However, in UAE, there are lots of visas, and the ability to live permanently in the UAE is granted through a UAE residence visa. Which is for a period of two to three years, the visa may be renewed as often as required.

Visitors who are not entitled to admission into the UAE without a visa must apply for a tourist visa. A long-term visit visa enables a visitor to stay in the nation for a duration of 90 days, as opposed to a short-term visit visa’s 30-day validity.

  • Add attachments and submit your credential
  • Pay the fee and apply for an extension
  • Change in processing status.
  • Get copies of your e-visa and e-status change.
  • Verifying the last day your fresh visa is valid.




The documents to be submitted for a visa renewal are;

  • Data page of the applicant’s passport. (Your passport should have a minimum validity of six months).

The renewal fee is AED 600



Tourists who fail to renew their tourist visas will be fined. They will have to pay AED 100 fine for the extra day(s) they have overstayed.

The extra days will be calculated 10 days after the visa expiry date.
