The Dubai tourist visa for 5 years was announced by the cabinet in 2020. The meeting was chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. This step was taken by the government to reaffirm the country’s position as one of the top global tourist destinations. The laws and regulations including the visas have been designed to attract visitors. The implementation of the visa is the responsibility of the federal authority of identity and citizenship. The terms and conditions of the multiple entry five-year visa will be the same as for the tourist visa. The period of stay will be six months at a stretch in UAE for every entry.
Imagine you are visiting UAE and don’t want to come back as planned, but you will have to come back because of the hectic visa extension process. But now, the five-year tourist visa will not have a hectic process. With a 5-year tourist visa, you can spend more time with your loved ones residing in the UAE. This will double the number of tourists and grow tourism in UAE.

- There will be no repeated processes of applying for the visa
- Multiple payments are avoided
- Staying with your loved ones for a longer period
