In a move aimed at streamlining entry processes for tourists and visitors, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced revised visit visa fees for Pakistani nationals, effective immediately from June 2024.

Under the updated fee structure, Pakistani citizens applying for a 30-day tourist visa will now be required to pay AED 200, while those opting for a 60-day visa will incur a fee of AED 300. These fees are subject to an additional 5% value-added tax (VAT), in line with the UAE's taxation policies.

Moreover, applicants who are already within the UAE and wish to obtain or extend their visa will face supplementary charges. These include Knowledge and Innovation Dirham fees amounting to AED 20, alongside an in-country processing fee of AED 500.

To streamline the application process, interested individuals must submit a personal photo, a copy of their passport, their national identity card (for specified nationalities), valid UAE medical insurance, and proof of onward or return travel. Applications can be conveniently processed through the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) website or its smart application.

The UAE's decision to update its visa fee structure underscores its commitment to enhancing transparency and accessibility within its tourism sector. By simplifying visa procedures and ensuring clarity in fee structures, the UAE aims to maintain its status as a premier travel destination in the Gulf region.

Travelers are advised to consult the official GDRFA website or local UAE-based travel agencies for the most up-to-date information on visa requirements and application procedures.
