No - A visa is not required for travel to UAE

Thursday, August 13, 2020

Temporary visa and entry suspension: Please be advised that the United Arab Emirates have suspended entry and the issuance of all visas until further notice. The entry suspension does not apply to Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Saudi Arabia passport holders. This is a rapidly changing situation. Travisa is monitoring the situation closely so check our website for updates.

A visa waiver valid for 30 days from date of issue is available upon arrival in Qatar. The waiver allows single and multiple entries and entitles the traveller to spend up to 30 days in Qatar. A further 30 days extension is possible. To be eligible the traveller must:

  • Hold a passport valid at least six months on entry with two blank visa pages
  • Hold proof of sufficient funds to cover the duration of stay
  • Hold proof of onward/return airline tickets
  • Confirm with the airline that boarding will be permitted without a visa as these conditions are subject to change
