According to the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai, Indians visiting the UAE will get visa-on-arrival.

However, the rule will apply only to Indians who are already residency visa holders of the United Kingdom or the European Union.

A video on GDRFA’s twitter account revealed that, “Indian citizens holding normal passports with a residence visa from the UK and European Union countries can take an entry permit on all UAE entry points, provided the validity of the residence visa issues by the UK or European Union is not less than six months.”

Once done, passengers can go to the Marhaba service counter to get their entry permit for AED100 and AED20 service charges. They can then proceed to passport control.
