Best option to apply for Dubai Visa online

Whats the best option to apply for Dubai Visa online ?

Me and wife have Indian Passports and will be traveling to Dubai in December .

A google search brings up a lot of different websites.

We are only flying one-way by Emirates , flying back on Indi-go so the emirates system which seems to be cheapest ~$95 is not an option

another option will be to ask the hotel or a travel agent,, but these will cost you much more and they may ask for some sort of grantees

Hi Imtiaz, even I am planning for a trip to Dubai and I am going with Thomas Cook for my visa requirements. They provide an end-to-end service and all you need to do is provide them the required documents. They are charging around 8,000/- per person. I have always used their visa services and its always been a smooth experience with me. Hope this helps

There are a lot of travel agents who could do visa just with the pic and passport copy for INR 7,000.

I prefer UAE online e visa than on arrival visa, If you apply online visa, It will be approved in a week and you can start travel. If you have any one in UAE, they can also get visit visa for you, which is more easy no headache for you.

Hi All,

Do we have an option of 96 hrs Transit Visa on arrival in Dubai through Emirates for Indian citizens (US residents). Emirates airlines only have on-line option for 30 day Visa for $100. 4 different Customer Service agents of Emirates airlines gave 4 different answers on Transit Visa. Some said it is not just 96 hrs from landing to leaving BUT Visa folks also count the days. So 5 days, which could be less than 96 hrs depending on arrival/leaving times does not qualify for 96 hrs Transit visa.

Does an Indian citizen have an option of getting 96 hrs Transit Visa on arrival. I am planning <96 hrs layover in Dubai, enroute to India.

Thanks for all your help

There is no option for visa on arrival and you will have to pre apply

Thanks much Latimer for taking time to reply. Somehow Emirates Airlines has removed the on-line option of 96 hrs Transit Visa, which could be applied 15 days before travel date. So I have to pay extra to get the 30 days Visa.

Hi Sum M

I am also in the same boat as you. So should we get a tourist visa rather than a transit visa ? Our stay in UAE would be exactly 4 days ~ 96 hrs so I thought applying for 96 hour visa would be an option
