UAE Transit Visa for German citizens
3 min read
Updated on May 14, 2024

Facing a lengthy layover in the UAE and not thrilled about spending it all at the airport? We're here to guide you to the outside world with a UAE Transit Visa.

Holding a UAE Transit Visa opens up a realm of possibilities beyond the airport lounge, like wandering the historical alleys of Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood in Dubai, or experiencing the grandeur of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. This visa is your pass to turn a simple layover into an exciting escapade.

Fill me in

Let us handle the visa process, so you can start dreaming about the unique stories you'll tell of your UAE layover adventure.

Do German citizens need a UAE Transit Visa?

Yes, German citizens traveling through the UAE via Abu Dhabi International Airport with plans to leave the airport must apply for a UAE Transit Visa.

This visa suits travelers facing layovers of more than 8 hours, allowing them a chance to experience the UAE for a brief period. It’s issued for either 48 or 96 hours and is intended for a single entry with no extension possible once you've entered the UAE.

For those receiving a 48-hour visa, remember, your time in the UAE is limited to exactly that — 48 hours from when you arrive. This rule is the same for the 96-hour visa holders.

The process of applying for this visa can be confusing if tackled alone. This is where a service like ours can be invaluable.
