Free visa in the UAE for citizens with a biometric passport

Since January 1, 2018, citizens of Ukraine with biometric travel documents for a tourist trip to the UAE do not require pre-registration of visas.

 

A visa to the United Arab Emirates is issued free of charge upon arrival to the country. Passengers of an old passport visa must still apply for an additional payment by contacting the UAE Immigration Department in advance.

 

Earlier it was reported that from December 31, 2017, a note on the abolition of visas for Ukrainians who plan to visit the UAE comes into force. Ukraine and the United Arab Emirates agreed on a visa-free regime, the press service of the President of Ukraine reported.

 

But at this stage, a full-fledged visa-free regime is still not a question. Upon arrival at the airport, the Emirate will still be issued a visa in the form of a special stamp, and this option is provided only to the owners of the biometric passport. Such a stamp allows you to stay in the UAE for 30 days from the time of arrival.
