Entry Requirements

Health

Please note that the advice can change and consumers should continue to check it until they travel. 

Entry Requirements 

You must ensure you have a valid passport to travel on. 

If you’re a British Citizen you can get a visitor’s visa on arrival in the UAE. In the past, this visa has allowed the visitor to stay in the UAE for up to 30 days. The visa has terminated automatically on departure and a new visa issued on arrival each time the same visitor returns to the UAE. 

That approach continues to be applied in most cases, but in some cases, British citizens (and visitors of some other nationalities) who have left the UAE and returned again within the 30 day period of stay granted at the time of the first arrival, haven’t received a new visa. Instead, their stay has been limited to the initial 30 day period. 

If you have any questions on the validity or expiry of your visa, contact UAE Immigration directly in Dubai on 04-3980000 or in Abu Dhabi on 02-4024500. If you’re residing outside the UAE, contact the nearest UAE Embassy for advice.

Health 

Visit your health professional at least 8 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations or other preventive measures. 

Certain prescribed and over the counter medicines that are available in the UK but not in the UAE may not be able to be brought into the country without prior permission from the UAE Ministry of Health.

Following changes in October 2018, it is now a requirement for everyone entering the UAE to complete an electronic form to obtain approval to carry medication for personal use.

For more information on controlled medicines please see the UAE Ministry of Health Website or Gov.UK.

Cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus in patients from the United Arab Emirates have been reported to the World Health Organization. There have also been cases of Legionnaires’ disease among British nationals who have recently travelled from Dubai. For the latest information and advice, see the website of the National Travel Health Network and Centre(NaTHNaC). 

Please note that passport, visa and health requirements can change. It is every traveller’s responsibility to ensure they have a valid passport, any required visas, and all the necessary vaccinations/health requirements as well as adequate insurance.
