    Hi Candace

    South African citizens can obtain a visit visa from the UAE embassy before departure. It is stamped for 30 days but can be extended to 60 days. Further extensions will cost you.

    British citizens can enter with their passport and stay for a month. Should they want to extend for another 2 months then they will need to apply for a visa.

    I'm not sure if you would classify as a British citizen so I suggest that you visit your embassy and discuss with them.
