Emirates and VFS Global have partnered exclusively to offer Indian passport holders who have booked travel with the airline a pre-approved visa-on-arrival option.
This new initiative, which is being fulfilled by Dubai Visa Processing Centre* (DVPC) and issued as a 14-day single entry visa, will allow Emirates customers to arrive in Dubai without having to wait in queue and will streamline their arrival formalities by allowing them to breeze through customs before leaving the city.
Customers of Emirates may make their travel arrangements via emirates.com or by using their preferred travel agency. Customers should click the “apply for a UAE visa” link on emirates.com after retrieving their booking through “Manage an existing booking.” They will be taken to the VFS Global Services-powered online application page for a UAE visa, which outlines the prerequisites, terms, and conditions to streamline the application process.

Only Indian citizens with a valid six-month visa for the US, a US Green Card, EU residency, or UK residency may use this service. Visas are still issued at the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs’ complete discretion.
Emirates currently operates 167 weekly flights to nine destinations in India, connecting passengers to Dubai and a global network of over 140 destinations. The Indian cities on the airline’s network are Thiruvananthapuram, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Ahmedabad.
