A Trip to UAE: Dubai, Visa and Budget Options

There is something about Dubai that is homey and exotic at the same time. While the sharp spices and ethnic fabrics help you connect, the modish architecture and sizzling beach clubs let you marvel at its sight. And the golden sand, well that just pampers you snuggly. Moreover, the geographical position of the emirate involves less travelling hours, which makes for a quick escapade. Getting a Dubai visa too isn’t a hard drill.

The UAE visa process involves a short and simple procedure. UAE tourist visa for Indian citizens can be availed for a period of—14 days (single entry), 30 days (single or multiple entry) and 90 days (single or multiple entry). However, your UAE stay can’t exceed 30 days as per the Dubai visa requirements.

You can apply for UAE visa online. It will ideally require:

  • Duly filled visa application form,
  • Original passport for verification,
  • Onward and return confirmed tickets and
  • Recent passport size photographs (4.3 cms x 5.5 cms) preferably in a white background,
  • Applicable visa fees

A UAE visa also involves an age criteria. Men aged less than 22 and women below 30 years of age need to be accompanied by their father, mother or husband. If you are going for a solo trip and do not cross this age bar, a no objection certificate from your parent/guardian needs to be attached with the application.

Plan a relaxing month long trip or go for a quick week’s break, or better still visit twice and thrice if you can’t get enough of the place. Ideally your visa should take five working days to process. As long as you stick to the rules, there is no reason why you would be denied your Dubai visa.

This abroad trip, like any other, won’t burn a hole in your pocket. A vacation is supposed to be soothing and fun and that isn’t possible if the expenditure exceeds your budget. In such a case, it just becomes a straining trip that leaves you meddling with your finances to make ends meet. But not Dubai. The largest city of UAE is as extravagant as it is modest.
