Dubai Visa – All You Need to Know.

Dubai Visa – All You Need to Know.
Dubai is one of the few developed/developing countries in the world that a Nigerian can get its visa without going to an embassy or any of the elaborate processes usually required to get the visa. This is probably why most Travel Agencies in Nigeria offer the Dubai Visa service, there are actually loads of fakers out there so you have to be careful. Also there are measures in place that make it difficult for Nigerians (especially Males) less than 40 years of age to get the Dubai visa, actually very few (you can count them in fingers of one hand) Travel agencies in Nigeria can get Dubai visa for Nigerians less than 40 years, yours truly is one them few travel agencies in Nigeria that get it, irrespective of age, gender or whatever limitation you might have read of out there,you can see our press release when the restriction came into place here. Actually, a lot of our customers are millennial; we’ve gotten Dubai visas for 19-year-old male Nigerians without any hassles.  Actually getting a Dubai visa can be as easy as paying $100, providing your international passport data page and waiting for 48 Hours to get the 96 Hour Dubai visa.

So this blog post will try to educate you on the correct names for the various Dubai Visa types, their requirements and application processes, what you can or cannot do with them and importantly the cost of getting one.

  8. Your post is interesting and can help people, but i advise that you go a little deeper, educate people on the difference between the various categories of visas, what can you do or cannot do if you hold a specific type of visa, for example i cannot see the difference between your UAE TOURIST VISA and the UAE Urgent 30 Day Tourist Visa, as written by you, could it be that you can process the later visa faster than the former? if so you did not state it,yet you expect people to pay a differentials of almost $35 and i cannot see any difference in your explanation of the two visas apart from the name and the price! Then again why would anybody wants to apply for your UAE Service Visa – Single Entry – Max 14 Days with all its limitations and still pay extra $10 for it, when one could simply apply for the normal UAE tourist visa, I don’t understand o, its either you have not given us all the relevant information or you know something that we don’t, please humor my ignorance and enlighten me.

    Reply
    • Hello Adebola,
      Thanks for your comment; I will respond to your question in the other you presented it.

      UAE TOURIST VISA and the UAE Urgent 30 Day Tourist Visa – the visa you eventually get is the same but one gets processed faster, that is why you pay a little extra for it, It’s pointed out that it is an emergency visa so it’s really like a fast track service. The difference in the names is a clear enough distinction between the two.

      Then again why would anybody wants to apply for your UAE Service Visa – Single Entry – Max 14 Days with all its limitations and still pay extra $10 for it – The consideration isn’t just about the price, most Nigerian agencies are not able to get the tourist visa for Nigerian Males less than 40(we are one of a few that is able to get it) so the service visa is a work around for Nigerian men that are less than 40 years as that limitation does not apply to it, of course no one will go with the service visa if given both options. I hope this answers all your questions

  12. Hello Admin, Please can you share more light on Employment Visa? Please read on.

    I am a web developer and a Nigerian National, I got a job a offer in Al Salamah UAE based company. Fortunately for me I have done all the necessary formalities, like signing and thump printed the document from Ministry of Human Resources & Emiratisation, that my employer sent to me through DHL.

    My employer informed me on the 30th August 2016, that he has applied for my employment visa, then after some weeks he told me that the first application was rejected and he reapplied again the second time, after some weeks again I got information from him that the second application was also rejected again and then my employer reapplied for the third time now last week.

    I tried to ask him the reason for the rejections he told me that he was not told why the rejection and added that no body can question the authority of the government of UAE for the reason of rejecting employment visa.

    Please as a Nigerian National, I have ‘NEVER’ had any criminal record in Nigeria and even in UAE which I visited three months ago, I comported myself very well throughout my stay there.

    Please I need to be guided properly on what I can do to have a successful entrance to UAE.

    Thank you so much for your time.

    Best Regards,

    Chibuike
    From Nigeria.

    • Hello Chibuike,
      We are sorry to hear about your visa rejections. The visa application process for UAE is unique,they have various phases within which if you get something wrong, it will be adequate grounds for rejection, they’ll usually advice on what you got wrong instead of outrightly rejecting it so you can correct the issue and the process can continue. This is however with the exemption of the last and most important phase which is the security clearance phase, there’s a lot of hype around this phase. They do not provide any explanation for their decision at this phase which the outcome is usually an approval or rejection.The speed or outcome of this phase cannot be influenced, so if this is the phase where you get the rejection, then you can only guess about why. Additionally it might be a blanket decision and nothing to do with you specifically, Yor employers PRO should keep at it, I’m positive that once they establish that you are comming to add value they will grant you the visa.

  18. If you issued a dubai 14 days visa, does the days start counting for the day of the visa issuance.

    Reply
    • Hello Charles, thanks for our inquiry. The 14 Day visa is actually valid for 14 days, so the visa becomes invalid after 14 days of issuance. Please not that if you enter Dubai on the last day of it’s validity, you can stay for 14 Days. I hope this answers your question. Cheers
