Dubai Ends 90-Day Visa for Pakistanis

As of today, the Dubai administration has terminated the 90 day tourist visa option for Pakistanis. Along with Pakistanis, the new rule change also applies to the citizens of Philippines.

Reportedly, a memo was circulated by Dubai Immigration to all travel agencies informing them to stop accepting applications for 90 day tourist visas for people holding the two aforementioned nationalities.

The new rule has come into effect from 1st June 2017. Pakistani and Filipino nationals will only be allowed to apply for 14 day or 30 day tourist visas, stated the memo.

Any applications made by 31st May will still be considered valid and will be processed under the regular rules and regulations. Pakistanis or Filipinos who are already holding a 90 day visa also don’t need to worry for now as the visa is still considered valid until it expires.

Pakistani and Filipino nationals will only be allowed to apply for 14 day or 30 day tourist visas, stated the memo.

An official from a travel agency in Dubai stated:

“We are not sure whether this is a temporary or permanent stop. As of now we have been instructed not to accept applications. There is a possibility that we process the applications through another Emirate but that will definitely mean higher restrictions and would be more costly”.


Update: UAE Embassy Denies 90-Days Visa Ban for Pakistanis


It should be mentioned here that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) toughened its visa policies for Pakistanis, especially for official and diplomatic passport holders, during the latter part of November.

Interestingly enough, the strictness for Pakistanis comes just as UAE makes rules for Indians and Israelis more lenient. UAE has increased leniency towards Indians, who can now avail visa-on-arrival if they have US visas. Citizens of Israel are now being offered visa-free stays in the UAE.

Looking to travel to Dubai soon? How do you feel about these new rules? Sound off in the comments below.

    • Silly comment. They don’t go on visit visas. Don’t go political on every topic.

      Indians are getting special treatment because UAE is heavily investing in India and UAE is now having its big investment in India.

      UAE is not having ideal relations with Pakistani governments since last two decades, we should know this.

      Though Pakistanis are heavily investing in UAE (for whitening of money specially) like Indians and such investments are welcomed but UAE knows that 90% of this investment is black money.

      • As India rises, expect this lopsided treatment (of Pak compared to Ind) to occur more frequently and more deeply. For what you have seen in the 4 or 5 years is just the beginning of India’s rise.
        Concomitant with India’s rise, Pakistan will fall harder still. For Pak also, this is just the beginning, in the opposite direction. Needlessly making enemies of the US was a very unwise thing to do.
        This is not meant to be a curse, or a putdown, just a description of things as they appear.

  • When our Nation is confused about its own identity and has a crisis of faith in itself, along with politicians who are almost considered to be deities but turn beggars as soon their feet touch foreign soil, why would anyone be concerned about the well-being of such a hypocritical nation and its relations.. What has happened to us..

    • Isreal aur india ko asaani di hai read it again, thori se himat wahabi takffirion kay khalaf bolnai ki b rakhlo al bakistanion,sirf chataty he raho gay.

        • its partiality,
          but now a days pakistan is being terrorism country. its great step for security against terror.

      • Waise Iran main Pakistaniyoun (Sunniyoun) ki bari izzat hai aur bari araam se aana jana krletay hain woh.

        • acha mujhe nahe pata tha kabi gaya nahe iran. mainai to souna hai wo india ka ziyada dost aur qareeb hai.

          lakien haan UAE aur gulf key countries mien raha houn to andaza hai wahan kia haal kertai haien humhara. israel aur trump ko jo so called msulim mumalik apnai aqa maan laien un kay liye lant bi thori hai.

    • Bhaijaan jo log job dhundne jatay hai aur wahan paidal chal ke jobs dhundtey hai un ke liye ye buri khaber hai qki aik month mai toh job nai milni,,, time lagta hai aur sara paisa kharch kr ke wapis berogari ke sath aa jatay hai ,,,,These mother fuckers, illiterate people making rules just for poor countries, I hate these bloody UAE countries like saudi arab, qatar etc where Arabians are making rules.

      • Oye pakhundi babey, hajj umrah karne na jaen Saudi Arab wahan wahabiyon ka kabza hey. Lanat teri poori barelvi nasal par.

  • Dubai should totally ban Pakistani for visas
    if they ban visa then Pakistani will seriously think about Pakistan future

    • Pakistani still think about future of Pakistan, its the lamer govt. who just think about themselves.
      Look at the govt. of dubai, how they work and how they facilitate their peoples, thats why everyone want to live their, no matter even the weather is like hell.

      • This has nothing to do with government, its their policy and inclination towards India, world politics is changing.

  • Sea pack par hati hui hay UAE apni frustration kahin to niakalengay , a big loss for those who are planning for job hunting in UAE.

    • yes that’s it. Wait n See, these who are banning Pakistan and restricting Pakistan will come soon.. Every Dog has a Day..

  • And all those ‘black kapray walay’ people came here to express their hate against other sects.

  • Well u can have everything in UAE, its just another Modern country, but if it happens in Pakistan its against Islam or against our values. Our problem is both our Civilian and armed Forces institutions .. both are equal to be blamed in the mess we have…

    • and how you more ALIM pls explain. Why Saudis and UAE wahabi loves Israel USA and Indians. Dear Alim o Fazil can you explain. you would have no answer i know???

  • Their country their rules. Just like one day England will follow suit and block Pakistanis. We need to understand the political landscape is changing worldwide. We have more enemies than friends. They don’t want us staying their taking their jobs. Fair enough. Just my two cents.

  • Seem fake news. Gulfnews and khaleej times have not reported this news.
    Propakistani is posting news without verification.

    • Dubai ends or UAE ends 90 days visa?
      UAE is having 7 states. Dubai is one of them.
      Pro Pakistani is posting a fake news without proper knowledge.

  • Totally fake news.. confirmed from embassy.Propakistani kch to sharam kro..rating kay chakar mai kch bh likh jatay ho

  • Please stop spreading fake news!!! If you making fake news then don’t say sorry in next posts..pakistani

  • Such baseless allegations against m that they have done this and that.. there isn’t any sort of 90 days ban. Grow up man.. PRO pakistani Shame on you

  • Pro Pakistani has turned into a click bait website. Quality and content is out the window. No research is done, and no credibile source is referred to.

  • This is totally false news, I wish the poster had verified it before putting it up.
    I dont understand why we always compare everything with India.

    I got a 90day visa after 1st June for 90 days.
