UAE updates Visa fee structure for Pakistanis

The UAE has announced updated visit visa fees for Pakistani nationals, effective immediately, to facilitate smoother entry procedures for tourists and visitors.

Starting June 2024, the fee for a 30-day tourist visa is AED 200, while a 60-day visa is priced at AED 300, both subject to an additional 5% value-added tax (VAT).

Additional Charges

Applicants already within the UAE who wish to obtain or extend their visa will incur supplementary charges, including Knowledge and Innovation Dirham fees totaling AED 20, and an in-country processing fee of AED 500.

Application Procedure

Applicants must submit a personal photo, a passport copy, a national identity card (for specified nationalities), valid UAE medical insurance, and proof of onward or return travel. Applications can be completed via the GDRFA website or smart application.

The UAE aims to strengthen its tourism sector by simplifying visa procedures and ensuring transparency in fee structures, maintaining its appeal as a top travel destination in the Gulf region.

For the latest updates and detailed visa requirements, applicants are encouraged to visit the official GDRFA website or consult UAE-based travel agencies.
