In announcing the new service, His Excellency continued:

“The DNRD and Flydubai will work together to ensure the travel agency staff abroad are aware of the latest developments in the visa procedure to avoid some of the problems and complications which arise from a lack of knowledge of the laws which apply in UAE.”

Ghaith Al Ghaith, Flydubai’s CEO said:

“We are delighted to work in partnership with the DNRD to offer this unprecedented service in Dubai. The Dubai visa process can be a lengthy one and a real hindrance to travel. Flydubai and the DNRD have established this partnership to find a way of making the system easier, quicker and more reliable”.

“We are very pleased to have been chosen as the launch customer by DNRD as this type of service highlights our commitment to making travel a little less complex, a little less stressful, and a little less expensive. I am confident it will be popular with our passengers.”

    Dear Sir,

    I have been invited by the American University of Emirates to conduct a 45 day training course in July, in their Dubai campus.

    I am an Indian citizen and I shall need the UAE visa for the above purpose. I am expecting more such assignments in future.

    Is it possible for me to get a multiple entry visa for two months duration of stay? If so what are the charges and what is the procedure?

    Dear Mariam,

    There is no reason why you should not be able to get a 30 day Visa for Dubai.

    Which airline are you flying with? It may be best to get in contact directly with the airline you are travelling with as they will be able to organise this for you. Alternatively click here for more details on Visas for Dubai.
