5-year multiple entry tourist visa for UAE

United Arab Emirates 5-year multiple entry tourist visa


The 5-year Dubai visa is a very recent introduction. Previously, tourist visas only had a validity of 30 to 90 days from the date of arrival in Dubai, whether they were single-entry or multiple-entry tourist visas.

This announcement was made in the first week of January 2020 by the UAE Cabinet. On January 6 this year, the government of Dubai said on Twitter that the amendment had been approved by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The reason why this introduction was made is that Dubai welcomes over 20 million tourists every year. It has easily become one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

Get local contact for United Arab Emirates Five Year Multi-Entry Tourist Visa:-

A very frequently asked question about getting a 5 year UAE visa for Indians (5 year multiple entry visa) is how to get a local contact in the UAE. While filling in the visa application form, you will come across a field where you will need to provide contact details for a local in the UAE.

The best way to provide contact details is to ask your friends, family or relatives in the UAE. If you have no knowledge in the UAE, you can ask a hotel if they can help you with the details. However, many larger hotels do not list a mobile phone number, which could be problematic as you would need one.

The final option would be to book accommodation at a small hotel or Airbnb that would be willing to provide you with these details. Or you can even ask friends in India if they know anyone in the UAE who would be willing to help you.
