Emirates introduces pre-approved visa-on-arrival for Indian passport holders

Asma Ahmed - | UAE

If you are an Indian citizen and have booked your flight with Emirates, you may take advantage of their new pre-approved visa-on-arrival option. The goal of the 14-day single entry visa, which is administered by the Dubai Visa Processing Centre (DVPC), is to simplify arrival processes so that Emirates passengers may skip the lines when they arrive in Dubai.

Emirates has introduced a pre-approved visa-on-arrival service for Indian passport holders who have booked their travel with the airline. Emirates customers can benefit from a streamlined arrival process in Dubai and avoid lines at customs thanks to this initiative, carried out by the Dubai Visa Processing Centre (DVPC), which offers a 14-day single entry visa.

The primary objective of this service is to simplify arrival formalities, providing passengers with a more efficient and convenient experience when arriving in Dubai. By offering a pre-approved visa, Emirates aims to enhance customer convenience and contribute to a smoother travel journey.

This service is exclusively available to Indian passport holders who possess a valid six-month visa for the US, US Green Card, EU Residency, or UK Residency. It's crucial to remember that the "absolute discretion of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs" governs the issuance of visas, according to Emirates.

To apply for the UAE visa, eligible customers can access their booking through the 'Manage an existing booking' feature on Emirates' digital platforms. By clicking on the 'Apply for a UAE visa' link, customers will be redirected to the online UAE Visa application site powered by VFS Global Services. This platform provides comprehensive information on the requirements, terms, and conditions necessary for the visa application process.

Emirates continues to prioritize customer convenience and aims to provide a seamless travel experience for its passengers. By introducing this pre-approved visa-on-arrival service, the airline seeks to offer an additional level of convenience for Indian travelers, allowing them to navigate arrival formalities more efficiently and enjoy a hassle-free entry process into Dubai.

It's worth noting that the success of this initiative rests on the discretion of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs, emphasizing the importance of adhering to the specified eligibility criteria for visa issuance.
