Dubai is offering a five-year entry permit for tourists that allows them to enter the UAE multiple times and stay in the country for up to 180 days without a sponsor.
Applicants must apply through the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA), have a passport or travel document valid for at least six months, a round-trip travel ticket, valid health insurance in the UAE and bank balance of at least $4,000 or equivalent in other currencies over six months.
Applicants can stay in the UAE continuously for no longer than 90 days in a year, which can be extended to a total of 180 days. The visa costs will vary depending on the duration of stay and the applicant’s details.
Applicants must fill out the online application form, submit the required documents, and pay the fees online with a debit or credit card on the GDRFA platform.
