    Hi, I hold a South African passport and I am currently living in the UK married to a Swiss National. We would like to visit Dubai for a five day holiday. What are the visa requirements? I have heard that I am able to get a visa on arrival if I have my airline tickets and a booked hotel. Is there any truth in this and would it be easier to apply for a tourist visa at the Embassy in the UK?

    Thanks for your comments

    Hi Tracy,
    try applying for the visa via emirates airline.You just need to fly with them and they can make a 14 days transit visa for you.

    Hi there, I am a Indian Citizen. I am due to receive a Spouse Visa and then join my husband in the UK. Before going to the UK I will meet up with my husband for our honeymoon in Dubai and hope to stay there for 1 week. My husband is able to receive a Visa from Emirates airline but how should I proceed in regards to Visa regulations. I am in Indian Citizen but my spouse is a British Citizen (not sure if this helps!). Many thanks

    hardeep: go the the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Bangkok and apply for your visa to Dubai. (It might seem like a crazy idea but it just might work).

  • if you ar booking your flights with Emirates they can easly assist you.
    any other airline the just to the embassy and it might take 3 to 5 working days

    I have visited Dubai on holiday with my spouse in the mid Feb-10 by Emirates. During our visit, we have got the Compensation ticket from Emirates valid for one year. This time we are planning to visit along with our son in may or june-10. but since he was issued passport for 5 years(being minor), it is going to expire on 28.09.2010. As per DVPL site, minimum validity required on the passport is six months for applying Visa. Being minor and travelling with us, whether he will be given considered for the Visa and entry to Dubai?

    HI there,
    I am travelling to Dubai in October and need to arrange a visa. Unfortunately i found out too late that Virign doesnt assist with visas. I am also visiting my friends which means i am not staying in a hotel. At the same time they cant sponsor me as her husband is the only one who is working at the moment and he cant be my sponsor as he is male and i am female. Could any one please recommend an agent who would help me with visa without paying for a hotel?
    Many thanks in advance!
