    I have a GCC residency which expires end of Feb next year. But I wanna travel to Dubai last week of Dec for a week or so In Sha Allah. Will I be facing any issue?

  19. Hello,

    actually some thing is still confusing , which is “Accompanied Information”, my question is
    1 – if we have to apply separately then why should i add my dependent in “Accompanied Information” or is there any extra advantage in terms of acceleration of visa process.

    I have two daughters and a wife.

    Kindly clear my understanding please.


  20. one more question , what should we select in sponsor type, as i am working Company in Saudi Arabia, so shall i select GCC resident or establishment ??

  21. I am a GCC resident. By mistake, I entered the wrong gender for my wife when applying for visa. Her visa is approved. Will it cause a problem at the border?

  22. I would like to ask about the Passport validity, it says here should be 6 month valid from date of your travel? but when you click this link which is state above. it says here 3months valid passport? i would like to ask which one here is the right one? 3 months or 6 months. Im currently working here in riyadh and plan to visit dubai this dec 22, 2017 but my passport expiring on may 20, 2018 so if you count down 6 month less it will be dec 20, 2017 while my travel date is dec 22-25 2017. i will appreciate for your response

    Thank you

    • Hi there are some changes recently done by gdrfa. It is a official website. If they say 3 months. Then that is enough. So if you have 3 month validity you can apply

    • As far as my interpretation, If you hold a residence permit, your passport must be valid for at least 3 months in order to travel into the country as well as admin can provide more better response then me as he is best guider for all legal issues of UAE.

  46. Hi, Really great work you have done for guiding people. Currently I am holding resident visa of Oman and planning for to visit Dubai but I am not clear for few points to fill online application, I will appreciate if you guide for this.I have work visa for Oman and my sponsor is my company and my wife and kid is on family visa these are also finally sponsored by my company So as the condition in online form says “GCC Citizen – Accompanies” application will not be approved for any family member or assistant categories if the sponsor is not travelling along with them.”So how I can apply? as my company is sponsor and how they can travel with me? Or for applying I should mention my company as my sponsor and for my family I should mention myself as sponsor? Second thing for me I should select establishment as sponsor and mention my company name? As I am employee with work visa so GCC resident can not be my sponsor as per my understanding. 3rd my resident card/Iqama is valid for more then 3 months at the time of applying visa but when I am planning for visit it will remain 2 and half months, So may I face any issue at airport due to less than 3 months validity?
    Your prompt response will be highly appreciated.

    • Dear sir, GCC Citizen – Accompanies option is not for us. it is only for the GCC citizen. you have to choose GCC resident. Your company is the sponsor for are the sponsor for your family members. i am not sure about the 2.5 months problem. but i think when you received your entry VISA,you are eligible to enter.

  47. Hi, If I fill form online I can not find my profession “Network Specialist” in list also no any other technical professions are listed so what should be selected here?

  48. Hi thanks for your prompt response. So in my visa application I should select establishment and then sponsor my company name? for family I should mention me as sponsor but on passport of my wife and child sponsor name is my company name so no issue? How much charges will be deducted for each applicant?

  59. a GCC resident and am applying for UAE visa along with my family. I already had uploaded the pic of my wife alongwith her iqama and passport copy but they are asking for Sponsored Passport page1, person pic and gcc residency..what else do i need to upload for this?

  60. Hi I am a GCC resident travelling from Dammam to Dubai via Abu Dhabi (ALGOUIFAT PORT border). Tried to apply through but the payment site is not working. Then I tried with ‘’. Applied together for myself and for wife on 9th June,2018 (Me as Primary Request). My request status shows as RECEIVED, but wife’s “RETURNED FOR CORRECTION” saying “Sponsor’s visa does not exist”. For family already attached Passport ( First & Last Pages and mine’s), Both Iqama, and family Photo. Still the remark shows “Sponsor’s visa does not exist”. I waiting for my VISA so I can attach the same visa for family’s request.
    I applied with option of Establishment as the technical professions are available only with Establishment selection. Wife’s Sponsor given my name and the profession as HOUSEWIFE. Please let me know anyone’s has the same experience.

      • Admin,
        Still didn’t receive visa and it’s over 8 days after application. Is there any option to cancel the visa application ?


        • It is usual some time it will take 2-3 weeks to issue a VISA. pls chat with Amir service about your issues or login to your account and try to cancel your VISA.

          • Admin, Thanks for your feedback.

            I tried to cancel visa application as my plan to travel (during Eid holidays) failed since the VISA not ready. There is no option to cancel the application ( I contacted the authority) however once the visa issued we can cancel it. My doubt in case if we cancel the visa, is it refundable or not ?

            Would appreciate for your feedback

  61. Dear Admin , When I choose Establishment on;y I am getting my profession and House wife . and child what we have to choose . pls guide me .thanks

      • Hi…I am from KSA. My husband applied for UAE visiting visa on 25th July 18 for himself ,me and our daughter. His visa was processed immediately. We got a response on the other two applications just today. For mine they are asking to upload sponsored passport page 2,and for our kid they demand sponsored passport page 4. We are from India, the first page of Indian passport bears the colour photo and other personal datas, then only the last page of the passport bears other identification details. All other’s are blank pages for visa stamping. So I don’t get what do they mean by page 2 and 4. Which pages of my husbands’ passport are we to upload.Kindly respond.
