UAE announces 5-year multiple entry visa


The UAE Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has just announced they are ready to accept applications for a new 5-year multiple entry tourist visa.

This new visa enables tourists to enter UAE multiple times on self-sponsorship and remain in the country for up to 90 days on each visit, which can be extended for another 90 days.

We understand that the cost of application will be AED 650 (approx. US$ 177) and all nationalities can apply.

“If you wish to extend the annual period of stay in the country for more than 90 days in one year and for a period not exceeding 180 days, you can submit a request to extend the period of stay within the country,” said ICA.

Whilst details are still emerging about the requirements for the application, it appears that the following will be needed:

  • Passport copy
  • Passport photo
  • Proof of health insurance
  • Bank statement showing a balance of at least 4,000 USD (or the equivalent in a foreign currency)
