UAE Visa

Attention! The UAE visa does not include Travel Insurance.

Citizens of the Russian Federation and the CIS countries require a visa to enter the U.A.E. Our company is licensed and registered in the UAE immigration authority which allows us to provide tourist and service visas to our guests. Visas are «electronic» as they are completely processed through the online system of the immigration authority. Such visas do not have an original — only a copy which is transmitted via e-mail or fax. Accordingly there is no need to receive the original of such visas at the airport of the United Arab Emirates– you can go to the passport control with a regular copy.

Before the passport control you should definitely pass a retina scan (eye control). This procedure is to prevent the entry of people who were previously deported from the U.A.E. and were blacklisted. After passing this control you receive a stamp on the copy of the visa and you can go to the passport control.

To obtain a tourist or service visa to the U.A.E. please provide with the following documents:

  • A clear and readable scanned color copy of the passport which has to be valid for not less than 3 months from the date of the visa application.
  • A scanned passport size color photograph.

Time for issuing visas

Tourist visas are usually issued within 3 working days. Urgent service can be done within 1-2 working days. It is important to remember that in the UAE there are many religious and secular holidays when the immigration authority is closed; therefore it is desirable so submit the visa request 10 days before the trip.

Immigration Authority weekend: Friday and Saturday

Getting around the country

Visas issued by the immigration authority of the U.A.E. gives you the right to travel throughout the U.A.E. without any restrictions.

Restrictions for issuing visas

  • Visas are not issued to children traveling without their parents (accompanied by third parties). Israeli stamps and visas in the passport are not a reason enough for denying a U.A.E. visa.
  • The U.A.E immigration authority reserves the right to refuse a visa to the applicant, provided the visa fee is not refundable.

Marutzzi Travel & Tourism reserves the right to refuse to supply visa without explanation.
