Please note that visa requirements are subject to change. Always check with your travel agent or nearest UAE embassy before travelling. Visitors with expired visas can be detained and/or fined.
How do I arrange a visa?
Visitors to the UAE requiring visas must have a local sponsor arrange their visa, such as our venue hotel. After you have booked your room at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Dubai they can provide a visa service against a fee of AED 350 per application for normal visa (additional charge of AED 100 for any no show / guest cancellation). The visa application has to be forwarded to the hotel at least 14 days prior to guest’s arrival as they have to forward it to the Dubai Immigration. The visa process takes about 4 working days (excluding Friday, Saturday and public holidays). Unfortunately the hotel is unable to process visas for Israeli nationals due to official restrictions and visitors should not have an Israeli entry stamp on their passport.
If you are flying with Emirates a UAE visit visa may be arranged for you upon request http://www.emirates.com/english/plan_book/essential_information/visa_passport_information/uae_visas.aspx. Contact your airline directly for visa application details. Otherwise, please visit the Dubai Department of Naturalization & Residency website (Opens an external website in a new tab) to find out more about other types of sponsors, such as hotels or companies.
