Those involved in the naked photoshoot on a balcony in Dubai are expected to be deported, according to authorities in the country.
Viral footage showed a group of nude women on the front of a penthouse apartment on the Dubai Marina in broad daylight.
Reports later confirmed that at least 11 women and a male photographer had been arrested on charges of public debauchery and spreading pornography.
According to Sky News, Dubai's attorney general, Issam Issa al Humaidan, said public prosecutors have completed an investigation and those in the photoshoot will be sent back to their countries.
The foreign ministry confirmed that 11 of the models arrested are Ukrainian and a Russian diplomat claimed that the photographer who filmed the stunt has Russian citizenship.
In a statement, it said: "On April 3, Dubai police detained a group of people in connection with a violation of public morals. According to preliminary information, among the detainees [are] 11 Ukrainian citizens."
The group of women sparked outrage in the country for ignoring strict laws around 'lewd' behaviour in the United Arab Emirates.
I later emerged that they may have been taking part in a stunt for a foreign porn site. Radha Stirling, Director and Founder of Detained in Dubai, told Metro that the organisation had been informed the stunt was for an Israeli porn channel.
Speaking to the newspaper, Stirling said: "Initially we were being told that it was the Israeli branch of a US adult website and now we are hearing that it's an Israeli porn channel.
A police statement read: "A criminal case has been registered against the arrested, and they have been referred to Public Prosecution for further legal action.
"Dubai Police warns against such unacceptable behaviours, which do not reflect the values and ethics of Emirati society."
The penalty for engaging in lewd behaviour is up to six months in prison and a fine of 5,000 AED (£985), with police warning about making and publishing 'pornographic material' online, which includes those sharing the images.
It added: "Any person who establishes, operates or supervises an electronic site and/or transmits, sends or publishes through an electronic site, gambling or pornographic materials shall be punished by imprisonment and a fine of not less than Dh250,000 and not exceeding Dh500,000."
