UAE issues a decision regarding obtaining a pre-approved visa upon arrival

ahmed atef - | UAE

The Emirates makes the determination about acquiring a pre-approved visa at the time of arrival.

Emirates has announced that some Indian passport holders would be able to take use of a pre-approved visa-on-arrival facility. Those Indians who are eligible and have already booked their flight with the airline are able to take advantage of this option.


Customers of Emirates will be able to avoid waiting in line when they arrive in Dubai thanks to the new initiative, which will be issued as a single-entry visa valid for 14 days. The application is processed by the Dubai Visa Processing Centre (DVPC), which is a facility owned and operated by VFS Global and designated by Emirates Airline to handle visas for the United Arab Emirates.

Eligibility requirements and expenses

In the United Arab Emirates, Indian nationals who possess a regular passport that is valid for a minimum of six months are eligible to receive a visa upon arrival. Those who hold an Indian passport are required to possess either a visa or a green card from the United States of America, or residency in the European Union or the United Kingdom that is valid for a minimum of six months.


Visas are now available upon arrival at airports in the United Arab Emirates for travelers who meet the requirements. At the immigration booth, once passengers have disembarked from their flights, the visa is normally stamped using the appropriate stamp. The new service allows clients of Emirates to pre-arrange their visas, which significantly reduces the amount of paperwork they need to complete upon arrival and allows them to "breeze through customs." Along with a service fee of $18.50, the project has a total cost of $47.

Emirates has stated that the issuing of visas is still subject to the "absolute discretion of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs."

Instructions on how to apply

After consumers have purchased their tickets, they are able to retrieve them by using the 'Manage an existing booking' feature that is available on the digital platforms of the airline. They can then proceed to click on the link that says "Apply for a UAE visa." They will be taken to the online visa application site for the United Arab Emirates, which is powered by VFS Global Services. This site outlines the requirements, terms, and conditions related to the visa application procedure in order to make it easier for applicants.

The statistics provided by Dubai Tourism indicate that between January and October of 2023, the city of Dubai had the presence of two million overnight guests from India.

There are now nine destinations in India that Emirates serves with 167 flights conducted each week. The cities of Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Thiruvananthapuram are all part of the airline's network in India.
