With the comprehensive visa reforms announced by the UAE being trialled, many residents have acknowledged the five-year multiple-entry tourist visa has helped them spend more time with their parents.
Many of them are using the visa to ease the travel and entry procedures of their parents.
The five-year, multiple-entry tourist visa to the UAE was part of the sweeping visa reforms announced by the UAE earlier this year in an effort to attract more talent to the country. With the visa, tourists can enter the UAE multiple times on self-sponsorship and remain in the country for 90 days during each visit.
Holders can extend the visas for 90 days in addition to the initial 90 days without leaving the country. According to authorities, the visa allows families outside the country to spend more time with their loved ones in the UAE. People applying for the multiple entry visa need to provide documents including bank statement for the last six months with a balance of $4,000 or its equivalent in foreign currencies, proof of UAE health insurance, copy of the flight ticket and proof of residence, like an invitation letter from friends and family in the UAE.
