Before embarking on your journey, it’s crucial to understand the necessary documents for obtaining a UAE visit visa. At Abroad Routes, we simplify the process for you, ensuring a smooth and stress-free application experience.

Valid Passport

Ensure your passport is valid for at least six months from the date of your intended entry to the UAE. An expired passport could lead to visa application rejection, so be sure to renew it if necessary.

Completed Visa Application Form

Filling out the UAE visit visa application form accurately and comprehensively is of utmost importance. Our experts at Abroad Routes will guide you through this process, helping you avoid any errors that could delay or jeopardize your visa approval.

Passport-Sized Photographs

You will typically need recent passport-sized photographs with a white background. The number of photographs required may vary depending on the visa type.

Proof of Accomodation

To ensure a comfortable stay during your visit to the UAE, provide documentation confirming your accommodation arrangements. This could be in the form of hotel reservations or a letter of invitation from a host residing in the UAE.

Flight Itinerary

Present a copy of your confirmed flight itinerary, which outlines your intended travel dates to and from the UAE. It’s essential to have your travel plans in order when applying for the visit visa.

Proof of Sufficient Funds

Demonstrate your ability to cover your expenses while in the UAE. Bank statements or a letter from your employer stating your financial stability are commonly accepted as proof of sufficient funds.

Travel Insurance

Although not always mandatory, having travel insurance that covers medical emergencies and other unforeseen circumstances is highly recommended for your safety and peace of mind.

No Objection Certificate (NOC) from Employer

If you are employed, a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from your employer is often required as evidence that your visit to the UAE is authorized and does not conflict with your work commitments.

Passport Copy and Residence Visa Copy of Host (if applicable)

If you have family or friends in the UAE who will be hosting your visit, their passport copy and residence visa copy may be needed.

Additional Documents for Specific Visas

Depending on the purpose of your visit, additional documents may be required. For example, if you are visiting for business purposes, you may need a letter of invitation from a UAE-based company.

Our Process


Choose Visa Type

Before applying for a UAE visit visa, identify the specific type that suits your travel purpose. The UAE offers various visit visa categories, such as tourist visas, family visit visas, and transit visas. Each category has its own set of requirements and permitted duration of stay.


Choose a Sponsor

For most visit visa categories, you will need a sponsor based in the UAE. The sponsor can be a hotel, a tour operator, a relative, or a friend who is a UAE resident. Your sponsor will be responsible for initiating and coordinating the visa application process on your behalf.


Submit Application

Your sponsor will submit the visa application to the relevant UAE authorities, such as the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) or the UAE immigration department. All the documents must be accurately completed and attached.


Provide Necessary Documents

Generally, you need: valid passport, white-background photos, relationship proof (if applicable), flight bookings, accommodation details, travel insurance. More documents may be needed based on the visa category; check with your sponsor for the full list.


Visa Fee Payment

Visa fees vary depending on the type of visit visa and the intended duration of stay. Your sponsor will inform you about the applicable fees and payment methods. Ensure you pay the fees promptly to avoid any delays in processing your visa.


Get Visa

Upon submission of the visa application, documents and fees, the UAE authorities will review your application. The processing time may vary, but typically it takes a few working days to a couple of weeks. Your sponsor will notify you once your visa is approved.
