Mission visa Dubai Abu Dhabi UAE

There are two types of visa which are referred to as Mission Visas in Dubai and the UAE.

  1. Special Mission Entry Visa - this is a 16 day visa also known as a Dubai transit visa (but is not the same as a 96 hour transit visa). It is valid for single entry only, and is not renewable. Issued by the DNRD or other UAE NRD.
  2. Mission Visa - this is a 90 day visa (not 3 months) for the purposes of allowing expats to work for a short time in the UAE, or for workers on probation, and is applied for at the Labour Department by the sponsoring company. It may be renewable and/or multi-entry (conflicting information supplied by official sources).

The Ministry of Labour is apparently planning to introduce a new visa, the Mission Visa, valid for residency and employment up to six months. Cost of the Mission Visa is expected to be 1200 dhs. This sounds similar to an already existing Mission Visa, but with no restrictions on job categories. It may be possible to change a Mission Visa to a normal Employment Visa. Information from report in Emirates Today 28 Sep 2007 about the new Mission Visa.
