Tourist visas are available to people who do not qualify for a visa on arrival or visa-free entry to Dubai (UAE). Individual travellers from all around the globe can apply for a tourist visa. Unless they are travelling with their parents, females under 18 are not eligible to apply for this form of Visa. However, according to a Cabinet resolution published in July 2018, minors under 18 who adults accompany can acquire a free visa for their stay from July 15 to September 15 each year.
Multiple entry tourist visa
All nationalities can now apply for a new multiple-entry tourist visa, which will make the procedure easier for tourists and visitors. For example, tourists with a five-year Visa can enter the nation on self-sponsorship several times and stay for 90 days on each visit, which can extend for another 90 days.
The validity of a tourist visa?
Tourist visas to Dubai(UAE) are available for 30 or 90 days, single entrance or multiple admission, depending on your plans. In addition, the UAE recently facilitated a five-year visa that allows travellers to enter the nation several times on self-sponsorship and stay for 90 days on each visit, which can extend for another 90 days.
Renewing or extending tourist visa
All visit and tourist visas can be renewed for another 30 days after being applied for and granted by the appropriate authorities. Without leaving the country, this is possible. Before the initial renewal expires, visitors and tourists can apply for a second renewal for AED 600 each time.
Overstayers who do not renew their visas will be fined AED 100 for each overstaying day, starting ten days after the Visa expires.
The new extension rule, however, does not apply to the following categories:
- Visitors and tourists from GCC countries.
- Residents accompanying GCC nationals
- Those on special entry permits
- Those with a 96-hour special mission permit
