What is Dubai Express Visa?

The fast-track Dubai express visa is a fast visa processing service that allows you to get visa in 4 to 8 hours. This visa service allows you to get visa with less documentation by avoiding the regular paperwork and long waiting periods. The visa is ideal for those traveling for urgent meetings in Dubai, family medical emergencies or any other type of emergency.

If you need to travel to Dubai and time is not on your side, you most probably need the priority visa. There are times when applying for the visa is not a luxury affair but a game changer. Below are some scenarios when an express visa will come in handy :

  • Spontaneous Leisure Travel : You are sitting there in your office or at home on a Friday morning and you suddenly feel the urge to visit the UAE for the weekend or a holiday? Who said you have to plan for a vacation or holiday for months? As a matter of fact, many have testified that some of the best adventures are the unplanned ones. It is in such situations that the fast pass visa comes to aid. It gives you the luxury to make impromptu travel decisions.
  • Last-Minute Business Meetings : Investors and business people know best than to let an opportunity slide by. If you manage to get an appointment with an investor in Dubai or are invited for business meeting that is scheduled in a day or two, the express visa ensures that you reach Dubai in time for your meeting.
  • Emergencies or Family Matters : Life is very unpredictable and emergencies may arise any time. Whether a crisis or a celebration, family emergencies do not wait. You do not want to miss your relative’s engagement party, graduation or even a surprise promotion party. You may also be having a medical emergency where you have to travel to Dubai or accompany a sick relative and you don’t want to take chances with the regular visa. The express visa will enable you to get into the UAE in a snap.
  • Urgent Travel Plans : Many of us hate sticking to rigid schedules and want things done instantly. It is not always possible for things to work with your timelines, but in this case, the visa allows you the freedom to be spontaneous and still work with your time flame. Amazing, right ?

Arriving at Dubai Airport

When you acquire the express visa, you are advised to print a hard copy before arriving in Dubai. You also need to discuss Covid-19 requirements with your airline and buy a travel insurance that includes Covid coverage. Travelling in Dubai was reopened from July 7, 2020 after it was restricted during the Covid-19 pandemic.


It is mandatory to have a travel insurance that includes a Covid coverage when travelling to the UAE. The insurance covers all your emergencies while in Dubai such as an illness or an accident and also repatriation to your home country.

Consider an insurance that covers the activities you will engage in while in Dubai. you can talk to your insurer if you want a higher level of protection. In as much as some activities are covered by the insurance, some conditions may not be covered. For instance, cycling may be covered but you will not be covered if you were cycling without a helmet or riding over certain altitudes.

If engaging in extreme sports like quad biking in the sand dunes, you will need more coverage because of the increased risk. Compare the add-ons from different insurers and settle on one that suits your needs.

An insurance is not only necessary for medical emergencies, as it may come in hand in case your luggage is lost, damages or stolen or if your flight is delayed. The best time to purchase a travel insurance is when planning you Dubai trip.
