Types of visas

The type of visa you need to apply for depends on the purpose of your trip to the United Arab Emirates. All visas are one entry and are valid for all Emirates (with the exception of the Multiple visa which allows up to 5 entries to the Emirates within a period of up to 30 days). Remember that in case you are going to visit Dubai, then go out to visit another country, then re-enter Dubai (to stay at least 1 day) you must process 2 simple visas or a multiple visa. All those passengers who are on a cruise and touch more than one port of the Emirates need multiple visas. In case of stopovers of less than 12 hours in which you do NOT have to leave the airport, it is NOT necessary to process a visa as it will remain a passenger in transit (except when the arrival and departure airport of the connection are different). In case of passengers who are more than 12 hours on a stopover in Dubai they must process a visa (it must be done even if you do NOT leave the airport).
