rawda samy - | UAE

 In 2024, the procedures for obtaining a transit visa for the United Arab Emirates will change.

Here is how you apply for a 48-hour or 96-hour permit during your layover in the United Arab Emirates.

How can I obtain a UAE transit visa in 2024?

You are required to have a transit visa in order to make a stopover in the United Arab Emirates if you are traveling on a long-haul aircraft.

You are able to explore the nation and take pleasure in it in small doses if you have a transit visa, which allows you to avoid sitting about doing nothing at the airport. Who knows, maybe after this little experience you'll decide to return to the country and reside there for a significantly longer period of time.

How you can get a UAE transit visa?

To qualify for a transit visa, you must possess the following:

You must possess a passport that is valid for a minimum of three months.A photograph taken against a white background.You are making a reservation for a ticket to a third destination, which is different from the one you left from.

What are the steps I need to take to apply for a transit visa to the United Arab Emirates?

In today's world, there is a proliferation of travel frauds, and busy travelers are easy and vulnerable targets for these scams.

Remember, as a traveler, only airlines established in the United Arab Emirates can arrange your transit visa before your trip.

If you are considering obtaining a transit visa to the United Arab Emirates, it is imperative that you inform your airline. A travel agency may be able to assist you in obtaining a visa if you were able to arrange your trip through that firm. It is essential that you keep in mind, however, that the airline is the institution that processes all visas.

Your agency and airline representatives will handle everything for you, but it is always best to follow up with them and verify the information with them themselves.

Where can you purchase your tickets?

It is imperative that you purchase your plane tickets exclusively from airlines that are based in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as only airlines based in the UAE are able to submit an application for a transit visa on your behalf.

To visit Dubai, for example, you will need to purchase your tickets from either Emirates Airline or Fly Dubai. Both of these airlines provide flights to Dubai. If, on the other hand, you are interested in traveling to Abu Dhabi, you should purchase your tickets from either Etihad Airways or Air Arabia.

Duration of a UAE transit visa.

The duration for which a UAE transit visa is valid.

Your transit visa's validity is either 48 hours or 96 hours. However, if your transit visa is only valid for 48 hours, you cannot request an extension to 96 hours.

These visas are valid for a period of 48 hours from the time of arrival in the United Arab Emirates and are free of charge. Because the visa cannot be extended or renewed, you are required to leave the country within forty-eight hours of arriving.

You will be required to pay Dh50 for a transit visa that is valid for 96 hours. To keep this visa valid, you must leave the country within 96 hours of entering it. The visa is valid for 96 hours from the time of entry into the country. Furthermore, you cannot renew or extend this visa in any manner.

UAE transit visa fees.

You simply must pay a departure fee of Dh300 before leaving the country, and that is all that is required of you. There will be no further charges collected from you in any way. If any organization or agency asks you to make an additional payment, you should respond with a refusal and keep in mind that this is not permitted. You are able to file a complaint with the airport authorities if they continue to insist on collecting an additional payment from you.
