The situation

Effective immediately, foreign nationals travelling to the United Arab Emirates under a short-term visitor visa-on-arrival will benefit from the issuance of a single-entry visa for up to 30 days per stay, instead of a multiple-entry visa that only allowed a 30-day total stay in cases when re-entry was made within the validity of the previous visa.

Holders of the visa can obtain one in-country 30-day extension.

Eligibility

Nationals of 16 countries, including Australia, Canada, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States are currently eligible for this visa category.

Impact

Visa-on-arrival holders will be less likely to face overstay fines for mistakenly staying in the country over the previous total allowable stay of 30 days cumulatively for all visits.
