Citizens of all other countries have to apply for one of the several types of visas that are issued, either from their nearest UAE Embassy, travel agent or online (electronic) as applicable.

There are two main types of visas that the Dubai authorities issue - Visas for visitors and visas for residents.

There are many subtypes of each of these two main types.

Depending on your nationality, what you are going to do in Dubai, and how long you want to stay, you can decide what type of visa to apply for.

Please contact our Amer Service at 800 5111 where you can get all the details about the type of visa you need.

The procedure for visa application depends on whether you are applying for a visit visa or a residence visa?

Your visit visa has to be applied for by a sponsor, who is a person or organization who will be responsible for you while you are here, and will represent you to the authorities as and when required. For a visit visa, your sponsor could be:

  1. - a hotel or tourist company. They can apply, on your behalf, for
    • A 30-Day Tourist Visa, which can be extended to 40 days
    • A 14-Day Service Visa, Or
    • A 30-Day Visit Visa which can be extended for other 30 days.
  2. - Airlines and airlines handlers can apply on behalf of their crew members for a 96-hour transit visa
  3. - Other organizations based in the United Arab Emirates may only apply for Visit Visas and Service Visas
  4. - Individuals (Relatives Or Friends) already resident in the United Arab Emirates may, subject to guidelines, also apply on your behalf for a Visit Visa

If you're going to be in Dubai as an employee, your visa can only be applied for by your employer.

 

If you're not going to be employed and are going to join your spouse or parents who are resident in the UAE, they can be your sponsor and apply for your visa.

In some cases, women who are sponsored by their husbands or fathers may be allowed to work while remaining on the same visa.

Student visas allow a student in one of Dubai's universities or colleges to work as an intern as per academic requirements.

Again, it depends on the kind of visa you are applying for. Please contact our Amer Service at 800 5111
