Multiple entry tourist visa for all nationalities
A new multiple entry tourist visa can now be issued for all nationalities, in a step that aims to facilitate the process for tourists and visitors. The five-year visa enables tourists to enter multiple times on self-sponsorship and remain in the country for 90 days on each visit, which can be extended for another 90 days.
For more information about the multiple entry tourist visa, please contact the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship.
Tourists can now apply for a 5-year multiple entry visit visa for only AED650. The calculation of the validity of your 5-year visa begins from the date of the first entry into the country using this visa. If you wish to extend your stay in the UE for more than 90 days in a year then you can submit an extension request via the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) website.
