People have been scrambling to finally heed the warning because the fine has been spelt out in no uncertain terms. Long queues, interminable waiting, slow systems, and in some cases refusal to accept applications by typing centres is frustrating a lot of people. The last-minuters are complaining about a whole day wasted just to get the typing done. Many are asking for one more extension, easily forgetting that ‘extension’ has been a big joke for the Emirates ID already.
They have already saved money by being late, compared to those who have done it 2 years ago. Let that be the silver lining on the dark clouds that engulf them now.
