The 30 Days Multiple Entry Visa is valid for 58 days from the day it’s issued and it’s the ideal choice for those looking to have a short stay in Dubai or the UAE while making multiple entries to attend meetings, conferences or making stopover short stays.

This type of a visa makes it possible for a visitor to make Dubai his base and visit nearby countries and therefore making multiple entries through the Dubai airport using the same visa. That helps the visitor save a lot of time and expenses that would be incurred in having separate visas made for each entry.

The visa is valid for 30 days from the day the first entry is made into Dubai. The visa can be extended twice for 30 days after the payment of a fee of AED 850 each time.
