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.

    Big loss for Zardari and Dar family :)

      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.

      • Rajesh Rao

        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..

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

    • Xahid

      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.

      • Ali Salman

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

  • shahid

    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.

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

    • Sadly these black kapray walay have to face everyone’s hatred in this country

      • Muhammed Ovais Alam

        Don’t say ‘everyone’.
        Me and a number of people I know really respect their (real) leaders.
        Their ‘Zaakir’ and religious scholar are famous for spreading hatred too.

        • May be their leaders but no the people. I could feel how much you RESPECT them from your comments

          • Muhammed Ovais Alam

            I REPLIED after reading THEIR comments and THEIR RESPECT for other sects.

            • So, you assume sects by reading comments? And spill out the hate you are hiding inside?

              • Muhammed Ovais Alam

                LOL! Do you even read?
                I have NOT expressed any hate towards anyone in my previous comment.

                • Haif sad haif!!

            Exactly what you’re saying above. This is the hate those Aholes are creating.

  • A K

    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…

  • Ali Salman

  • Xahid

    Just like We Pakistani Sunni Loves Indian Hinduism and Americanism ?

  • Askarian

    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.
