The UAE Visa has a certain validity (to enter and exit) after the visa is issued.

Guests are informed to adhere and exit within the visa validity. As a new rule, Asiatravel.com will immediately impose BLACKLIST penalty to overstaying guest. This penalty can only be lifted upon full payment of AED 5700 to Asiatravel.com and settlement of any other incurred penalty charges by the UAE Immigration.



Effective October 2016, for those who intend to transfer from Tourist Visa to Employment Visa without exiting the country, there is a penalty fee of AED 27,500. Asiatravel.com serves the right to act on this by filing a case, impose and charge the penalty to the guest with full intention to disregard UAE Visa law and misuse of our visa sponsorship which is valid for tourism purpose only.

Once your Visa Application is submitted to Immigration Department, the Visa Application Fee is non-refundable whether it is approved or rejected and/or if the Passenger does not use the Visa.

- Should your Visa Application is rejected; we will provide you with the proof of rejection from the Immigration Department for your reference and record.

- In case of rejection, if guest and/or sponsor would wish to re-apply, a new processing fee will be collected. Reapplication could be done, but is still not guaranteed that the Immigration Department will initiate Visa Approval.
