Stopping over during your trip? Here's how to make use of a stopover
to explore the UAE.
+ During one of the busiest times to travel, UAE is a much preferred
choice for travellers around the world. However, if you're on a
multi-country trip, going through the hassle of getting a 14-day
tourist visa may be hard and not worth the expense.
+ If you fulfill the conditions for visa on arrival in UAE, you can
get one for 14-days. If you are not eligible or if you don't have the
time, a free transit visa is the way to go.
+ A transit visa is approved when you land at one of UAE's airports
but have a different final destination on your trip - for example,
Kochi through Dubai to Amsterdam.
+ To get a transit visa, you need to have an interval of at least
eight hours between your arrival in UAE and departure to your final
+ If you have the requisite tickets, the next step is to apply for a
transit visa ahead of your trip. Only UAE-approved airlines can
process your transit visa applications, and therefore applicants are
advised to apply not less than two weeks in advance.
+ You also need to have confirmed hotel reservations for the period of
stay - either 48 hours or 96 hours - depending on the visa you applied
So what is free? A transit visa of 48 hours is approved free of charge
if all other terms and conditions are met. You can explore the UAE for
two whole days without paying a dime towards entry and exit.
+ However, if you plan on staying for 96 hours or 4 days, you have to
pay Dh50. Neither visa is extendable.
