Documents Required for a Dubai Tourist Visa

Individuals who are looking for a tourist visa to visit Dubai need to provide the following documentation:

  • Passport – A legitimate passport that verifies the individual's nationality is required. It is necessary to produce scanned copies of the passport (in the case of online applications). In order for the visa application to be approved, the passport must be valid for at least 6 months. The first and last pages of the passport must be included. The scanned copies are required to be coloured, as black and white versions are more likely to be rejected.
  • Application form – Applicants must complete the visa application form and it should also be signed by them. Individuals should double-check that the information given is correct since any inaccuracies could cause delays.
  • Photographs – A photograph that had been taken recently of the individual must be attached to the application. The photo must be in colour and no older than 6 months. It must meet specific government-imposed requirements.
  • Itinerary – The application should include the travel plan. This should include the dates you plan to travel, a copy of the flight tickets, and information about the hotel where you will be staying. This is essentially required to show authorities that the applicant intends to depart the country within a certain time frame.
  • Financial data – Most of the time, this isn't necessary. Although it is rarely required, it is safer to have the information on hand. Officials may inquire about this if they have concerns about an applicant's financial situation and if he or she will be able to make a living in the country on a limited budget.
  • Address proof – This is not a requirement that is posed in every circumstance. When the applicant's current permanent residency address differs from the applicant's nationality, this question can be asked.

Depending on the particular applicant, authorities may request any other documents in addition to those listed above. In such situations, it is critical to have all additional relevant information on hand.
