AnswerMost definitely. You must apply for an extention (if allowed) but once you pass the date on the visa you are now considered an illegal alien and probably be flagged that way if you ever try to get a visa to return. Think long and hard about extending your lawful stay, it may affect the rest of your visitation rights to the US for the rest of your life!

Actually you have a 30 day grace period after your status expires for a j1 visa. You can remain in the country legally for 30 days after the expiration.

Do you have to pay off your loan if you are permanently leaving the United Arab Emirates?

That certainly would be the right thing to do in any country before leaving. If money is owed, it rightly should be paid off. Usually expat residents have to have a clearance paper before leaving the country as proof nothing is owed and all loans have been paid. Banks are usually informed by companies/employers before an expat leaves a job in the UAE.
