The UAE government now requires all travellers on tourist visas flying from Indore to Dubai-Sharjah to have a confirmed return ticket. This measure specifically targets tourists to ensure they do not overstay their visas or work illegally. The rule is straightforward: no return ticket, no boarding pass. So, make sure your travel plans include a round trip, not just a one-way ticket to adventure.

For those in Madhya Pradesh eyeing a getaway to the UAE, Indore Airport is your only option for a direct flight to Dubai-Sharjah. Flights operate only on Thursdays, and they return the same night. This schedule is tight, so planning is essential. Miss this window, and you’ll have to wait another week for the next opportunity to fly out.

The UAE has taken a firm stand against individuals using tourist visas to stay and work illegally in Dubai and Sharjah. With tourist visas costing between 5,000 to 6,000 rupees, some travellers exploit these relatively affordable visas for long-term stays, circumventing immigration laws. The new rules aim to curb this practice and ensure that visitors follow proper protocols.
