Instructions to fill the application form to Apply for E-Visa of UAE (Dubai) for GCC Residents are given below.

  • Emirate: Select the city where you want to travel first. Keep in mind you would only be able to enter to UAE through the entry ports of that city. You have 5 options to select from Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, Ras Al Khema and Fujairah. I have selected Dubai above.
  • Port of Arrival: There are many ports of arrivals to Dubai. I am traveling by Air, so I have selected Airport. If you are traveling by road, you can select any other port of arrival.
  • Type of Sponsor: If you are working in a company or establishment, select the “Establishment”. “GCC Citizen” options is only for the domestic workers. Select “GCC Resident” if you are applying for your children.
  • Name: Enter all your details as shown in the below screenshot. After writing your name in English, just click on the “T” icon given below. It will automatically translate it to Arabic.
  • Profession: Profession must be selected from the profession list given in the system. Just start writing your profession, suggestions will appear on your computer screen. If you are applying for a visa of your child, start writing “CHI” there and Child profession will appear on your screen. Similarly, “Housewife” should be selected as a profession of your wife.
  • Residence Issuance Date: It is the date when your Iqama was issued. This date is normally not mentioned on Iqama itself. If you are subscribed to the MOI services, you can easily check this date online. Recommended: How to Check Iqama Issuance Date Online?

Now you need to fill your contact details in UAE. If you are staying in a hotel, just write their address and phone number in the form. If you are traveling along with your legal dependents, you need to mention them here. However, it should be kept in mind that you need to apply for a separate visa for each passport holder in your family.

Add applicant's (child's) name, D.O.B, religion etc. In the profession of the applicant (child) add “not employed” as a profession and then in relationship to sponsor, add “son/daughter”.

  • Ayu Kade

    Hallo, did u receive ur visa now???

  • Muhammad Omer

    I called every single office in Dubai Ministry of Interior and their visa section as well as the online chats but in vain. To be on safe side, I re-applied for the visa and paid the amount again however, did not got the visa till the day I was to travel. I however, reached airport but Gulf air refused to gave me a boarding pass till I get a valid visa. I then spoke with Gulf Air’s customer services supervisor at the airport who then spoke with someone in dubai immigration and got it corrected in their system. I travelled to dubai using my visa (with incorrect passport number) while the second application is still showing in process (till today). Suggest to get it checked with the airline as they have a quicker approach to immigration office and can get it resolved.

  • Mohammed Rafiuddin

    1) Check in the correct email address which you gave in your application, also in spam. You can download your visa if approved, from status enquiry at ednrd.ae (if you download application form, it is not visa, so you have to wait)

    2) I have no knowledge

    3) GCC Resident, with sponsor type, GCC resident for your family

  • Farhan Khan

  • sk

  • sk

    almost all professions are available if you are selecting dubai as port of arrival but if you have any problem than you can travel via abu dhabi…go by flight to abu dhabi and than take taxi or bus for dubai. its not illegal to go anywhere in UAE once you enter.

  • sk

    your visa came or not?

  • sk

    in GCC residents

  • sk

    got your visa?

  • pavel novotny

    If you are applying for yourself, the sponsor should be your company. So it is establishment. If you intend to bring your family. The sponsor is under your name.

  • pavel novotny

    don’t wait on the email that you provide. you can check it on the website that you apply online. go to status. enter your birth date and passport number if you forget your reference number. it will appear on the right corner the pdf evisa if it is already approved.

  • pavel novotny

    I think private driver are not allowed for entry visa in dubai. I check online mostly of higher profession only allowed like doctors, engineers and managers. I think what you see is under accompanied member profession like a family member traveling with a professional of GCC resident.

  • pavel novotny

    you can check it on the status section of gdrfa website. if you forget your reference number. just put your passport number and birthdate. thats it.

  • pavel novotny

    you attached the photo of the applicant and his/her passport. It has nothing to do with the establishment. Its the applicant.

  • pavel novotny

    I really want to know if you have no issue with your status when you enter Dubai. I have the same problem with you. Last time, I applied online visa to Oman as I am Resident Engineer in GCC. I got approved within the day and the time I arrived at Oman, I was refuse in entry they were really sorry on me you know why? because I came from Singapore and not in any GCC countries. I came from UAE then Singapore for a short trip then to Oman. So in your case Im so worried if they find out your point of arrival from. It will really affect your entry. It appears in your application where you came from.

  • MT

    I am living and working in Saudia. I have a plan to visit UAE and will travel by road. I am applying online visa but at the start I saw Sponsor Information.What does it means? What I put in sponsor type, Nationality and adress? I am confused about it. Please guide me for this in detail.

  • MT

    “GCC Residents” or “GCC Citizen – Accompanies” application will not be approved for any family member or assistant categories if the sponsor is not travelling along with them.

    What is meant by this? If I am working in company in Saudi. In this case my company is my sponsor type establishment? In this case this point is not valid for me? My understanding is correct ?

    This point is valid if my family is also traveling with me because I that case I will be the sponsor for them as Sponsor type GCC resident. My understanding is correct?

    please guide

    when translated means please upload the uae visa of the sponsor. Should my visa get approved first, then theirs will be approved.

    How many days it takes for visa to be approved. any idea. I sent mails to info (at)emaratech.ae still no reply.

    There is no clarity on this. Should have gone with an agent rather than online.

  • Rouk

    I’m living in Muscat, and I need to know Who should be the sponsor
    for my family in applying for online dubai visa, noting that in their iqama the
    sponsor is my establishment

  • Mohammed Rafiuddin

    In FAQ of ednrd.ae, it is clearly stated that you have to enter according to port of arrival approved in your visa, so for Ghuwaifat, which comes under Abu Dhabi Emirate, Dubai Airport won’t work, as it comes under Dubai emirate.

  • Mohammed Rafiuddin

    For your family, sponsor should be you, but it is strange why sponsor is stated as establishment for your family iqama.
    In Saudi, it is sponsor’s (husband’s name) in Iqama for family

  • Rouk

    Yes it’s strange but it’s like that in Oman

  • RAJNISH TRIPATHI

    did you applied and got the UAE visa ??

    2. One of my friend got visa for his wife (from Oman for UAE) after mentioning company name under sponsor. But my query is that per Visa condition how company will go with her {{Visa condition- “GCC Residents” or “GCC Citizen – Accompanies” application will not be approved for any family member or assistant categories if the sponsor is not travelling along with them.}}

    Hi, I have applied UAE visa for me once and i got approval in 12 hours. after that I have applied for my wife & daughter and posted my visa copy. But today is 11th day, when i have checked the status it is listed as “Application posted”. I tried to call them and send email but no response. I have checked payment status, it is also ok. What I need to do please suggest me. Thanks

  • mutikaya29

    also same for me, if you check it is written “place of issue” so I think no need to worry about this. I suggest you to take copy of application form that you have received via email and it is clearly mention your port there.

  • Tarik Latif Chaudhry

  • Ivy Lai

    Hi, did you send their applications on 24/Aug? I have sent mine on 24/ Aug early morning, and till today the status is “Application posted”, nothing change… We plan to leave on 8/Sep.

  • mutikaya29

    I sent 23rd of Aug, and still “Application Posted”. I am planning to enter 9/Sep. But if they dont approve, it will be not possible to take permit at the border. What is the meaning of “Application posted’? Anybody know this? meaning of process?

  • shafeek

    Issue place is no problem.. even I got visa issued front abudhabi airport.. but I travelled through guifat without any issue

  • Ivy Lai

    They told me it means under process, just wait for their email. But they couldn’t tell me when they will approve my visa, that’s very annoying.

  • yahiya

    Hi Burjees,

    A lot of ppl had experienced the same issue, but no one posted the solution in any of the forums , till now the only solution is came across is to select the profession closest to our profession. in your case now if the visa is approved you can travel

    regards,
    yahiya

  • Tarik Latif Chaudhry

    Dear
    I have applied UAE VISA for my family. They are asking to re-upload documents ” Pic, passport page 1 and ID card/Residence copy” again and again without mentioning the issue.

    any solution to this problem? Thanks

  • Aparna Ketan

    Hi .. We had applied for UAE visa online and have received our visa but problem is while applying we intended to go by road and hence had selected Al ghoufiat border as the port of entry but after later came to know that Saudi visa application is closed. So now we are planning to fly to Dubai. In the visa entry port is shown as Abu Dhabi. Can we travel by air and enter from Dubai with same visa ??? Please clarify.

  • Nabil Huda

    Thanx for the Answer … By the way were you able to find the exact same profession as per your Iqama, if not did you put a closest & was there any problem ?

  • Nabil Huda

    How come U know that Saudi Visa Application to UAE is closed … I got my Visa Two Days ago … As for the Port of Entry .. I m also Going by Road & enter Al ghoufiat border as the Port of Entry , but the Visa says “Place of Issue” is Abudhabi Airport … As informed by other fellow blog members, we have to still enter by Al ghoufiat border !

  • Ivy Lai

    Hi, could you please tell me when you sent the application? I sent mine on 24/aug, but till today it’s still “application posted”. I plan to leave on 8/sep. Thanks.

  • Aparna Ketan

    Hi Nabil.. We enquired last week with one of the agents in Doha and he said Saudi visa is closed . Can u give me the details of the agent for doing Saudi visa ?

  • Nabil Huda

    I submitted on 1st September & i got it by the end of the Day 02nd September !

    I applied for Al Ghouifat (Saudi Abudhabi border) as Port of entry !

  • Aparna Ketan

    Can any1 give me details of an agent in Doha who would make Saudi visa for me and fly in this week?? Would like to drive down to Dubai this Friday ??

  • Nabil Huda

    Oh .. You are taking about GCC Residents visa to Saudia … Yeah Due to Hajj, it is closed.

    I was talking about UAE Visa from Saudia , My Apologies !

  • Nabil Huda

    Dear Yahiya & Burjees, did you guys got any confirmation if the visa is issued on the iqama but profession is not same due to unavailability on particular Port of entry … is it going to be an issue ?

  • Burjees

    Yes but there is a point written on visa that if your profession found to be changed on arrival. You will not allowed the entry. Thats the issue now

  • Ivy Lai

    Thanks for your reply. Hope I could get it before I leave!

  • Burjees

    No bro Still no info from anyone who have got the entry with this issue

  • Nabil Huda

    Dear Burjees,
    Did you get your Issue sorted out ???

  • Aparna Ketan

    Thanks for your reply Nabil ..

  • Aparna Ketan

    As now I cannot get Saudi visa, Can travel to Abu Dhabi by air with the same visa?? Plz clarify ?

  • yahiya

    One of my friend had experienced the similar issue before, when he selected Dubai airport his profession was listed but when he selected Abu Dhabi he could not find his profession in the list , so he selected a different profession and visa was issued he traveled and entered UAE.

    Now regarding the other issue about the Port of Entry, I got a reply from one of the user on a different Forum, he selected Port of Entry as Dubai airport and entered UAE from Gouifat border without any problem.

  • yahiya

  • yahiya

    I have been reading lot of posts for the past couple of days for such issues, and by that i can say Yes you should be able to travel without any issues. As long as you have visa to enter UAE

  • yahiya

    Guyz, I have another problem now, I applied for VISA and selected POE as Gouifat border, I got an email from MOI that to reupload a document whereas in the email they did not mentioned what document they need.
    Remarks for further processing : يوجد للشخص تأشيرة منتهية يرجى سدادها 124/23015/49/127950. Other / أخرى

    The above are the remarks from them , I dont understand what exactly they want I have tried calling them on the given number ,emailed them but no response till now.

  • Burjees

    Dear yahya
    Thanks for sharing info. I lived in UAE for 3 years. It is for sure that we can enter UAE without any issue from any airport or border if we visa.

  • Burjees

    There is no issue of entering uae from different airport or border. But You better call to ghoufat border and ask here is the number of ghoufat border uae
    00971 24462244

  • yahiya

    Yeah, i should have selected Dubai airport and select the profession same as of my iqama,

    But since it is not giving much options under abu dhabi POE, I selected Program analyst as my profession where as on my Iqama it is General systems analyst :p

    But you received the visa even by selecting a different profession right ?

  • shafeek

    they need colour copy.. may be urs is black and white…

  • shafeek

    In Google chrome open the application page for visa in two different tabs. (Same page in two tabs) then in one of the page fill everything other than your profession. The go to next tab and in there just select sponsor type as gcc resident and go back to previous tab where you entered all the details..then again Go to the other tab and unselect the sponsor type where you put gcc resident and make it select. Now you go back to the tab again where you entered all the details and your profession should appear now Insha Allah.

  • yahiya

    Hi Shafeek,

    It worked …when I tried the above solution you gave.

    but I have already applied for the visa and got an response from MOI to reupload a document. but their message is not clear to me what they are asking for.

  • shafeek

    post it here.. someone might be able to help… post arabic

  • sk

    Dear friends i want to share you that i have already talked to the higher management and emigration officers of Dubai Airport and abu dhabi airport and they says that your visa information will available only on the port which you have selected as port of arrival and you cannot enter from any other port.. so dont take risk because if you will go by car from al ghuwaifat and if they won’t allow you to enter than you will lose your exit re entrty…take care and enjoy your vacation…and sorry for my poor english…

  • sk

    take the application copy also with you which you have submitted for visa if you have mention al ghuwefat as port of arrival

  • yahiya

    Hi SK,

    But as i mentioned earlier i got a confirmation from one of the person on other forum , he traveled by selecting a different port, also in many other posts i have noticed Port is not important. below is the message i received in other forum

    Hi Yahiya,

    You can just select Dubai Airport and apply. It doesn’t matter even if u arrive at the Guwaifat border. They just need to see your visa. I did the same for myself and family and it went through without any hassles.

    Happy journey.

  • yahiya

    Can you please share with me any contact no. u have which could help me to resolve my present issue.

    nobody is able to give me clear answer. And the response I got from MOI isn’t clear either. they just saying reupload, what to reupload nobody could answer

  • sk

    brother i didnt save any number but i have dialed around 100s of numbers and wasted 1000 of riyals just on calls…and they reply me the same which i mention in above comment…but i am saying what they said to me… personally i have no experience about this issue thats why i cancel my plan to go by car and already booked the ticket..if anyone has multiiple exit rentry than he can try from al ghuweifat border …and if he can enter UAE on these condition than he can inform others on any forum …make any watsapp group or he can upload the info here…this is my suggestion but i know mostly people here are looking for help but dont have time to help other…

  • yahiya

    same here , even i call many numbers but no proper response till now, actually nobody know the procedures and stuffs, its seriously very bad service i chat on moi site and they gave me diff no.s everytime when I call on those no. they give another no. its just round robin

    I made a biggest mistake by applying online, last time i applied online , it took long time for visa I traveled and took visa on arrival ..and then after coming back to saudi I got an email with the visa lolz…

  • Burjees

    Yes my profession is qc engineer but i selected agricultural engineer and i got visa

  • mutikaya29

    Ivy, any response? I am still waiting and it is interesting that i have already mine but they are not responding to my family? Reject or re-upload or anything else…!

  • Ivy Lai

    No, still the same “application posted”. I have chatted with different MOI online support agents. Either they asked me to wait or gave me phone numbers that no one answered!

  • yahiya

    Hello Guyz,

    Finally after 2 days of headache I got to see that my visa is approved.

    Now I need to apply for my family, I have read few posts where ppl suggesting to apply first for primary applicant then dependents, can anybody explain why we shall do like this, because I have notice on my visa it has a section Accompanied by , where is says Wife and Children NONE. so that mean we could have applied for family at the same time

  • YaraYafi

    Hello,

    i applied to visa but i got a reply that some documents are missing that i need to upload,

    ,the first is ” Sponsored GCC Residency”and in the notes they write “PLEASE ATTACH A PICTURE OF THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE SPONSOR” if am not mistaken its my father Iqama photo( هوية الكفيل ), because he is my sponsor in Saudi arabia (am i right ?)

    the second one i did not understand what they mean by it is “New Sponsor Passport – Residency Page ” ?! so what that mean? is that in the passport or what ?!
    if anyone could help me cause our flight reservation very near and we did not know that it will become complicated like this , thank you very much in advance.

  • Tarik Latif Chaudhry

    Dear..
    If your sponsor is your father / Husband / wife, attach his Passport copy, Iqama Copy and UAE VISA, if he is travelling with you to get it urgently.

    i uploaded my documents 3 times but finally i used this way…

    Hope it may help others.

  • Tarik Latif Chaudhry

    AA Guys

    after getting UAE VISA for me and my family, is there any other requirements while passing through Al goufat border by road??

    Like car insurance etc etc.

  • mutikaya29

    Dear Yahiya, did you mean that you apply online and you were able to enter without receiving your online visa? i have also applied and waiting for my family visa from 14 days and no response only written as “application posted”. If they allow to take visa on border why are applying online bro?

  • yahiya

    Hi Mutiyakaya,

    That was in Jan 2016, now they have stopped issuing VOA, you will have to apply online n go or else get from the agent which will cost much higher.

    14 days is very long time did you try to contact MOI. Keep checking the status online

  • mutikaya29

    I have tried to contact them via phone the response is only “wait”. I cant understand that my visa approved in 12 hours but my family still waiting, really not logical! if you have any contact email or number can you share me?

  • Nabil Huda

    Hi,

    Can you please confirm me one thing …. What is written as your Visa Place of Issue (as i also Applied for Al Ghoifat as entry point) and the E Visa do not mention Port of Entry but the Place of Issue which say Abudhabi Airport.

  • S.K

    I want to cancel the online visa application, Anyone have any idea how to do that. It’s been three days application keep coming back to me for “More documents required for processing” with the objection “Occupation doesnot match with the rules” for 3 times straight. They are not rejecting my application. At this stage I’m unable to upload more documents and just want to refund my Visa Fees and they are irritating me again and again asking for more documents instead of rejecting it once and for all.

    What Happened is that, I applied for Sharjah Visa. I have a land surveyor designation but on my Qatri ID card, My Occupation is written as “Employee”. And I didnt knew about my Wife and children visa should only be applied after My visa gets approved. I applied for us 3 simultaneously. Mine application is stuck at äpplication in process and document reupload loop while their application stucks at application in process loop for last 4 days. Without having any Idea how to terminate the visa application and re-apply once again.

  • yahiya

    Hi Nabil,

    Not a problem, you can enter through Al Gouifat border even if it AbduDhabi airport as POE on visa. BTW even on my visa it is Abdu Dhabi airport while applying i selected AL gouifat.

  • Farhan Noor

    Hello Yahiya,
    your posts have ben very helpful. Can you please provide the contact of the person who said it would be ok to travel to Guwaifat border with visa issued from Dubai.
    My situation: I have already got valid UAE visa from Dubai and when I called Dubai authorities, they said I need to apply through Gouifet as entry port if I want to travel by road. So I went ahead and submitted another visa application with Guwaifat as entry port. Just few hrs ago, I got the reply from the evisa system that I already have a valid UAE visit visa. Does that mean I can travel from Guwaifat border?
    If you can message me your other contact details, it would be very helpful for the users on this forum.
    Thankyou!!

    Hi Nabil
    I had a real struggle to get the visa. Mine took 12 days to complete, and my wifes didn’t get processed until now. I had to reapply. However, the authority to issue visas for Abu dhabi emirate is in the Abu Dhabi Airport. I spoke about this with an immigration officer. So this is not a problem. Actually after relentless calls to the UAE MOI and the Immigration offices, I learnt that you can apply to any emirate and enter through Alghoufiat if approved.

  • najeeba

    My sponsor is my husband.I wanted to know for “sponsored passport page 1” i should upload my husbands passport and not my passport. Am i right?

  • Nabil Huda

    Thanx Sj,

    I wish i had the Last part of Information before applying for Visa, My Profession is available for Dubai but i have to settle for a closest one for AbuDhabi … Now i hope it won’t be an issue!

  • Ivy Lai

    Hi Sj,

    Could you please let me know when you submitted your wife’s application? I applied on 24/Aug and plan to travel on 8/sep, but till now, the status is still “application posted”. When you called them, did they tell you they are processing your wife’s visa? They just asked me to wait, very annoying and helpless!

  • Tarik Latif Chaudhry

    Dear Nabil

    same with me… just mentioned issue place.. but i checked with agent in UAE that no hard / fast rule for port of entry neither its mentioned on E-VISA.

    else lets c when we will reach there. Thanks

  • YaraYafi

    thank you very much for your help,
    i attach the passport copy and the Iqama copy but not the visa because my father did not get the visa yet, and it worked,
    very much appreciate your help.

  • sj

    hi ivy..im sorry that you are going through the same torment i did. i applied for my visa with family on the 23rd of aug. my visa got approved last sunday nd the next day my sons nd daughters were processed after i uploaded my approved visa. however for my wife, from the time i posted on 23rd till now the status is the same “application posted”. i called them many times but it was no use. the best place to get any info is the abu dhabi airport immigration, as they are the ones processing the visa. the number is 0097124462244.anyways they rarely answer.yesterday i applied for my wife again and uploaded my visa page as well. got the visa today. the old application is still in posted stage. i think its better you do the same. whenever i got the chance to speak to their support they kept asking me to wait.

  • sk

    upload your passport copy page 1 and last page in “sponsored passport page 1 and 2 ” and your photo, Iqama copy, and in sponsored passport page 3 upload your husband passport copy and in sponsored passport page 4 upload your husband’s UAE visa copy (if already issued)

  • sk

    if car is on your name than no problem..just go direct to the border..there they will ask you to pay i think 250 sr for UAE insurance… if car is not on your name than you need an authorization letter from maroor… but the insurance policy on UAE border is the same in both condition

  • sk

    to apply new visa you have to cancel the first visa…but dont cancel now beacuse its already late ..they will not issue you a visa before eid…

  • sj

    Hi Ivy.. I replied yesterday to you but for some reason cant find my post. to sum up.. I had the same problem you have. I applied on the 23rd for me and my family and i got the visa 4 days back. and the next day my kids got it. My wife application still says posted. After trying to call many offices all of them said that its in process irrelevant of what the system says. this didn’t seem logical though… I didnt want to take the risk so I applied again on monday 5th by uploading my approved visa as well. I got the visa last night.. the old application for my wife still says posted. If you need to call, try +97124097464. This is the Abudhabi Airport Immigration, and they are the ones who issue the visa. I am sorry that you have to go through the trouble is was going through…try applying again for ur wife…. good luck…

  • najeeba

    Thank you.

  • sj

    Try calling +97124097464. This is the abudhabi airport immigration. Get someone to speak in Arabic, as the phone is rarely answered and in case it is answered, 90% chances are it will be only an arab speaking guy. The will be the ones issueing the visas.. However, posted doesn’t mean its under process. For dependents, it is compulsory to upload your approved visa. If it is in process, they would have asked you to upload this. I’d suggest to reapply again. I was in the same situation, me and my kids got the visa but for my wife, it was ‘application posted.’ i reapplied and got it the next day.

  • mutikaya29

    Thank you for information but why i have to apply again.? Why i will pay money again? I already upload my visa copy and their system is not working properly and fairly. I i have made a mistake when filling form and applying visa online, they can reject or give me an answer! If they gave me visa, they have to give also my dependents becuase they are traveling with me. They are really stupid!! I am thinking that i deserve a reply from them, negative or positive since i did everything what they asked….

  • Narendra

    There is some confusion going on over here. There are 5 GCC countries whose Resident permits (RP) are accepted by UAE for issuing eVisa (GCC Residents entry permit) where you dont need to show any other documents other than RP and passport. Each GCC country issues RP in a different format. I am Bahrain resident, in Bahrain, Establishment (company) is the sponsor for me, it gives work-RP for me and for my family again my company is sponsor and gives family-RP. In the RP my occupation is clearly mentioned and for family who are not supposed to work under family-RP, it does not mention any occupation. I cannot sponsor my family, for that mater even relatives, my company sponsors my relatives as well. At present I can sponsor a maid subjected to certain criteria.
    When any one is applying for UAE visa you have to enter the same details entered in your passport and RP, then there will be no rejection or conflict either on application online or at the port of entry, as those are the documents you are submitting for issue of visa and also you will show them at the port of entry. When I apply for UAE eVisa under the GCC residents application tab, sponsor type is Establishment for me and my family as they are sponsors mentioned in RP. When establishment is selected 514 profession appear and I have my profession mentioned in it, which is same as mentioned in RP and I select it. In case of my family, not employed is selected as nothing is mentioned in RP. When Establishment is selected then the following criteria does not apply for me or my family – ( “GCC Residents” or “GCC Citizen – Accompanies” application will not be approved for any family member or assistant categories if the sponsor is not travelling along with them). I have to apply separate applications for me and my family and not as accompanying.
    I see from the forum Qatar has the same format of RP. Those who are not selecting establishment as sponsor type they are not getting the required profession. I dont know what type of RP is issued in other GCC countries. I can see from the forum that Saudi arabia is mentioning the person with work visa as the sponsor for their family. I hope that is what is mentioned in RP. Then they have to select GCC resident as the type of sponsor for family and naturally he has to accompany them and also profession will be limited. If family is professional and working then they will have a work visa and RP from their establishment. Basically we have to enter the same exact details mentioned in the RP on the online application.
    Hope some of the confusion is cleared.

  • sj

    Hi mutikaya… you wont believe the number of times I called them.. and most of the time i was kept on hold…it seems that they had an issue with their system, because there were frequent downtimes on 21st and 22nd when I was trying to apply. On certain times, I clicked on my family application and it displayed the application of somebody else. When I spoke to Abu Dhabi immigration, they told me that there is no application with my wife’s passport, and the MOI said that it is in process and to wait. Instead of paying 100 to 150 riyals on calling them, it is better to reapply. I guess we can inform MOI to cancel that particular application and request a refund..

  • Ivy Lai

    Thank you!

  • Ivy Lai

    Hi sj,

    Thank your very much for your reply and help. I tried the number many times, no one answered the phone.

    My husband has a European passport, so he never needs a visa for UAE. We have been to UAE for more than 10 times, including 4 times driving from Riyadh. I have never had problems getting a visa on arrival. This is my first time with this e visa system. I don’t know why they keep my case hanging there. I contact them everyday through their online chat, but what they could do is the same like me, checking the application status and asking me to wait. Or they gave me different numbers to call, but almost no one answered, or once I succeeded, but they still asked me to wait. It’s very frustrated and I felt so helpless. We have cancelled all the hotel bookings, otherwise, we have to pay penalty as no show. So in the end, I guess we will stay in Riyadh for the coming holiday.

    Enjoy your holiday! If you need any information for driving to UAE, don’t be hesitate to contact me. I am very willing to help you.

  • Sa

    How long does it take for visa process. I had applied yesterday it’s been 24 hrs I have not received the visa yet.

  • Alaa

    Hi
    I submit my visa as GCC resident since 24 August, until now it’s under process .
    I shall travel tomorrow.
    Any Idea what shall i do????
    I called moi to many times and the answer is keep waiting!!!!!

  • Alaa

    Hi Ivy
    I submit also my apple cation on 24 August, still I didn’t get until now.
    How about yours?

  • Ivy Lai

    No, status is the same “application posted”. We have cancelled all the hotel bookings. I don’t have any hope to get my visa, unless there is miracle!

  • Alaa

    It’s written application in process

    And I don’t know whether I cancle the hotel booking or not

  • Ivy Lai

    I have no choice. If I don’t cancel, I will need to pay for the no show penalty.

  • Alaa

    Ok good luck and nice talking to u

  • Ivy Lai

    Good luck to you, too!

  • mutikaya29

    Dear Alaa, the same thing happened for me. I got my visa in 12 hours, but for may family, i applied on 23 August and still waiting. There are many people comply about same thing and interesting but almost same date 22-23-24 august. I dont understand that, i already get visa and my family is my dependents they already have eveything for visa and I also uploaded my visa to the system for their review. They have really stupid system and i dont believe that they are working carefully. So I am thinking to cancel all my reservations today if i could not my visa.

  • Mohammed Rafiuddin

    If you have applied for travelling date in this week, then it is highly unlikely to be issued before you travel, due to Eid rush. You might be lucky, if it is issued.

    Best of luck !!!

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Hello,

    I am a GCC resident,filipino national,I applied visa for October 21,2016.

    The application is approved but inclusives dates is not the same with what i requested they approved September 10,2016 to October 09,2016.

    Does anyone faces same problem?Please help.

    Thanks

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Brother,

    I have the same problem.have you find solution with this?

    Please let me know.

  • ZA

    I applied for Visa on 22nd Aug for travel date of 10th Sept (today) yet I didn’t receive my Visa. The status is still ‘Application Posted’ and after repeated calls to the UAE immigration I couldn’t get any answer. I lost my money and also ruined my Eid holidays. In today’s era going through this hassle shows clearly UAE visa system is lagging way behind than most sophisticated nations. Frustrated and helpless at the end of all this ordeal.

  • Ivy Lai

    No, status still the same “application posted”!

  • Ivy Lai

    Hi, I think we are all victims of their lousy e visa system. We should get together to fight for the refund!

  • Hi Sandeep, has anyone answered your question. I am wondering the same question if no visas will be issued this week. It is such a waste of money!

  • Does anyone know if any tourist visas for Dubai are being issued this week? Also is it a system that issues these or a person/embassy?

    I’m wondering if visas will only be issued until 17th? Very nervous and rather disappointed about all the money that is being spent.

    Anyone know the answer?

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Dear Burjees,

    Did you solve your problem?

    I have the same problem,worst is approved visa validation date is not the same with what I wrought iny my application.I plan to enter UAE on October 21,2016 and the approved dates was September 10,2016 to October 09,2016.

    Hope you can give some inputs,.

  • obaid

    Dubai visaes are issued , they are open all days , so go ahead and applied , I applied for my family on 10th friday and got it on saturday!!

  • We applied for my parents on September 4th and it’s yet to be approved. The DNRD site just keeps saying “processed”. It’s been over week and I’m just not sure why it’s taking so long.

    Thank you for getting back to me obaid. Hope you enjoy with your family!

  • Isbah Waseem

    Me and my friend are GCC residents and we wish to visit dubai for vacations but our sponsors ( our fathers ) would not be travelling with us so where are we supposed to apply for such VISA’s? Any help would be great !

  • Sandeep Baburaj

    just relax..you will get your visa,holidays dont affect visa issue..i got mine one day before the travel date.

  • ZA

    Try applying through Emirates or flydubai (tourist visa).

  • ZA

    Have you got the visas? I applied on 22nd Aug yet it says ‘Application Posted’.

  • ZA

    I agree! Apparently you cant cancel visa online, the MOI chat person gave me a number that’s not reachable! Such a disappointing and pathetic system!

  • ZA

    Well I was supposed to travel on 10th and the online status is still ‘Application Posted’.

  • Sohail Imtiaz

    I need little help if someone traveled to dxb on this eid please tell me how much dxb entry visa cost online for gcc residents. And if it is necessary to have RP 6 month old

  • RV

    What should be the Date of Expiry for Iqama when fill appliacation

    Is it exactly printed in Iqama which shows 5 year validty

    Or as per MOI website which is 1 year validity

  • Sandeep Baburaj

    Visa is issued by a system… Don’t worry

  • Nabil Huda

    Enter the Date of 1 year Validity, coz this is the actual Expiry date .. the Card Date is valid for Card itself only !

  • Nabil Huda

    I applied on Thursday Noon and got it on Friday Night … Surely thr will be some Personnel involvement but they must be working on automated system!

  • Nabil Huda

    Fill in the Nearest Profession from you Iqama Profession !

  • mutikaya29

    I am also one of the victims of this system. I applied for mine 17/08 and got it 18/08 then i have applied to my family on 23/08 but now still ‘Application posted”. They have to refund our moneys since we are suffering from their stupid system. I am 100% sure that if i applied again i would get it on same day. Pls inform me if you get any way to refund our money.

  • Mudassir Iqbal

    I hope by now you must have completed your visit ?

  • Miranda Penaflorida

    As far as i know, The inclusive date mentioned is the time allowance you will enter UAE. If you fail to enter UAE before or on October 9, 2016 then your visa expires.

  • Ikram Rao

    Hi Steve and Members
    Please advice
    What is the better way for apply UAE Dubai Visa
    1-Emirates (VFS Global)
    2-www.ednrd.ae

    I am GCC resident and I will arrive Dubai from Karachi and then travel to Jeddah, so should I apply from Saudi Arabia or Pakistan?

  • Brother, if you have Emirates Air Ticket I would suggest you to take visa from the Emirates Office. If you have sometime, this is the most appropriate way. You can check details from the emirates office in Saudi Arabia or Pakistan. They do process visas manually.
    If you don’t have enough time, you can apply online following the procedure mentioned above. But there are so many problems with this process so I would suggest you to go for the other procedure.

  • Ikram Rao

    Thank You brother Steve for your reply
    Yes I have Emirates ticket, Emirates provied online visa service by VFS Global.
    but I will visit emirates jeddah office soon

  • Lloyd Savio

    Dear Tommy,

    Fellow Filipino here, were you able to solve your problem?
    I saw in their guidelines that you must enter UAE 30 Days upon issuing of Visa.

    How long does it take for them to issue a visa, 2-3 Days? Because I’m planning to go on December.

    Thanks

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Dear Lloyd,

    Yes,I successfully enter dubai last October 20,2016.

    Maximum 7 days working days,with me it takes 3 days.So if your planning to go on December and planning if buying 1 month valid visa better to apply 3rd-4th week of November so you can enjoy your stay in UAE.

    Hope this help.

    Regards/Tommy

  • Lloyd Savio

    Thanks Tommy. Yes I’m planning to go around December 20, that means I should apply I guess within the 30 days prior to my arrival.

    Did you cancel your previous visa (the one that expires on the 9th of October) and re-applied?

  • A friend of mine told me that he submitted all his documents to Emirates Jeddah office and they arranged a 30 days visa for him and his wife. If you apply for an online visa, it costs a lot and I think they issue it only for 4 days. I am not sure about it. Please update me once you go through the process/

  • Ikram Rao

    Yes Steve I will visit Emirates Office today In Sha ALLAH

    FYI from Emirates web site
    (You can use this service to apply for a UAE visa when visiting Dubai with Emirates. The service offers 96 hour, 30 day and 90 day visas. Your visa type will be based on your length of stay in Dubai, as stated in your Emirates itinerary.)

  • Ikram Rao

    Hello Steve
    I visit the Emirates office Serafi Mall Jeddah they said you can apply from here and (its better)
    but 30 days before your departure and Fee is SR 410 per person,
    all documents required in soft copy (Scanned)
    he said you can apply online but no one answer if you will unsuccessful and your friend or relative can apply from UAE.

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Yes Lloyd,I cancel and re-applied new visa.

    Just make sure that your visa will be valid before your exit date also.Mine was valid until October 27 and I exited October 25.

    Good luck!

  • Great! Can you please share the link with me?

  • SR 410 is too much. Why don’t you try the other option for $68 or $44 for transit visa?

  • Ikram Rao

    you are rite but then i have to apply online
    Emirates Office Jeddah charge SR 410 / $109
    Emirates Agent online $91.38

    I have 7 days plan and transit is only for 4 days

    Hi,

    I got visa for myself , wife and 3 children, but still didn’t one child visa is on hold they are asking to upload more documents with Remarks “There must be a person to set up and pay irregularities” and “There must establish this payment irregularities.” etc.. tSince 4 days I am re-uploading all documents and until now the visa is not issued.
    My travel date is 7th Nov 2016 .
    I have uploaded the screenshot below which is received from MOI regarding the visa processing of my daughter asking to re-upload some documents.
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2eb022a2c5dba473338616ef371a2573e8aed90c3d0c02923e5c0f88661aef6c.jpg

    Please advise if any one faced this issue.

  • Ikram Rao

    Dear Steve
    what you suggest, my Iqama validity remaining at the time of arrival at UAE 2 month 22 days not 3 month so should I renew my Iqama

  • If you are applying through Emirates Airline office, I don’t think it will be a problem. I know it is difficult to renew your iqama 3 months before expiry as GROs don’t listen to expats most of the times. Try for it but I don’t think it will be an issue.

  • Abubakr Muhammad

    I have the same question
    After i get my e visa for uae should I bring my original iqama
    If you found the answer please let me know

  • abdul quader

    Dear Steve,
    my family is in India and their exit re entry expired on 20/09/2016 as per your article about extension of exit re entry you wrote that 7 or 13 month will be count after date of expiry of exit re entry. i gathered all the document and send to mumbai (Saudi Embasy ) they reject my application by remark that visa already passed the 7 month . i contact my HR they are saying the 7 month count from date of issue of visa . further more can you tell me the process of cancellation of iqama because if i have to re issue the family permanent visa firstly i have to cancel the current one.

    Thanks

  • Maye

    Hi, I mistakenly submitted an application for my boss under GCC CITIZEN-ACCOMPANIES instead of GCC RESIDENT (under ESTABLISHMENT). He’s holding a Lebanese passport and is the CEO of our company. He will only be travelling alone. Would there be any problem on this? I understand that if visa type is under GCC CITIZEN-Accompanies, the sponsor should travel. But then the sponsor in the iqama is our company name. Anyone had same problem before? Please help to clarify. Thank you.

  • I will have to study your case in detail to advise anything that will consume a lot of my time. It is better to consult with someone who is experienced in applying for the U.S. visas. I believe, your application will be turned down even this time if you don’t prepare for it properly.

  • Huzaifa Mohee

    Plz go ahead n study my case

  • USMAN

    Dear Steve,

    I am Saudi Resident and My family (also Saudi resident) is currently in Pakistan on vacation. I am planning to apply for UAE visa by road (i.e. Abu Dhabi as port of entry and Al-Ghuwiaft Boarder) with my family. I will go to Dubai by road and my family will come to Dubai by air from Pakistan and then after spending some days in Dubai, we will come back to Saudi by road. Is this option workable or not?

    Waiting for your reply.

  • This is not workable. Read the requirements stated above in the article.

  • Muhammad Usman

    Hi i want to know that by mistake in my application form i wrote some wrong details tell me now what to do?

  • Fahad Faruq

    Dear all, I travelled to UAE by road from Riyadh on 12th January. I have a Pakistani passport and i got the visas online. I chose hata border as port of entry(OR you can choose dubai airport) because the profession on my iqama was different to what was available in the list when selecting Abu Dhabi airport or Al Ghuwaifat border.
    I came back yesterday. I did not face any problems at the immigration.

    So, as long as you have a valid visa of UAE, the visa issuing location mentioned on the visa does not matter.

    I went from Dammam road to Khurais road, then Hofuf bypass to Salwa and straight run to the border. Same route coming back. The road is fine .. just adds about 80 km from the Al Kharj route, but it is safer to travel the night since most of it has fence on the sides of the road and less chance of animal crossing.
    Al Kharj route on the other hand is open on both sides of the road. Although less traffic but it is unsafe for night travelling and has no gas stations on the way from Al Kharj all the way to Batha where one i think SASCO or ADNOC station comes in about 450 KMs. But i traveled that route back in July 2015. So, there is a chance that there has been some changes from them till now.

    Immigration and customs was seemless on both borders. Took me 45 minutes in total to enter uae and about 1.5 hours or less when i entered KSA border.

    The road from Al Ghuwaifat to Abu Dhabi, as usual, is all under construction and its a 2 lane road on each side. But still with all the truck traffic i was mostly able to maintain 120 km/h.

    Time:
    Left from Exit 8 (Riyadh Eastern Ring road) at 11:30 AM and reached Sharjah at 8:30 PM(9:30 UAE time). This includes all the stops (bathroom breaks, lunch, immigration, refuel etc)
    Left Sharjah (Al Qasmia district via Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed) at 10:45 AM UAE time and reached home (near Kingdom Hospital – Al Yasmin) at exactly 11:00 PM (10:00 PM KSA time). It includes a stop to meet a friend in AUH (Massafa), lunch, bathroom, refuel breaks etc)

    I hope I am able to help upcoming travelers.

    Thanks

  • Fahad Faruq

    while applying visa for my wife, i put incorrect DOB by mistake, but still the visa got issued. The difference was only two days in the DOB. I called Amer helpline and they asked me to call the airport immigration. I called them a lot of times and got lucky one time to someone answer my call. They redirected me to online visa department and guess what……………………no one picked up….
    A lot of friends advised that even if i go with this visa there won’t be any issue but still i applied for visa cancellation. The request was completed within a few hours and re-applied for a new visa immediately. I got the visa within 24 hours.

    Even with canceling and reapplying fees, It is still cheaper than the agencies if you are applying for 4 people and have one application messed up 🙂

    Agencies charge between 450 to 650 AED and the visa is only for 14 days. The visa you get from ednrd.ae is valid for 30 days for 258 AED only.

  • I really appreciate that you shared your experience. It will help many who want to travel to UAE>

  • Fahad Faruq

    I hope it will. I learned a lot from this thread the first time i was going to the UAE by road. This thread is probably the most active thread there is on the subject.
    People have lots of doubts/questions. They need to understand that as long as you have not made a major mistake in your visa application, you will get the visa.

    BUT AGAIN, WE SHOULD MAKE ABSOLUTELY SURE, CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK ALL THAT ALL THE INFO WE FILL IN THE APPLICATION IS ACCURATE

    I wish all happy and safe travels.

  • Fahad Faruq

    If the visa is issued already then EITHER you take the risk of using the same visa at the immigration and hope that they dont look at the visa too closely 🙂 OR you apply for visa cancellation which is on the same ednrd website. Fee i think 100 something AED and takes a few hours (telling from my experience, could be more) for visa to be canceled.
    Once you get the confirmation of visa cancellation, you can reapply for a new visa immediately.
    I personally would recommend the cancelling and reapplying as you wouldn’t want to take the risk of driving all the way to the border only to be denied access and spending hours to have the visa fixed or canceled

    Cheers

    for your wife, it will be HOUSEWIFE. And for children it will be NONE

    Hi,

    My online visa got rejected without mentioning any reason.
    Can we re-apply on the same application? because i can not find any option about this on website.

    My flight is in 3 days and i dont have the visa yet. what should i do now?
    I don’t want to risk again off applying again without knowing the reason of last reject? helpline does not support in giving the reason of rejection.

    what should i do now?

  • Serena

    ok so i also did try to create an account and i am having the same problem, cant get the activation link on my email (yahoo).. may be i try register with gmail but i feel its actually the system of ednrd which seems to be down.. kindly reply if anyone of you all had the chance to somehow get the link after few hours ? i have to travel on 21st and the time is less.. thanks in advance !

  • Serena

    ok so i got email after few hours..

  • Serena

    I have applied for my visa successfully

    (by selecting establishment as type of sponsor). Now i want to apply for my child but if i select type of sponsor as GCC Resident, then there is neither “Child”, nor “None” in the profession category, kindly guide what to select then ? in “relationship to sponsir” category however daughter option is available. but selecting a profession is must too as it is marked red. Kindly guide please.. (the NONE option advised by most applicants for child is only available if we select “establishment” as type of sponsor, however its not the right type to be selected for children as the “relationship to sponsor” category is not opt-able in it.. so i am pretty sure for children we have to select GCC resident as type of sponsor whose is the father..)

  • Serena

    i guess u can re-apply straight away.. kindly share your whatsap if possible as i also applied on 13 feb 2017 (today) and got it submitted succesfully

  • Serena

    bro you can contact me on watsap.. i have applied by selecting the option of Establishment as i am on work visa. for my child i selected GCC Resident type.. i hope i selected the right one.

  • Serena

    same problem with me, shall i select student as well ? did u face any problems ? kindly guide as i want to apply for my 3 years old child. i am selecting gcc resident as type of sponsor and as you said child or none both these options are not coming there.. kindly guide i am stuck !

  • Serena

    1- establishment for ur visa, and gcc resident for dependents visa
    2- give ur details of saudi arabia here,, name of sponsor in saudi/gcc country u are residing in

  • Serena

    proposed travel date to UAE.

  • Serena

    a special note for Steve, the visa application form is quite a bit changed with few updates.. i guess its about time you review and update the blog too.. the starting page (e.g the first option even, is changed and it starts with “type of sponsor” and has 3 options from which one has to be selected i,e establishment, gcc resident, gcc citizen) also in same way few other options in the form are totally changed like children need to be applied on gcc resident category as per my understanding. also uae visa details and pak/india/saudi (permanent country address) is a new addition.. also sponsor name etc are written in the beginning rather than how showed in your first pic of form.. Also the accompanied details section has been removed from the new updated forum.. kindly update these things ! thanks in advance.

  • Serena

    also kindly guide what i upload as ID card of 3 years old child? she doesnt have a ID Card. She has a birth certificate/B-Form.. kindly guide.

  • Serena

    Also.. also kindly guide what i upload as ID card of 3 years old child? she doesn’t have a ID Card. She has a birth certificate/B-Form.. kindly guide. thanks !

  • Abdul Hadhi

    Thank you Serena. I will do the same.

  • Ashfaq Ahmed

    Thank you so much for your kind details. Because of some new changes in GDRFA site. I lost more than 3000 DHARAM. For me and my 5 colleagues. And I appleid through travel agency. Every year apply my self for all. From January 2017 lots of changes we face by dubai government rules and regulations. So please let me know once you enter dubai successfully. Thank you

  • Thanks for it. I will try to update it ASAP. I always try to update my threads. Thank you very much!

  • Hi @Hazda:disqus , I would appreciate if you can brief us about the type of sponsor you chose while applying for your children and any other tips you want to give others. I will put them in the main article.

  • Serena

    great work ! hats off ! by the way i got my visa issued, now il apply for the child,, lets hope for the best !

  • Serena

    as u have already updated, i have choosen “GCC Resident” while applying for child and profession i had no other option so choosed student. i hope it works.

  • Serena

    for applying for child, here is the process : first opt “gcc resident” as sponsor type in gcc country,, then add sponsor (Father) details (e.g father name, nationality, etc and address better be same as written in father’s application form)..

    then add applicant’s (child’s) name, D.O.Birth, religion etc

    then in profession of applicant (child) add “not employed” as profession and then in relationship to sponsor, add “son/daughter”

    then add passport details of child

    then add applicant (child’s) GCC details.. in it add iqama number of child in “residence number” column.. add other details as asked..

  • Serena

    one info needed please, in expiry date of iqama, shall i write the one written on iqama or the one written in MOI Absher portal ?

  • Serena

    please guys ! urgent help needed.. ” in expiry date of RESIDENCE PERMIT (iqama), shall i write the one written on iqama or the one written in MOI Absher portal ? “

  • Fahad Faruq

    Hi Serena, Please use the one from your Absher account because that date will tell you how many remaining months the iqama is valid for… The date mentioned on the new iqamas is when a new card has to be issued.. Thanks

  • Fahad Faruq

    she must be having an iqama. That is the ID you have to upload

  • Serena

    thanks alot !

  • Fahad Faruq

    I had chosen “NOT EMPLOYED” for my son (2 year old) and “MUHREM/NOT ALLOWED TO WORK” for my daughter (5 years old). it worked in both cases and visa was issued

  • Please keep me posted about the status of your child’s visa. Appreciate your input!

  • It is better to write the one written in MOI portal

  • Ali

    successfully submitting application is not the issue as mine was also submitted, i dont get the reason of rejection yet. and if i apply again, it can get rejected again you never know.

  • Ali

    what mistake i madewhile submitting the form i don’t understand this.

  • Lai Rey

    Hi sir, i jus t want to ask,maybe you have an idea on my case. i have a uae visa thru an agency which has a sales executive profession. my iqama is still has labor profession. Will there be any issues in the immigration sir? thanks

  • Serena

    Yes i uploaded iqama. It worked well. Got visas

  • Serena

    Alright so I got visas for all family members. While filling up the application form i wrote a certain date as my date of arrival in uae (1st March). I was wondering if I travel before that date of 1st March (which was written in application form) , will they still allow me enter? Afterall on visa its written valid for 30 days before entry from issuance date.. by assuming this, i underatand that we can travel earlier too.. (also the date i wrote as arrival date on application form are NOT written on visa issued).

  • Serena

    Muhrem/not allowed to work category is actually for husband who is not working (and a working visa holder wife is his sponsor). The husband himself is not allowed to work as he is dependent on his wife visa.

  • Fahad Faruq

    Simply put, it is your direct relative, like father, son, husband and brother for females…. and sister, mother, wife and daughter for males.. It is not a profession. So I believe, it can be used since it covers your family members who are under your sponsorship ..
    NOT EMPLOYED could have worked as well … 🙂

  • Serena

    Guys ! Answer kindly so that i make up mind.

  • Fahad Faruq

    you can enter UAE from the date visa is issued regardless of what you mentioned as expected date of arrival.
    As long as the visa is valid you can enter UAE within the duration mentioned on it

  • Serena

    Great. Thanks a lot !

  • Ali

    I have got my visa rejected twice now. I don’t understand the reason and neither they tell the reason.My profession is engineer on iqama.

    Can anybody help me in this regard? i know if i apply again it will get rejected 🙁

  • Ahmad Aqrabawi

    Hi Serena…if my child has his own passport should make new application to him with fees 230 UAE

  • Serena

    Yes. Separate application for all passport holders.

  • Serena

    Apply in right category as mentioned.

  • Serena

    Guys im travelling tonight. Hope all goes well. Im travelling via road, so want to ask please tell if salik is must or not for saudi registered cars? Do i have to put salik tag or shall i skip it as some says its not needed. Kindly reply urgently as by morning il be in dubai..

  • Fahad Faruq

    I had put salik on my car because of the same doubt. But what someone recently explained to me that salik is applicable only on uae registered vehicles.i.e. only UAE residents have to pay salik. Cars registered in rest of gcc states are exempted.

  • Serena

    Yes thats why im confused because there is ambiguity. No official statement. Also did u buy sim or used roaming? How would i activate salik by a roaming sim i wonder..

  • Fahad Faruq

    You can register with ur ksa number. But make sure u have roaming enabled before leaving unless u have a prepaid connection. Then u already have roaming.. But it is very costly mind u.
    Salik chips are available only once you get on Sheikh Zayed highway after leaving Abu Dhabi. Stop at any gasoline station and the departmental store their will have it

  • Fahad Faruq

    Yes, I would recommend that you wait for your visa to be issued.
    1. You would know your visa has been issued or rejected
    2. Although not a mandatory requirement, but I had uploaded my issued visa along with other needed documents on my family’s visa applications.
    You don’t need to mention how many people accompanied with you. You have to apply visa individually for each of your family members.

    Hope this helps. Thanks

  • Abdul Hadhi

    Dear Mr Fahad
    Thank you for your guidance and quick response. In GCC portal my application status showing that “Application approved”. Hope they will issue the visa soon.
    Now i have following doubt to apply for my dependent visa
    1. For my wife and my children should i select “GCC Resident” as sponser type
    2. In Sponser Name, i have to write my name, how can i furnish my visa details. there is no option asking this details. But it is mention in the portal if sponser not travel with dependent than visa application will be rejected.

    PLease guide me.
    Thank you
    Abdul

  • Fahad Faruq

    1. Yes, for family members that are under your sponsorship, you will select “GCC Resident”, select your nationality and type your name EXACTLY as mentioned on your Iqama (which technically should be the same mentioned on your passport as well)
    2. You will upload copy of your visa on page 3 along with other required docs mentioned their

  • Shammas Raza Khan Syndhr

    Mr fahad,, i want to apply for UAE visa,, but my iqama name is bit different from my passport name,, as I corrected my name of passport after I came to saudia,, any suggestions 💡?

  • Fahad Faruq

    I am sorry I have not come across this issue.
    But from experience I can tell you that since you have to upload both your passport and iqama as required documents when applying for visa online, this might become a problem as the name on your passport will not match the name on your iqama

  • Serena

    1- yes apply after you get yours.
    2- upload ur visa too with a note above it stating they would be dependent and this is your visa etc. All uploads should be below 100 kilobites in size.

  • Serena

    Its normal to have accompamied written as zero. Because every individual will have a separate visa.

  • Serena

    Dont worry. Right you passport name. They tally passports numbers mainly.

  • sherik

    Dear @Serena,

    While applying when i choose AlGhoifat as port of Arrival, it does not enlist my profession “computer programmer” & rather limits the profession list.
    Can i change port of arrival in order to choose the right profession and travel through the same AlGhoifat port.

  • Fahad Faruq

    Choose Dubai Airport. I have same profession. Traveled twice thru AlGhoifat.. No issues
    Cheers

  • Shehzad Asif

    I have applied for e-visa yesterday for myself and family. I got email from MOI UAE with below message. Anyone experienced similar case that does it mean we need a sponsor from UAE?

    “FEEDBACK * Please attach a copy of the sponsor’s visa issued by the United Arab Emirates after approval * Please attach a picture hosted by the sponsor of both sides. Document Incomplete / documentation is incomplete”

  • javed aalam

    Dear Tommy,
    How did u cancel your Visa and how many days it took to get it cencelled?

    Waiting for kind reply.

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    If you log in to your UAE MOI account in the left corner 2nd below GCC services there is CANCEL VISA option.

    For me it took only 20 minutes.Cancelling and requesting again.

    Hope it helps.

  • javed aalam

    I did the same. It said 100 DH total for cancellation, I accepted but nothing happened. No money deducted from my credit card and still my visa status is Application Accepted.

  • Tommy James Nuneza

    Try to call Dubai Immigration and tell them your status. They will ask you visa number and they will cancel themselves or they will just update their system and tell you to do the same procedure again.

  • Hassan Farooq

    I have applied for Dubai online visa for me and my wife after posting i entered my credit card details & submitted and a new page appeared stating request timed out and then i entered my credit card password again and duplicate transaction happened in my credit card after that same page appeared stating request timed out.
    After that i checked the application status and it was showing my application but status was not posted and after some time when i checked again its showing no data.

    and I think there is no way to get money back.

  • Mr Seller

  • Mr Seller

    As far as i know you have to choose the correct port from where you are entering..i got my visa from Abu Dhabi airport because i choosed Ghuwaifat port becoz im also going from saudia and will be entering from Abu Dhabi

  • Mr Seller

    Oh really? I was thinking of doing this but then i thought that they will reject my second application as i already have one visa…how can they issue visa on visa..and they will not cancel first visa as i havent paid its cancellation fees 100AED

    I dont want my money back, i just want to get a new visa. Infact this option is better because cancelling a visa cost 100 AED so its better apply for new one, instead of cancelling it. Please confirm me, should i really try this? I dont want to get second visa rejected and waste my 258 Riyals again:(

  • Nishad N K

    Visa will have one month time to travel,right?

    Yes…I applied on 21st May, assuming that visa will take 3-4 days or longer to come..but i recieved it with in 8 hours…so noe it is expiring before my travel date…which is 24th June

    dears expecting your valuable support and advise

  • Shahid

    Dear, the same is the case with me. I choosed ghuwaifat border to enter. But my profession was not in the list, so i have selected different profession (but same field). My visa has come through. Do you think they will create issue while entering Abu dhabi

  • Mr Seller

    There are very limited professions in their list. My profession was also not there so i choosed the relevant profession and i got the visa. If you are from KSA , they have already seen your profession on your iqama. If they gave you visa, means they are accepting it. I dont think so they will give visa if they have issue with your profession.

  • disqus_XaT6mg8rtY

    Thank you rizwan for your prompt help.The first snapshot which you attched was came to me and i clik the pay button but one box is coming as kindly make sure the entered informations are correct. presently i am waiting for 1.5 days still i cannot re-submitt the application

    Hi,

    I applied for E-Visa and selected Emirate: Abu Dhabi and Port of Entry as Al Gouifat, as I want to travel by road (Car or Saptco bus) and not by airway (costly).

    In 6 hours my visa has been issued, but in the E-Visa, place of issue is printed as: Abu Dhabi Airport. Will appreciate if anyone can confirm if its OK to for me travel by road even though in the E-Visa its printed as Abu Dhabi Airport.

    Also, would like to know if Salik tag is must for Saudi Cars.

    Thanks in advance.

    I dont know about extension fees of Gcc resident visa..once i went to Dubai from my home country on a visit visa of 30 days ..it was of 400 darhams…but when i got it extended…i paid 700 darhams..so i guess in this visa…the fees will be double or more thn double..just a guess…

    But the good thing is tht you can get visa extended in just 5 minutes and without any long process…

  • Mr Seller

    Hello, just wanted to know that you entered from Ghuwaifat border? i.e Abu dhabi and if yes then are there street lights when you enter UAE? Im asking this bcoz i want to cross border and ravel in night only if there are street lights….im coming with family and this is my first time so dont prefer travelling in complete dark…

  • Mr Seller

    Hello…what happened to your case then? Im asking this bcoz my application status is also..application in process since last 4 days:(

  • Mr Seller

    Hello…need help..

    As i mentioned in my msgs on this page that i applied for visa and got it in 8 hrs..before my travel date:(

    So had no option but to cancel and reapply….unfortunately the visa cancellation option is not working..i tried to contact on phone..email..no response…

    Then mr.javed here who suffered same issue 2 months back told me tht he reapplied..so his old visa was automatically cancelled and new issued…

    Now i have done same…i have reapplied..on 31st May…so far the status is…application in process…do you have idea tht is this delay is because of Eid Rush….as last time i got visa in 8 hours…do you think i will be able to get it before eid..i have to travel on 23rd June…

  • Mohammad Ali

    Many thanks for your reply @mr_seller:disqus . I’ve applied for E-Visa on 30 May and it was issued on the same day. In Sha Allah, will plan to travel on 23rd of June either by Saptco or by car.

  • danish

    what to write in residence issue date of children age 1 yr bcz on her absher its showing mine(SPONSER) issuance date which is more than her age.they are not accepting.plz help

  • Date of Birth can work

  • Stunner

    I already got my visa, and later I applied for my family visa using the same account and paid the fees.
    But I do not see the application in the status enquiry for my family.
    Its still only showing my visa approved application.
    Do I need to create a new account for each member of my family?
    If so, then how do I get a refund on my already applied visa?

  • Arsalan Jawed

    I have a friend who needed to renew the 90 day validity of the multi reentry visa (of 1 year). We are located in Khobar, so he just made her make a round from Bahrain, via a road trip.
    She was allowed inside and she came back after getting the stamp from Bahrain Causeway, without any problems. Just make sure she has the visa for UAE.
    She has the liberty to enter of exit Saudia on her visa. Crossing the border to another country would be your headache to handle (for visa etc.).

  • Omair

    Thanks! I got her Visa for UAE so it should not be a problem 🙂

  • maru

    Please help! My colleague work in King Saud Bin Abdulaziz University, College of Dentistry, National Guard Health Affairs. Plan to process a visa online, she’s working as DENTAL ASSISTANT but her iqama visa is HOUSEKEEPER. How could we apply online if there are lots of speculation that they are not going to approved. Please help.

  • Shiraz Anjum

    Hi bro, thanks for the details, it helped alt, I have a query, the photo background should be only white? and did u upload the normal passport size photo?
    and how much time it took to apply ur visa? i also need to apply for my family, I should submit my dependents application altogether? or wiat for myvisa approval first?

  • Girish Shetty

    I travelled to uae last month (evisa), can i renew the same if i have to travel this month end or apply for a new one

  • danish

    i put iqama issuance date just one yr before expiry and thankfully i got visa.

  • Girish Shetty

    Can I travel to Abu dhabi (as i have to select the precise destination in the application) and return from Dubai?

  • Omair

    Still my Family Visa Application showing Application posted. It is now 8 working days passed. I called the MOI UAE and they asked me to wait. Anyone have any idea how long they will take. I need to travel soon. Are there any alternates?

  • fahad

    Hello , Can you please let me know how you paid as it says application already exist with incomplete payment. Did u just create new application and how long u had to wait to create a new one?

  • Shabeerali

    It is always better to carry it as sometimes they need to verify the profession on original iqama. I haven’t travelled after the e-visa implementation but have heard original iqama is a must for gcc resident e-visa which is issued based on our profession in iqama. It is best to carry original iqama for while family.

  • Omair

    How did your issue got resolved?

  • Mr Seller

    No you dont need to create seperate account. All can be applied through your account as you are the sponsor. You should see the other applications with Application posted status…was the amount the debited from your card? Are you sure that applications were submitted?

  • Mr Seller

    This is very strange that why not all applications get checked in sequence….this case has happened with our friends last year..husband wife got visa..kids didnt…so they had no option but contacted an agent…i dont know wht he did but they got the visa..but tht was quite late…

  • Mr Seller

    I dont think so you can renew the visa…it was for one time..now you hv to.apply for new visa….you can extend visa but cant renew it…hope im correct

  • Mr Seller

    I think yes..if anyone enters from abu dhabi by bus….but want to return by air from dubai…it should not be an issue….still get it confirmed from some travel agent

  • Shehzad Asif

    The issue get resolved as i uploaded my issued visa copy (i got visa in 3 days) on my dependents applications. Later my family got their visas within 24 hrs. Kindly follow this, best of luck!

  • Shehzad Asif

    You need to upload your issued visa copy on your dependents applications, same page where docs are uploaded. Your family will get visa within a day or two Insha’ Allah. Sharing my experience of April 2017, best of luck!

  • Omair

    Thanks. My Application is already posted. There is no option of changing the Application. Do i need to create new Applications? Also should i upload my Visa on Passport Page 1 as there is no specific option saying sponsor Visa

  • Omair

    Problem is I didn’t get any email from them so far. Should I wait or fill out a new application?

  • Shehzad Asif

    If you have got your visa, just upload it on existing applications of family members. You can edit those individual applications and upload in section like “Passport Page 1” etc as no specific one for visa paper. Let me know if needs any further clarification.

  • danish

    i m a GCC resident, want a dubai visa. In summer vacation, I first go to India and then on returning back to KSA, I want to stay for 4 days in dubai. In this condition, can i apply for dubai visa as an GCC resident.

  • Omair

    I can’t find edit option on the application. I searched my application in Document Reupload section but it is not available. looks like I have to create new application which will cost me double the amount

  • Shehzad Asif

    If you have got the visa for your application you will not get the option in your application. Follow the email from MOI for the dependents applications. “Please upload the documents by using the ‘Document Reupload’ link on the website”. The applications in progress let you reupload document and there you need to attach your visa copy with dependents applications and submit. No need of new application.

  • Omair

    Unfortunately I did not get any email asking to upload document. Applications for dependents still showing Application Posted. The status is even not in process 🙁

  • Shehzad Asif

    I got an email for family with subject “Visa application has documents required” and asking for sponsor visa copy upload so i did upload after i got my visa. Sponsor visa in case that is yourself must be issued for family visa to take process that is my point. Just wait for couple of days and it may be peak season due to vacations.

  • fahad

    were u able to create new application ? after how long ? please reply

  • It is better to apply for the visit visa through an agent in Dubai. You would not be allowed to enter the country without your father if you apply E-Visa.

  • Nifra Niyas

    Thank you, Mr. Steve for your promt reply. I guess my sister in Dubai can apply for a visit visa for me.

  • Sisi bin Mubarak

    I applied for myself, wife, and daughter. All Canadians. My wife and I got it. But for daughter I received remarks: هذي الجنسية لا يصدر لها اذن دخول من هذا النوع يصدر لها تاشيره فور وصلها للدولة.
    (“Cannot issue for this nationality. She will get visa upon arrival”)

    Doesn’t that kill the whole purpose of e-visa to make things simple and not waste time at the border. And what will happen to my AED 258? I get partial refund? But why? I only followed what was instructed.

    Has anyone else had this experience? Is there a way to get her e-visa?

    Thanks to anyone who may have a constructive answer.

  • You can apply through any travel agent. not a big deal!

  • Omair

    I waited long enough and didn’t get any email. I applied again for them by uploading my approved visa. Got their visa within few hours. Lost previous application Visa fees 🙁

    Hello,

    I have applied for E-Visa as mentioned in the above procedure.
    I have two questions if anyone could please advise :
    1. While filling the details, Visa duration was not asked. So by default the Visa duration will be 30 days?
    2. The Visa fees is AED 250 only? as my colleagues paid AED 400.

    Please advise as it will be of great help as this forum is very much active and helps a lot of people with different queries

  • Mr Seller

    You are their sponsor so upload your residency card as well as their residency cards..if you have already got the visa..then also upload it. Hope it helps.

  • Mr Seller

    Search the applications in your account. Once you see your daughters application, open it and check if you can complete it by doing payment…

  • Mr Seller

    Yes by default its 30 days…

    Yes its 250…may be your colleague applied through an agent..

  • Mr Seller

    If you are entering abu dhabi by road from saudi arabia..then you have to select al guwaifat port of abu dhabi…

  • Malik G M Asim

    Bro i received email after its reject can i apply again on same fee or i have to refund and apply again

  • Mr Seller

    If your visa was rejected then you can refund…i think its 100…but why you want to apply again..why you think it was rejected?

    Is your passport valid for six months? And iqama for 3 months?

  • Malik G M Asim

    MOI requires further documents from you for processing Appli­cation Reference Num­ber :

  • nasir siddiqui

    salam Imran;

    Just now i applied for dubai visa myself , should i wait for approval first and then apply for wife and children. How to apply dubai visa online for wife and kids. I m really confused please help me….

  • Imran

    Wa alaikkum assalam Nasir.

    First i applied myself with the below,

    -Passport
    -Iqama id or gulf id
    – Photo

    once you get visa for yourself (May take 30 min for approval)

    Apply your wife and then your child

    – Upload your approved UAE visa
    – Passport
    – iqama or gulf id of your spouse
    – photo

    Thats it. Less than 1 hour you will get visa. you will get only 30 days validity for your visa. so apply 20 or 10 days before you leave

  • Imran

    When you apply for your family, add your details as sponsor.

  • Imran

    your iqama is mandatory. They dint ask anything about my stay. It was less than 2 min at immigration.

  • nasir siddiqui

    Thanks for your immediate reply. I have to apply separate for each applicant right but what should i select gcc rersident or establishment for my family. according to your blog it says if applying for family then select gcc resident option and then sponsor name and address so in this case i will be sponsor for wife and kids and sponsor address will be my office address or home address…. in addition to umar bhai this is no option to upload uae visa alongwith family visa application. There are options: first page , RP copy , Photo , Second Page etc….

  • Imran

    Bro First of all This blog is owned by Steve, you must thank him for his dedication.

    – You should create new application for all the dependents who have separate passports.

    – for your family it should be gcc resident and profession will be not employed. You can give your sponsor address or your house address (i dont think it matters)

    – Attach your visa copy at any of the attachment section. They will see all the attachments anyhow. so it will work. in sha allah

  • nasir siddiqui

    Thanks alot to steve and imran. this should be UAE government’s responsibility but no help on MOI website therefore agents are making money. Thanks a lot again.

  • Imran

    Ok cool. Its very simple. You can apply and get it easily. no need to approach agents. In sha allah you will get it without any issue.

    Bro Imran i have applied for dubai visa and they are now asking to re-upload the documents on their website to further process the visa. They require the following docments to reupload

    1) Photo
    2) Residence copy
    3) ID Card
    4) Passport Page 1

    What is the difference b/w Residence and ID card.
    Kindly help me in this regard.

    Thanks in Advance

  • Imran

    wa alaikkum assalam.

    I dint have ID card to be uploaded. Can i know what sponsor type you selected? ( establishment or soething else)

  • Abdullah Iqbal

    Bro I selected establishment, but my profession was not listed… so i selected Computer Manager. My Iqama profession is Computer Network Technican. They were asking for

    1) Photo
    2) ID Card
    3) Residence Copy ( I don’t know if it is Exit Re-Entry Visa or what?)
    4) Passport Page 1

    I uploaded iqama copy on both ID Card and Residence Copy option.
    Later they asked me to reupload all the documents i again did the same and now my application is already rejected.. The problem is that i have already paid the fee for my 4 family members and there status is” Documents required for further processing” means i have to upload documents again..

    Kindly help me in this regard.
    JAZAKALLAHU KHAIR.

  • Imran

    I am really sorry bro. Not sure why its asking for ID card. I submitted passport, iqama and photo. Thats it. Please try uploading your company id card.

    You should not apply for your family unless you get visa. You must submit your visa copy when you apply for your family.

  • Abdullah Iqbal

    Thanks for the info bro. Is it Necessary to enter UAE from the same Port which is mentioned on the Visa or we cam just enter from any port like from Riyadh the Entry Port will be AlGuwaifat. In my case if I select AlGuwaifat than my professsion is not available in the list unless and untill i choose some different Entry Port like HATA. Any Idea bro?

  • Abdullah Iqbal

    and also if i choose HATA as an Entry Port than it is not asking for the Residence copy anymore which was incase of AlGUWAIFAT(ALGOUIFAT).

  • Imran

    I am not sure what is it “ALGOUIFAT”. My immigration was less than 2 min. I dont think port entry really matters. Better you call them and get it verified bro.

  • ketan kamat

    Hi,
    I am a GCC resident. My wife and daughter are also GCC residents. I got my Dubai visa approved. While applying for my wife and me, I by mistake have chosen GCC citizen accompanies. Will this cause any problem if their visa gets approved. I don’t see any option to change the visa type. Is there any way to change the visa type?

  • junaid

    Hi Ketan, there is some confusion regarding ID card to be uploaded (in addition to residence copy). In Saudi Arabia we have “iqama” which is the residence permit. What documents did you upload for residence copy and ID card?

  • Qandeel Hussain

    I emailed them and followed up till they returned the amount on my credit card.
