If you are planning to travel and your flight takes you to Dubai, either as a destination, or sometimes even as a stopover, you will likely need to complete a Dubai visa application in good time for your trip.
In the current climate of changeable travel arrangements and restrictions, however, how can you be sure that you have access to the up-to-date requirements for a visa from Dubai? It is every traveller’s nightmare to find themselves stranded in a foreign country because of a mix up in documentation.
While there are many scam websites that claim to provide and process online visa applications, you would be advised to only access completely reputable and verified channels, such as those below.
Firstly, you could speak to your experienced travel agency who should be expert enough to guide you and provide a valid application on your behalf.
Secondly, since not all travel agents are as professional or current as they could be, if you feel at all unsure you should ring your country’s United Arab Emirates embassy or consulate offices to enquire, as they may require you to attend an interview, depending on your citizenship or other factors.
And finally, if you are not required to apply in person, the embassy should be able to direct you to their official website for online applications.
As a savvy modern traveller it is important to do your due diligence and be sure that every one of your travel documents are in order before departure. As a backup measure, you would also strongly be advised to check whether your travel insurance covers costly visa errors.
