WHAT IS A UAE EVISA?

It’s an official pre-travel document that provides permission to fly to the United Arab Emirates. This document tends to be electronically linked to your passport.

HOW LONG CAN I STAY IN THE UAE WITH AN EVISA?

The maximum stay allowed with this document is 30 days in Total for a Single Entry. However, don’t forget that the visit is strictly limited to business or tourism, nothing else.

If you’re one of the lucky countries that can apply for the UAE eVisa, then you can use iVisa.com to apply online. iVisa.com uses the services of Etihad, which means that we focus on contact with the official authorities so you can receive your document on time. To apply online, you’ll have to provide the following requirements:

  • Valid passport: this is basically the most important requirement, which is why you should have it valid for the date of arrival in UAE. If the document expires sooner than that, you need to have it renewed. Otherwise, your UAE eVisa could be denied.
  • A passport scan: it has to be in JPEG format.
  • Passport photo: the photograph must meet the standards of a passport photo. To help you with that, we have a Passport Photos service that can be useful for readers.
  • Valid e-mail address: when you apply online, you’ll receive a copy of your eVisa via e-mail, so make sure that you offer a valid email address before applying.
  • Means of payment: since you’ll have to pay for this document while completing the form, don’t forget to have a valid Paypal account or debit/credit card on hand.

Keep in mind that children also need their own passport, a photo, and a birth certificate in English or Arabic.

  • Rush processing: this processing time takes only 15 days, and the total price for it is USD $253.99 (service fees included).
  • Super rush processing: you won’t have to wait more than 12 days, but since it’s the fastest option, you’ll have to pay USD $305.99 (service fees included).

We invite you to apply for your UAE eVisa here.

HOW CAN I APPLY FOR A UAE EVISA?

You only need to fill in an effortless application form with your information. This form will probably take you only 10 minutes. Then, iVisa.com will take care of the other part of the process. Shortly, we will inform you about the status of your application.

The application for a UAE eVisa has only three easy steps:

  • The first one is to write your general information in the first questionnaire. You also have to decide the processing time from the options mentioned earlier.
  • The second step is to review the information in step one and make the payment with your preferred payment method (debit/credit card or Paypal).
  • The last step is to make sure that you have all the documents required so you can upload them if necessary.

After you finish the 3-step online process, you can submit the form and that would be all. Don’t forget that you can contact our support service if you have doubts.

HOW CAN I APPLY FOR MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS?

You can apply for friends or family if they will travel with you or if they don’t have time- but you must have the required documents. To do that, simply click on ‘add new applicant’ and fill in their details. This is necessary only if they travel with you.

If they travel separately, then you have to fill in the online form the same way we mentioned above.
