UAE’s visiting visa regulations: Recent changes and essential items required for travelers


New Guidelines for UAE Visit Visa Holders: Essential Documents for a Hassle-Free Travel Experience

Travelers planning to visit the UAE on a visit visa must now adhere to new guidelines to ensure a smooth and trouble-free journey. Mr. Abhinav, Manager Director of Seaman Tours, has provided a comprehensive list of necessary documents that travelers should have ready. These requirements, effective from mid-May 2024, have already impacted many passengers, emphasizing the importance of proper preparation.

To avoid any inconvenience at the airport, travelers must have the following documents:

  1. Valid Return Ticket: Ensure that your return ticket is confirmed.
  2. Accommodation Details: Provide the address of your friends or relatives with whom you will be staying. If you do not have any acquaintances residing in the UAE, you must present a hotel voucher as proof of accommodation.
  3. Valid Passport: Your passport must be valid for at least six months from the date of travel.
  4. Proof of Funds: You must have a minimum of AED 3000 either in your bank account or as cash.

These updated regulations have been strictly enforced since May 15, 2024. Previously, travelers who obtained their visas through travel agencies often only required a return ticket. However, the new rules mandate additional documentation to ensure compliance and security.

Mr. Abhinav explained that similar requirements were briefly in place post-COVID-19, as Indian airports enforced stricter documentation checks for outbound travelers. To avoid any last-minute surprises, he advises all passengers to carry the necessary documents and sufficient funds.

He also mentioned Seaman Tours has proactively informed its customers about these changes. All staff members have been instructed to communicate the updated guidelines to ensure that travelers have a seamless experience.

In summary, passengers traveling to the UAE on a visit visa should be well-prepared with the above-mentioned documents. Adhering to these guidelines will help avoid any issues at the airport and ensure a smooth entry into the UAE.
