All About the UAE Visa

If you are planning to travel to the United Arab Emirates, the first thing you need to do is to get your UAE visit visa in order.

It’s important for you to know the authorisation requirements that apply to you, so you can prepare for your trip appropriately. Byevisa clarifies the requirements and simplifies the application process to make it easier for you.

This way, you can take care of applying for your visa and have more time to plan the more enjoyable aspects of your trip, like visiting the legendary white marble Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi or marvelling at the luxurious lifestyle of Dubai.

This page covers all the information you need, from how to get your UAE visa online, how long you can stay in the country with a UAE tourist visa and what documents you need.

What Is the Difference Between a UAE e-Visa vs a Visa on Arrival (VoA)?

The UAE Visa on Arrival policy allows people of certain eligible nationalities to travel to the country without getting authorisation first. Instead, when you arrive in the country (for example, when your plane lands at the airport) you stand in line to fill out the necessary paperwork and pay the corresponding fee.

The Electronic Visa is an authorisation for people of all other nationalities. You apply online before you go and receive the document in your email inbox, making it faster and more convenient for you.

With Byevisa, you can take care of everything from the comfort of your home. All you need is an internet connection and a few minutes to fill out our online form.

Applying for your visit visa is easy with Byevisa. Here we walk you through each step of how to get your UAE visa:
