The process of obtaining a visa
Obtaining an entry permit
You give us the documents, we verify, translate, get them legally certified and forward them to the relevant ministries. Simultaneously, we arrange an entry permit for you, which remains valid for 2 months. If you are abroad when the permit is issued, you must arrive before the permit expires.
Changing visa status
The moment you set foot in the UAE, a specific status is allocated to you. In most cases, you can enter the country either as a tourist or a resident. If you are abroad when your entry permit is issued, your status will automatically change to “non-tourist” upon border crossing. If your entry permit is issued while you are already in the UAE, the status is changed manually.
Undergoing a medical examination
Undergoing a medical examination is a compulsory step in the process of applying for any kind of visa. The medical examination includes blood analysis and fluorography.
Submission of biometric data
Submission of biometric data is yet another obligatory step. This procedure must be completed in the UAE. Essentially, you just need to provide your fingerprints.
Issuance of a resident visa
All paperwork is coordinated through the immigration service. Provided everything has been prepared accurately, the ministries will give their approval and issue the visa.
Acquisition of an Emirates ID
Once your visa is issued, you will be given a plastic card with a unique identification number for accessing services within the UAE.
