Default Visa 90 days for non EU

Hi everybody.

Where can i post a message related to visa applic?

Anyway,my girlfriend is Albanese (so non-EU) and is looking for 90 days visa to come join me.

We saw that travel agency regal tours proposes 2500 aed for the visa service. Is this reliable
/trustable? Is this the normal price? Anyone experience with that?

Many thanks for your help guyz.

Hello, any Canadians present?

I too have heard differing reports on visa crack downs.

Canadians I beleive get a tourist visa on entry. Are we still able to do visa runs after Jan 2015? Do the new rules only apply to countries not on that list of 30 western countries?

Thanks, I am new to this concept.

Yes you are still able to do visa runs. Nothing has changed for the 43 approximate nationalities from Western countries who get UAE and Oman visas automatically

hi there,

I visited Hatta border yesterday i.e on 24th April 2015 to Change my tourist visa to employment visa but UAE Immigration didn't allow me because i had Pakistani Passport. they were not cooperative at all and made me stand for an hour to get an entry pass.

Please do mention in your post about the nationalities who are being welcomed by the UAE immigration.

Thanks & Regards.

There is a list of 30 odd countries that are able to enter on a visa on entry basis. You can google what these countries are, I believe they have added 30 more starting May.

Sorry to hear about your experience. So were you able to get back that day? Or did you have to wait over night? I've never heard of a 'visitor' pass.

With the now effective reciprocal short stay visa waiver agreement signed last week between UE & UAE, UE (Schengen) nationals can now stay up to 90 days continuously in the UAE.
90 days in over a 180 days period... Wondering how this is going to affect the good old visa run...

Yes I'm wondering that too? But don't EU countries already have a 90 max in a 6 month period?

EU countries had 30 days visa on arrival so far, I am wondering if that 90 day visa is in force already?
