The kind of visa that you require for entry into the UAE depends on several different factors such as your nationality, the purpose of your planned visit and its planned duration. It is relatively easy to obtain a visa allowing you to enter the UAE.
Dubai Visa Requirements
There are several different ways to obtain a visit visa for Dubai and other emirates in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). A visit visa and a tourist visa are not the same, although they are both entry permits for visitors to the UAE. The difference is mostly to do with who sponsors the visitor for their trip, cost, and whether or not the visa is renewable.
Tourist Visa is valid for 30 days and is nonrenewable. Tourist Visas are available to all nationalities (except Israeli passport holders) and must be prearranged, usually through a hotel but possibly also through an airline or other travel related company .
A Transit Visa for Dubai & the UAE is issued to individuals at the request of any licensed company such as hotels or trading companies who hold an authorization for applying for this visa. It is valid for 4 days and it cannot be renewed. A transit visa can only be issued if a visitor has a valid ticket for an onward flight and the issuing of transit visas are usually free of cost.
Tourists can get a visa from a tourist company or a hotel by first making a reservation for at least one night. They must fax/courier the hotel a copy of their passport along with the reason for the visit (tourism is an acceptable reason) and their arrival date. You must also make sure that the hotel faxes you a copy of the visa when it is ready.
