the jail for being as an illegal immigrant...I must present the ticket (mana nak cari balik, dah 3 bulan lepas) or if I've lost it, then I need to contact Etihad duty manager to get the manifest document. Tension betul...nak screaming ada, nak menangis pun ada. Since the boss seemed really strict and hubby was willing to drive back all the way to Abu Dhabi airport to get this settled, then I told myself to be positive...in every problem, there's always a way out from it...

About 2 hours later, we arrived in the airport, I had to go to the ticket counter, check in counter, duty manager office, but nobody can help us with the manifest document that I was on the flight on last August...forget it nak pergi Muscat...then I just tried my luck, I approached directly to the immigration officer, I showed my children's passports...then they said it's ok...the immigration at the border could have helped me because I got the UAE residence visa....anyway, by 2.30pm finally I got the stamp...and we rushed back to Al Ain border and we have wasted about 10 hours with 6 hours driving and hubby had to drive back and forth for about 400km!

We entered the Oman at almost 5pm when it's already getting dark. No more scenery because it's dark....and hubby was patiently drove to Muscat until we arrived at 10pm. It's about a total of 15 hours of roadtrip, and approx 800km of journey for a day, half of it full of tense...At first we thought of canceling the trip, but since we have made advance payment on the hotel and hubby's leave already been approved, might as well just go there..But what a terrible and challenging day!...Memang betul2 test our patience, and it really resemble our marriage journey (since it's anniversary trip)...challenging and banyak betul cabaran at first...but then with patience and optimism, we've made it...and we really hope we will survive a lot more cabaran and dugaan yang akan datang together... InsyaAllah...Amin.....
