Visa Procedure

It's always better to have all your important documents at one place before applying for a visa. This saves you valuable time as you get prepared for your international travel. It is also important to determine the type of visa you will require, to reduce the confusion during the application process.

To apply for non-immigrant or travelling visa, you will require the following documents:

  • Coloured Passport sized photograph
  • Copy of the first and last pages of your Passport
  • Duly filled Application form
  • Return air ticket (usually not needed at the time of Visa application)

Please be careful while filling the form as errors may lead to your application being rejected. Also, be mindful of the items you carry with you as Dubai has very strict rules and regulations when it comes to the list of prohibited items.

Customer Reviews


Teena Bhatia

We visited Dubai for our honeymoon. We found the city to be inviting and friendly. We took part in the night safari and also enjoyed the unique hospitality that only Dubai can give. All was going well until the last day of our trip, when we lost our baggage at the airport. If it wasn’t for ICICI Lombard travel insurance, we would have gotten into serious trouble


Garima Singh

This was my first ever solo trip. I was always fascinated with the skyline and unique demographics of Dubai. I was just amazed by the sheer architectural brilliance of Burj Khalifa. On my way back to the hotel, I realized that my passport was missing. ICICI Lombard travel insurance came as a life saver for what could have been an extremely difficult situation.”
