Visa Information and Tips

The UAE Government issues more than 100 different kinds of visas. What do you plan to do in Dubai? How long do you want to stay? What is your nationality? These are some questions you need to answer to find out the kind of visa you need.

The procedure is not complicated or time-consuming. The authorities have made the visa process as quick and as easy as possible. To start with, you don't need a visa before you arrive if you have are of the following nationalities, or belong to one of the GCC nations:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Bulgaria, Canada, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia,Malta,Monaco, Netherlands,New Zealand, Norway,Poland,Portugal,Romania,San Marino,Singapore,Slovakia,Slovenia,South Korea,Spain,Sweden,Switzerland, The Vatican, United Kingdom and the United States of America.

If your country doesn't appear above, check with your nearest UAE embassy/consulate for updates to the list:


If you don't belong to one of the listed countries or from a GCC nation, you will need a valid visa applied for by a sponsor prior to your arrival in the UAE. Sponsors could be:

  1. Hotels and tourist companies can apply, on your behalf, for
    a. 30-day Tourist Visa, which can be extended to 40 day
