If you need a visa to enter United Arab Emirates, you might want to do that in advance, as it takes about several weeks/months for the UAE embassy or consulate to process your application. Please check the website of the Federal Foreign Office to find out if you require a visa to enter United Arab Emirates.
As a rule, visa applicants must appear in person at the embassy or consulate responsible for their place of residence to submit their application, supported by all necessary documents.
Visa application forms can be obtained from the embassy or consulate free of charge (in the local language). Please consult the local UAE embassy or consulate for more information.
