Information on how to obtain an entry visa for Tourist and Visitors in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. There are several different ways to get a visit visa to enter Dubai and other emirates of United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Visit Visa – Dubai Visit Visa
A Visit Visa is an entry permit for visitor in Dubai and United Arab Emirates. Dubai Visit Visa is different from a Tourist Visa although they are both entry permits. The difference mostly to do with who the sponsor of the visitor for their trip, the cost, and whether or not the visa is renewable (a tourist visa is, a visit visa is not).
The Visit Visa must be used to enter the UAE within 60 days from being issued, otherwise it expires and you’ll have to get a new one. It can only be used for a single entry, and after exit the visitor must stay away from the UAE for 30 days before re-applying for a new visa (there are some exceptions). A pre-arranged Visit Visa is valid for 30 or 90 days after entry to the UAE, and is not renewable sponsored by company or relative.
