Tourist Visa

A tourist visa is obtained if a person wants to visit UAE for leisure activities and for meeting family and friends. You are able to visit any places in the UAE within the time limit of the visa.

Types of Tourist Visas

14-Days Tourist Visa
30-Days Tourist Visa
90 Days Tourist Visa

These are “single entry” visas. This means that whoever gets a tourist visa can only enter UAE once. So your visa gets expired after you exit UAE even if you exit weeks before the visa expiration.

Visit Visa

Visit Visa is for those who come to the UAE for a job hunt or to attend any job interviews. Then you might be thinking why not a tourist visa? This is because if you get a job offer from UAE, your visa status can be transferred easily to employment Visa.

Types of Visit Visas

30-Days Visit Visa (gets a grace period of 10 DAYS)
90 Days Visit Visa (gets a grace period of 10 DAYS)

Both can be single or multiple entries. You can fly back to UAE even after leaving UAE provided your visa has not expired. This is a “Multiple Entry” Visa.
