 FAQ’s About UAE Visa

Why do I need to check my visa when my native country is allowed?

Man, I met two guys at Dubai airport on my previous flight. They both were in a hell of a painful situation. They both came to me and asked if their luggage will be on this flight? I nodded yes if you are on transit or booked it from Dubai. They gave a surprising answer that we are not in transit or coming from Dubai! I inquired then how you are at the airport?

They said it was shocking that they are boarded from (Asian Country) &  let them come from the home country airport, but in Dubai, we are told that the visa we are traveling is not valid.

They now booked the flight from the airport (purchased ticket somehow).

That’s why I request you to always confirm your visa from the official website of the country you are traveling for.

How can I apply for Dubai Resident Visa myself and can work there?
