Schedule an Appointment

Applications for short stay visas are accepted at the Visa Application Centre through prior appointments.

Each individual requires a separate appointment and will submit a separate application. For example, if a family or group of five is applying for visas, then 5 appointments must be made.

Appointments are in high demand; applicants are requested to arrange well in advance of their visa appointment. Please note that ALL applicants must be present in person at the visa application centre at the time of application submission.

The visa fees and any optional additional service fee must be paid in cash at the Visa Application Centre at the time of application submission.

Appointments scheduled under one Application Centre cannot be transferred or changed to another Application Centre. For example, an appointment for Abu Dhabi cannot be transferred or changed to Dubai and vice versa. A fresh appointment and a new service charge will be applicable.

If the booking is unsuccessful, a new appointment can be scheduled only after 1 hour.
