Visa to UAE

General information

From February 2017, Russian citizens can visit the UAE for tourism purposes, obtaining a free visa on arrival for up to 30 days. In fact, you just put in the passport a stamp to stay for 30 days without any additional checks and formalities. In the future, you can extend this period for another 30 days by contacting the immigration office during your stay in the country. Also free visa on arrival unable to citizens of Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

There are the following types of UAE visas for tourist purposes:

  • Transit visa for 96 hours required to transit through the country (if you leave the transit area).
  • Tourist visa for 30 days.
  • Visit visa (at the invitation of UAE nationals) for 30 or 90 days.

Attention! Often in the Internet you can find information about the restrictions on issuing visas to women under 30 years of age, traveling without a husband. These restrictions are certainly not applicable to citizens of the Russian Federation, and disseminated information does not correspond to reality.

Also some travelers have reported that there are problems with visas or entry UAE visa if already issued and with the stamp of Israel in your passport, but officially this information is not confirmed.

Tourist visa

Attention! The information below is for Russian citizens no longer relevant in connection with the introduction of the free visa on arrival.

The validity of the visa until the date of entry into the country is 58 days, the period of stay on a visa in the country for 30 days.

Tourist visa independently, without the purchase of travel vouchers, a rather complicated procedure. Generally speaking, a visa independently at the non-diplomatic passports outside of the UAE is not carried out. Visas are issued only within UAE Immigration Departments to petition the competent companies/inhabitants/residents of the UAE. So your task for self-clearance will be reduced to such authorised companies, collecting and providing documents.

This can be done in the following way:

  • Through specialized travel agencies in the UAE. It is easy to find such firms through the Internet. The cost is different, on average, about $80.
  • Visa can help hotel the accommodation in which you reserve and pay. The price for the visa, you must negotiate and bargain in advance, before booking, otherwise there is a chance to overpay.
  • To apply for a visa through the visa centers in Moscow airlines when flying with Emirates or Etihad. For such registration have additional terms, including a trip in the last five years in one of the developed countries or the annual income of not less than 400 000 rubles. Cost – 2210 rubles.
  • To apply for a visa when buying a tour in a travel Agency.

Transit visa

Transit visa needs to be issued if your stay in the country will last more than 24 hours and you will leave the transit area. If you do not plan to leave the transit area of the airport and your stay will not be more than 24 hours to issue a visa is not necessary. If the time between connecting flights less than 8 hours, the transit visa you will be denied and you will not be able to leave the transit area.

The validity of a transit visa is 96 hours.

Transit visa is issued either in advance (you can register by contacting the airline that you are flying) or on arrival at the airport. Pre-registration can be done only in Moscow visa application centre Emirates airlines (for travel via Dubai) or at the visa application centre Etihad (for route through the Emirate of Abu Dhabi). The cost of registration in Moscow will be about 1,800 rubles.

For registration of a transit visa upon arrival will need a ticket out of UAE hotel reservation (you can not paid, the more that it usually does not look). Sometimes getting a transit visa on arrival can take a long time (10-12 hours), so by the time the visa you only have a couple hours to walk around the Parking lot near the airport. So keep that in mind. The fee for processing visa on arrival is about 200 dirhams.

To the camp "Umbwe" we got to 17 hours. The camp is a small, relatively flat area of the jungle, equipped with a toilet type "John" (clean by the way) and stationary structure type of metal gazebo on a concrete Foundation which was used by the kitchen and dining room for staff. the First thing that caught my eye, there was only our team. Even the local Ranger I saw. The second difference from the usual tracks had two, Yes Yes Carl, it was two tents for us! One was a triple nonfaculty Alpina (maybe each mountain of a two-layer model), in which we slept and the other simpler but high (area of about 6 sq. m.), in which we ate and it was our relaxation area, there was a good place, sitting on a camp chair at the table, to talk, to leave for the night trekking poles, just more convenient to change into the right gear. For the guide and his assistant were put in a separate tent, but with us they didn't eat. The dinner we were served at 19 hours, in the dark (it was getting dark about half past six in the evening). Dinner was delicious and the food so much that we have not overcome the half of it. But Joel reassured us, saying that there will be someone to solve this problem. After dinner - a medical check-up. Control of our health is the responsibility of the guides. Measurement of oxygen content in the blood and filling the form with a rating for each of the ~10 ...

In Zagreb I visited the end of this summer and for many who shared their impressions. The city is amazing, you will not be bored, especially if you decide to see its attractions. Here you can get acquainted with them in advance:Категория:Достопримечательности_Загреба. But I personally want to tell you about the places in which I had a great time. Medvedgrad - the first place that attracted my attention. It is an imposing castle located on the southern slopes of the Medvednica massif. It is surrounded by forest and this view only gets better(I was traveling alone, find the road was not a problem). Can't Express all your emotions, it's definitely worth seeing. Zagreb zoo - here I've been to the end of the journey, I love animals, and to look close to snow leopard and bison - is something unimaginable. Active animals, watching them is interesting, it is clear that caring for them well, visit this beautiful place. Attractions of Zagreb enough, you will definitely find a place that will interest. ...

I also would like to leave feedback about the trip to Bavaria. We were with her husband in Munich, and loved the journey. Yes there was much, we were delighted with the trip. It seems to me that there again we will be back next year, because such an abundance of impressions I received. We were lucky that we chose a tour guide Tatiana, Mirsberger, with her we visited many wonderful places, were particularly interested in the Royal residence and the Treasury, and at the Studio, the husband was under the impression from visiting the BMW factory, as Tatiana has not only information, but how she teaches. I recommend our guide, here is her website go and read. ...

Until September 2018 has never been outside Ukraine. Urgently raised the idea of the journey not anyhow where, and once in the Netherlands! Because the experience of such trips was absolutely at ground level, it was decided to "be tested" in the bus tour. The final route is as follows: Lviv-Krakow-Dresden-Amsterdam-Prague-Lviv. 6 days, almost 3.5 thousand kilometers, 4 countries, 4 cities, 2 nights, 3 nights in hotels. I think many will be interested in specific figures, so some points will be mentioned here. The tour itself cost 200$ per person + mandatory purchase of the tour. package from$ 20. My subjective opinion – it's not expensive (if not to say cheap), another question is are you ready for such bus journeys. On arrival I decided to write this short essay in a few parts. September 18, 2018. Lions 5-00 in the morning. The mood is depressed, you have at 6 am to be at the railway station, and from there to go to terminal a (who does not know this is the point of sending tourist buses in Europe and is located 15 km from the station). Along the way tell about the complex and what you need it is paramount to buy on the trip. The complex itself is a huge building, namely: cafe, hotel, shop, chairs, tables, outlets, a comfortable space to wait for your flight. Who has traveled to Europe knows that the most important attribute is drinking water! In Europe it costs a fortune (1-2 euros for 0.5 l), while in Terminal it is almost 10 times cheaper... So many friends lamented the necessity of buying pillows for neck, and saw them in the store not thinking gained (and not lost!).
