UAE Raises Visa Fees for Canadian Travelers-2010

UAE Canada

Canadian Travelers May Have to Pay Up to $1,000 for Visas

Canadians traveling to the United Arab Emirates may be facing higher fees as the UAE has changes its fee structure for visas.

A 30-day visa now costs $250, a 90-day visa costs $500 and a six-month, multiple-entry visa costs $1,000, which is a very high price by international standards. Previously, a one-month visa to the UAE for Canadians was free. Over 30 other countries still enjoy free 30-day visas when visiting the UAE.

The maximum duration of each visit for the six-month multiple-entry visa is 14 days.

Unfortunately, many Canadians live in the UAE and many people in the UAE have relatives in Canada, presenting a challenge for travelers to and from Canada with the new fees.

Visa Increase for Canadian Travelers from UAE

The UAE’s large air carriers had been looking to increase the number of flights to and from Canada, but negotiations haven’t been going very well (Canada has denied expanded landing rights for the UAE) and it would appear that the UAE is retaliating by increasing visa fees.

The UAE are home to about 25,000 Canadians and about 200 Canadian businesses operate in the UAE, and the UAE has stated that the mere six weekly flights between the countries was not enough for such active trading partners. The UAE is the largest trading partner with Canada in that region of the world.

The new visa fees for Canadian travelers start on January 2, 2011, and Canadians are being asked to apply for visas at least 15 days before their departure.

I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
