1 min read

Tourists travelling to the UAE during the summer won’t need to pay visa fees for dependents aged 18 years or below, the UAE Cabinet announced on Sunday.

The fee exemption will be applicable between July 15 and September 15 every year and is expected to boost tourist numbers during the off-peak season.

The decision follows the exemption of transit tourists from visa fees for the first 48 hours.

A 14-day express tourist visa costs Dh497 per head and a 30-day multi-entry tourist visa costs Dh917 if the traveller purchases it online.
