Visa Rejection FAQ’S:
Q: I am from India and I applied for 2 visas almost at same time, unluckily both rejected, what will be the possible solution to get it approve?
You can apply second visa until you cancel the first one, If you had previously applied for a UAE Tourist or Visit visa and not employed (used) it, then you will need to get it cancelled from the sponsor in order to get approve new visa.

Your sponsor can be your travel agent or company etc.

Q: I was involved in theft activity 3 years ago, will I get approval in 2017?
No, Visa applicants with previous criminal offense, fraud, miss conduct committed or any other illegal activity in any Emirates of UAE will be rejected automatically.

Q: I applied for visit visa, it approved but I wasn’t travel to UAE, what is the next step now?
If someone applied Visit or tourist visa but did not enter the country, he/she may not enter UAE for next 60 days. In order to get an approval for 2nd visa, the PRO of the travel agency or sponsor must go to the immigration desk to clear previous Visa.

Q: I am from African Country, we are still using Manual Passports, am I eligible for visa?
No, the countries who are still using Manual or Hand written passports will automatically get rejected by the UAE Immigration.

    1. السلام علیکم و رحمتہ اللہ و برکتہ یا سیدی عندی واحد مشکلہ۔ بفضلک اھدنی الی الحل الکامل۔ شغلت فی الامارات سنة قبلا۔ الغاء الاقامة علی القانون و دفعت فی الاجانیة الامارات العجمان الضمان لتوقف العائلة برقم 5500 دراھم۔ منذ سنة جھدت کثیرا لاجابة الاقامة جدیدا بل لا وجدت احیانا۔ قریبا خبرت بالشرکة کفیلنی دخلت معاملات الضالان ھو اصلا علی الکذب۔ ما استطعت ان اجمع مع العائلة و ایضا ضیائعة الشغل۔ اشکرلک لاھدنی الی الطریق الصحیح۔ یعطیک اللہ فرح کثیرا من العائلتک و المالک۔ اللقاء۔

  7. Good day UAElabours,
    Kindly enlighten me and other expats. I was deported due to hepatitis B in 2015 and now I am cured. However I face a lifetime ban and as my friend checked for me, my ban is only for 6 categories work and he said I can come under tourist visa. However I have lifetime then how can I get tourist visa? I have all my medical reports with attested by UAE embassy in my country. I want to come to Dubai only as a tourist. It is quite confusing because Hepatitis B is only banned for 6 categories work but I cannot even enter as a tourist? My tourist visa will be automatically rejected because of a lifetime ban for 6 categories work. I think expat should be allowed to enter the country once they are cured and fit, at least as a tourist. Lifetime ban and denied entry completely to the country is too strict and does not make sense, because right now there are already hepatitis b people working and living in UAE.
    I believe that other expats are also having the same question as me so I am really looking for advice from you.
    Thank you very much
