Who Is The UAE Tourist Visa For?

1. If you are not eligible for a visa-free entry or visa on arrival can apply for a UAE tourist visa.

2. If you are a female below the age of 18, you can only apply for the visa if you are traveling with your parents.

How Long Is The Visa Valid?

You can apply for a multiple visit visa or a single one. You can also choose if you want your visit visa valid for 1 month or 3 months. Ain’t that great?!

Who Can Apply For Your Tourist Visa?

There are two main ways of tourist visa applications. You either get your UAE airline to apply for your tourist visa or go to the hotel/ travel agency route.

The Airline Way

The only aspect here is that you need to fly in with a UAE based airline. This can be any of the 4 carriers- Fly Dubai, Air Arabia, Emirates or Etihad Airways. Each of the airlines have their own set of rules and regulations, so you can choose which airline to fly with depending on the regulations as well as your budget of the airline ticket.

The Agency/ Hotel Way

Want to save up on the tickets or fly with a non-UAE based airline? Then you can get a travel agency, tour operator or your emirates hotel to sponsor your tourist visa too. But be sure that the travel operator of your choice is an authentic one. You can always check that with your local UAE embassy before making any payments.

Now that you know it all, have fun traveling to UAE and exploring all the top destinations, restaurants and attractions in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. From historical sites to amusement parks, UAE has it all!
