The cost of a 90-day travel visa varies, starting at Dh1,500 and going as high as Dh2,000.
Khaleej Times has learned that the three-month visit visa has been reinstated in the UAE. A long-term 60-day visa was launched for travelers wanting to stay in the country for a longer period of time at the end of last year, replacing the three-month or 90-day visa.
People who are willing to travel to the UAE for 90 days can take advantage of the opportunity, according to a contact center executive at the Federal Authority For Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security (ICP). The executive who answered the call advised them to speak with their travel agents, who may assist them in obtaining a 90-day visit visa.
“There are two different entry permits: a visit visa and a tourist visa, sometimes known as a leisure visa. The length of a tourist visa is either 30 or 60 days. The visit visa is granted for a period of 90 days, according to Subair Thekepurathvalappil, senior manager for inbound and outbound operations at Regal Tours Worldwide. This longer UAE visit visa complements the currently available tourist visa options, which include a 30-day or 60-day stay, and gives visitors more flexibility when making travel plans.
Visitors looking for shorter stays in the UAE have traditionally favored the 30-day and the more recent 60-day tourist visas, which give them plenty of time to explore the nation’s famous attractions and partake in top-notch shopping and dining.
According to Libin Varghese, sales director of Rooh Tourism LLC, residents are unaware of the three-month visa that the government has reinstated.
According to industry experts, anyone can apply for this visa, which is good for both Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
The visitors who choose this entry permit are their family members who already live in the UAE since they want to stay for a longer period of time. As of right now, we have not had many inquiries about it. Consider the case of a student visiting his home country during the summer or the parents of a resident, said Varghese.
