We are excited to let you know that Abu Dhabi has launched a new visa counter at Abu Dhabi Airport, to facilitate the visa application process within 15 to 30 minutes.
The new service, located at the Terminal 3 transit area, includes activation of the new four-day, or 96-hour, transit visa for all nationalities travelling through Abu Dhabi International Airport.
Priced at AED 300, the new 96 hour transit visa can be used by passengers with planned trips with intermediate flights through Abu Dhabi en route to their destination if their layover exceeds four hours. The transit visa can be applied for both at the new visa counter on arrival, or through the online designated portal (to be launched soon), provided passengers meet the application criteria. Travellers can also request to change their transit visa to a tourist visa (subject to immigration approval) at the airport if they are planning to extend their stay in the capital.
Visitor passports should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months.
