UAE government recently amended its visa rules for job exploration entry visas, visit visas, multi-entry tourist visas as well as other visas to make the country more attractive to skilled expatriates. Many of the announced changes will take effect from Sept 2022.

Several benefits are being offered to facilitate the accommodation of family members. After their residence permit is canceled or expires, residents will be given a "long flexible grace period of up to six months" to stay in the country.

The new visa rules will grant visitors a variety of visas for multiple visit purposes without the need for a host or sponsor for the first time. These visas will have flexible duration to accommodate the needs of the visitors and the purpose of their visit.

So here we find the new changes that will be effected from September 2022;

This new visa will not require the participation of the sponsor. Applicants must have a bank balance of $4,000 (approximately 3.2 lakh Indian Rupees) for the six months prior to the visa application. People can stay in the UAE for 90 consecutive days, with the only restriction that they stay no more than 180 days in a year.

Visit Visa
