Visa types Posted May 24, 2005
General Information

* There are basically two types of visas for visitors to Dubai: transit and visit visas.
* Nationals of "Israel" may not enter the U.A.E.
* A penalty charge is imposed on visitors who overstay.
* Airlines may require confirmation that the sponsor is holding a valid visa for the incoming visitor.

AGCC Citizens

Citizens of the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council member states do not need a visa.

UK Citizens

UK citizens with the right of abode in United Kingdom do not need to obtain a visa in advance. On entry, they will be given a special free of charge visit visa enabling them to stay for 30 days. This visa may be renewed twice, each time for a period 30 days, up to a total of 100 days including a 10 day grace period. A fee of Dhs 500 is charged for each renewal. Renewal requires a sponsor.

The facility offered to UK citizens is presently under review.

AGCC Residents

AGCC expatriates residents who meet certain conditions may obtain a non-renewable 30 day visa upon arrival at the approved ports of entry.

German Citizens

German citizens (tourists and businessmen) may apply to the UAE embassies for a one or two year multiple entry visa. No sponsor is required. The maximum duration of stay of visa holders should not exceed 3 months per year. The visa fee is Dhs 1,500.

US Citizens

US citizens (tourists and businessmen) may apply to the UAE embassies for a one to ten year multiple entry visa. A sponsor is required and the visa will be granted free of charge. The maximum duration of stay should not exceed 6 months per visit.

Hong Kong Citizens

Holders of the Hong Kong Certificates of Identity - the 44 page and 92 page Certificates - can obtain transit and visit visas.

Transit Visas

A transit Visa applies to businessmen and tourists. It requires the sponsorship of companies or hotels licensed to operate within the UAE. This visa is valid for use within one month from the date of issue.

The duration of stay is 14 days from date of entry, exclusive of arrival and departure days. It is non-renewable.

In order to complete the application, the sponsor will require the visitor's date of arrival and flight details, and a photocopy of the first few pages of the visitor's passport which should be valid for at least three months. There is a fee of Dhs 220 for obtaining a Transit Visa. Hotels in Dubai charge approximately Dhs 270 - 300 (US$ 75 - 85) per visa in order to cover the services for obtaining a visa for their guest.

The Transit Visa holder may enter and depart the U.A.E through any airport.

Visit Visas

The Visit Visa applies to tourists who wish to spend more than 14 days in Dubai, those coming for family visits as well as those on long term business visits.

It requires the sponsorship of any U.A.E. resident or any company or hotel licensed to operate within the U.A.E.

This visa is valid for entry within two months from its date of issue.

The duration of stay is 30 days from the date of entry, and may be renewed twice, each time for 30 days, up to a total of 100 days including a grace period of 10 days. A fee of Dhs 500 is charged for each renewal. A visit visa further entitles its holder to change his status to that of residence or employment provided certain conditions are met.

In order to complete the application, the sponsor will require the visitor's date of arrival and arrival details and a photocopy of the first few pages of the visitor's passport which should be valid for at least three months. There is a fee of Dhs 100 for obtaining a visit visa. Hotels in Dubai rarely sponsor their guests on Visit Visas and if they do, they charge approximately Dhs 270 - 400 (US$ 75 - 110) per visa in order to cover the services for obtaining a visa.

The Visit Visa holder may enter and leave the country through any port of entry in the U.A.E.

A special category of visas under the Visit Visa type is a "Tourist" Visa, which can be obtained for individual tourists from: East and West Europe, USA, Canada, Australia, Thailand, Japan, Malaysia, Hong Kong citizens, South Africa, Singapore and China. The "Tourist" Visa entitles its holder to a 30 day stay. It is non-renewable and has no grace period. The "Tourist" Visa requires the sponsorship of hotels and tour operators who bring in visitors from the above listed countries. The fee is Dhs 100. Hotels in Dubai charge approximately Dhs 270 - 300 (US$ 75 - 85) per visa in order to cover related administrative and other costs. The "Tourist" Visa will be issued by the Central Administration in future.

Transfer visa

This is a special type of visa which applies to passengers passing through UAE airports. The passenger can obtain a visa for upto 96 hours by leaving his/her passport with the immigration authorities. The visa is only valid if the passenger is travelling onwards from Dubai to another destination and not returning to the country of original departure. There is no fee for this type of visa which can be sponsored by any airline operating in the UAE.

Multiple-Entry Visas

Multiple-entry visas are availed to business visitors who have a relationship with either a multinational or other reputable local establishments, and who are frequent visitors to the UAE. This type of visa is valid for six months from the date of issue and the duration of each stay is 30 days. The validity is non-renewable. The cost of this visa is Dh 1,000. The visitor must enter the UAE on a visit visa and obtain the multiple entry visa while in the country. The visa would be stamped on the passport.

hey liban,

its me again - you said the rules for UK citizens is under review - do you know if this is likely to make visit visas easier or harder to obtain?

also - the visa on arrival for UK citizens - is this available only once or could the person leave the country and then get another visa stamped on entry? is it right that the visa on arrival will not require a sponsor?

the issue is that i dont think i will be able to sponsor my partner as we are not married or related.

cheers

On re-entry you can get your visa stamped so thats no issue and if you didn't require a sponsor the first time you enter then you will not require one on re-entry.

I believe they will be making it easier for UK residents due to the demand for real estate.

Cheers,

Smartd is right on both counts :)

You know, its only getting easier for UK citizens. I heard somewhere that they want to abolish visas for UK citizens from the island, but I could be mistaken.

Check out the Ministry of the Interior website posted in another of my stickies, its helpful but sorta slow loading (kinda like most gov websites I have visited).

Hey Liban, you seem to be very well informed.

Am from Australia, and the only way I could work out to stay was to get a 30 day visa and pay the money to extend to 60 days, then leave the country, come back and do this over again till i get a job and appropriate residency visa.

Does the Visit visa apply to me, ie; can i get my boyfriend to sponsor me, or would he have to run it through his employer?

cheers

Entry visa....?? Posted Feb 01, 2006
I have a 2 part question about entry visa (I know Liban we talk about it not long ago, but still have some :?: :?: ).

Let say, I decide to go to Dubai for a 60 days period, what would happen if;

1) I decide to stay longer? What do I have to do?

2) I decide to go back to Montreal erlier (say after 40 days or so)? What do I have to do?

Thank's guys for helping.

1) You can either do a visa run across the border into Oman and back or a round trip to Qatar (2-3 hours in all).... OR pay 500 AED and renew your tourist visa for an extra 30 days... I prefer option one :)

2) Just leave. They stamp your passport in the airport.

When you come here, you will have my mobile, I will help you the most I can with any problem or issue you may have my friend :)

You haven't heard of the Israel-Palestine conflict that has been going on for decades? You didn't just miss a school unit on that, you missed the daily newspapers and history shows made over the past decades. :shock:

To echo what everyone else said there is a wee bit of conflict between arab countries and Israel (understatement) but you can actually come into the UAE with an Israel stamp in your passport, this was changed a while back to facilitate trade with the US.

Hello Liban Posted Jun 04, 2006
I want to know about the driving license. I have my canadian driving license and here (in Canada) they told me that my canadian license will be only valid for a tourist visit in Dubai or anywhere around the world and it will be only valid if i m living in an hotel. And i will need to prove that when i get in Dubai for me to be able to drive a car. I want to work there and live there, but how can i use a tourist license to drive in Dubai. Here they told me i can not get an international license. All i will get is a tourist driving license.

I mean HELP, i need your advise.

If you come here and get a residency you can just exchange your canadian license for a UAE one. If you are coming on a visit then get an international license and you can drive here fine. Its not big deal norma, takes a few hours to get the license.

You can simply get it through Emirates airlines if you fly them here, or through the hotel you will be staying at. You need a person/organization to sponsor you.

When a company offers you a job in the UAE, do they give you a work permit or a residency visa ??

or are the two the same ? :?

a residency visa allows you to stay in the country – this done through the process of sponsorship
i.e. an employer (registered company) can sponsor an employee, an employee can sponsor his spouse (subject to regulations) etc..

a work permit entitles you to work in the country - this is done in the name of the company who employs you (again subject to conditions)

having residency does not automatically make you eligible for a work permit, although issuing of a work permit is dependant on having residency (either through the company or on under your spouses sponsorship)

Re-enter for Argentineans Posted Nov 29, 2006
Hi,

My girlfriend is Argentinean and needs a Visit or Tourist Visa (as I understood, it will not be issued to her at the airport like to e.g. EU citizens).
I can sponsor her a visit visa (I'm going to be employed in the UAE). Can she also do this sort of "visa run" to pick up a new visit visa when the old one runs out?

Thanks - Tom

It can be renewed after 2 or 3 months depending on the duration of her visa. One has to leave the country before the visa expired then come back or you can pay certain amount & renew the visa without leaving the country.

asc_26: Just to make sure that I get that right: as long as I keep issuing her new Visit Visas every 2/3 months (and paying the fees...), she wouldn't even have to leave the UAE for the time she's staying (lets say a year)? Would be great...

That is correct, the amount to pay for not leaving the Country after 2 months for (Visa Run) is Dhs. 500.00.

Well I made my Visa run and have new information for others that might wind up in the same situation.

First of all the visit visa continues to be 60 days not 30 for countries that have enjoyed this privilage in the past.

The person at customs who stamped my passport simply made a mistake.

Make sure when you go through customs you request the 60 day pass to be safe.

There was nothing they could do after the fact except say sorry.

I now have a new 60 day stamp.

Cheers,

Good Day,

I'm new here, just curious about the rumor regarding the age limit for the working visa (filipino women) here in dubai. in the news they said that you must be 25 yrs. old for you to be legally employed. I'm really concern about this issue, because my sister in law just graduated last year she went here to look for a job and luckily she is working now, but the problem is her age she is only 21 yrs old at the moment. I wish someone here can enlighten me, and please if you have reference please post it here.

Thanks..

hi everyone,

i'm moving out permanently in july but returning to the uk in december, i have a job and a sponsor but obviously my work / residents visa won't be sorted out until after i arrive in dubai.

so, i'm going to book a return flight (glasgow - dubai, dubai - glasgow) with approximately six months in between flights. as a uk citizen i'll get the visit visa on arrival, but do you think there will be any trouble getting into dubai with a return flight booked in six months time, without a work visa in place when i arrive at customs? if i showed the uae customs in dubai airport my 'offer of employment contract' would they accept that?

i suppose the obvious thing would be just to book an early return and change the dates once i've got my work visa

thanks for your help, any advice would be great[/i]

Recently I read reports that there will be a renewal limit of 2 or 3 times, then you have to stay out of the UAE for a month.

No, I don't.

Don't show them contract, just give passport and get a visit visa.

thanks for your advice Bonk, appreciated

also, asc_26, regarding renewing your girlfriend's visa perpetually, there might be a problem with it. that used to be ok but as bonk said, they've changed the rules on renewing visas.

someone staying on a visit visa can only renew it twice (initial three months, cross the border and come back again, second three months, cross the border and come back again, third and final three months) before having to leave the country for a month before they are allowed to re-enter dubai and start the process again

i hope that's not too much of a kick in the teeth - i'm in the same boat

Two months at a time plus one month extension which costs 500 dhs.

New type of visa - work mission visa

The Ministry of Labour has already begun the process of accepting work mission visa requests. Unlike a work visa, a mission visa is a temporary visa that is valid for three months and can be renewed for another three months. A sponsor can issue a work mission visa if he wants to bring an employee for temporary work, or if he wants to validate the qualification of the worker before signing a long-term contract.
The aim of the mission visa is to curb the widespread problem of people working on visit visas, which is illegal. Therefore, creating a short-term work visa which is easy to obtain so that both the employer and the employee can work together for three months and decide if they want to enter into a long-term contract. The benefit of this visa is that it is limited to a three-month contract and no ban is issued if the worker is dissatisfied with the job and does not take it up. Similarly the employer is also not obligated to hire the employee. This service is especially useful for employers who want to hire skilled labour like engineers, doctors, lawyers and technicians.
This visa also guarantees the right of the worker. On a visit visa, the worker does not have any right because he is working illegally and therefore, he is not covered by insurance. The employer has no liabilities. However, with a work mission visa, the worker’s rights are protected.
An employer can apply for a work mission visa with the License Department. If a committee there approves the request, the rest of the procedure is online.The visa is issued for a maximum of 180 days. It is issued for three months against a fee of Dh 600 and can be renewed for another three months, again for a fee of Dh 600. As per the rules, the employer has to notify the ministry when the worker enters the country. If the employer fails to do so, he will be fined Dh 500 for every 10 days. The Ministry has the right to reject converting the work mission visa into a work visa. This service cannot be availed of until and unless an employer sponsors a worker on this visa. Heavy fines will be imposed if people misuse this service.

Tourist Visa or Visit Visa? They're different (see Dubai visas). When you get one or renew, they don't ask you if you are working but you're supposed to get a work permit and residence visa if you have a job. If caught, you risk fines, bans and deportation. Risk level varies depending on job and nationality.

Where can I get Duabi Visit Visa at low cost ? Posted Sep 06, 2007
Hello friends,
My visit visa is going to expire recently.

I would like to take one visit visa to Dubai.

Many of the agents here are charging 1200-1500 AED for a visa, eventhough the actual cost for taking visit visa is very less( 100-200 AED).

Where can I get Visit Visa at cheap rate?

Please help me.

entering the country Posted Nov 01, 2007
Im from the USA, and my boyfriend is getting a 3 month intern there. His company is providing a visa for him, but i'm kind of on my own when it comes to the visa. I was reading that I have to get a sponsor, i dont exactly know what that means. I dont know anyone in UAE.
We are only going to be there for 3 months- 90 days, what is the best option for me?

If you are US Passport holder you may enter the UAE for a period of 60 days without visa, this can further be extended for another 30 days by paying AED 500.00 ($135.7)

You can go to the Dept. of Immigration or alternatively you could take short flight to Doha and back which will automatically give you a further 2 months.
