Emirates Launches Visa-On-Arrival for Indian Travelers to Dubai: Streamlining Entry with Key Requirements

Emirates Airlines, the preferred choice for Gulf-bound travelers, has unveiled an exciting update for Indian passengers. Effective January 7th, 2024, Indian travelers flying with Emirates will benefit from a pre-approved visa on arrival when journeying to Dubai, UAE.

This convenience comes with a condition: Indian passport holders must possess a valid US visa, US Green Card, EU Residency, or UK Residency, with a minimum validity of six months. The Dubai visa, linked to a valid US Visa, grants a stay of 14 days, extendable once for an additional 14 days.

In collaboration with VFS Global in India, Emirates has introduced this streamlined process exclusively for Indian passport holders booking flights to Dubai through their airline. With Emirates operating flights to 9 destinations in India, including Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Thiruvananthapuram, accessibility to this service is extensive.

For Indian travelers, navigating Dubai International Airport can often entail long queues at immigration counters, particularly given Dubai's role as a major transit hub with flights to 140 destinations worldwide. However, with the introduction of visa-on-arrival through Emirates, passengers can bypass these queues, ensuring a smoother transition through the airport.

Typically, Indian passport holders require a pre-approved visa for entry into Dubai, and visa-on-arrival is exclusively facilitated through Emirates Airlines. For stays exceeding 14 days, travelers must apply in advance, providing a valid passport, passport-sized photograph, and a detailed travel itinerary with accommodation arrangements. Additional documentation may be necessary for certain individuals.

Prior to embarking on any journey to the UAE, it is advisable to ascertain all visa requirements and eligibility criteria. VisaMint Overseas Services stands ready to assist you in navigating the documentation and application process seamlessly. Whether visiting our office or consulting with our experts remotely, ensure a hassle-free visa application experience with VisaMint.
