Fresh graduates from universities and tourists planning to visit Dubai will be delighted to know the new visa facilities approved at a meeting at the UAE Cabinet.
Job seekers can avail a six months-temporary visa
Finding a job won’t be as time-constrained as it used to be, thanks to the newly approved six months temporary visa, which comes without any fees! This move will not only make it easier to find employment but will also make it simpler for companies to recruit and eliminate the rushed process of getting a visa.
In a cabinet meeting today we approved reforms including replacing the bank guarantee system for private sector employees, with a low-cost insurance scheme. This will release AED 14 billion back to the private sector companies and will further lower the cost of doing business . pic.twitter.com/4BYNzldJ0S

Dubai International Airport has been the busiest airport for international travel for four years and according to statistics, the airport received 88.2 million passengers last year and 70% of them are transit passengers. With a whopping amount of transit passengers at the airport, a 96 hours entry visa was introduced to let transit tourists travel around the city and now with the newly approved regulation, they don’t have to pay the entry visa fees for their first 48 hours of stay.
The cabinet approves new decision has also been approved to exempt transit passengers from all entry fees for the first 48 hours. Transit visa can be extended for up to 96 hours for a fee of only AED 50. #UAEpic.twitter.com/4FUYpZEQEq
From the UAE cabinet meeting, it was also approved that two-years-long visas will be granted to “talented” and “outstanding” students, whilst residents changing their visas won’t have to exit and re enter the city. The visa change can be adjusted without leaving Dubai. All these visa changes have come three weeks after the announcement of decade-long visas for investors, innovators and specialists.
