It's a drill every UAE resident goes through every two years, or maybe three, depending on the type of visa. While most of us remember the month when our residence visa is scheduled to expire, we don't usually remember the date. Then, as the month approaches, it's common to flip through the pages of the passport to check the visa validity.

But we don't always carry our passport with us, do we? So what should we do then? All you need to check your residence visa validity is your passport number and the passport expiry date. So you're good even if you have a photocopy of your passport, or a scanned version saved on your phone.

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship provides this service through its website. A resident can enter passport information to verify if visa is still valid and can check whether the issued visa is authentic or not. Residents can also cross-check the validity of visa through this official government website.

Here's a step by step guide to track the visa validity using your passport:

  • Step 1: Visit this link - https://smartservices.ica.gov.ae/echannels/web/client/default.html#/fileValidity
  • Step 2: Select the 'Passport Information' radio button.
  • Step 3: Select either 'residency' or 'visa'.
  • Step 4: Enter passport number and passport expiry date.
  • Step 5: Enter nationality from the dropdown on the right. A corresponding number will appear on the box on the left.
  • Step 6: Select the captcha check box and click on search. The page will now display your visa details along with date of expiry.

Importance of regularly checking Dubai Visa status

After you've submitted your Dubai Visa application, you'll want to keep an eye on its progress as you make your travel plans. When checking your visa status, you may come across certain codes that indicate the current status of your application. To help you understand these codes, here's a brief rundown:

RECEIVED: Your application has been received and is now undergoing initial assessment by the relevant authorities.

UNDER PROCESSING: At this point, your application is under review. Officials are examining your documents, conducting background checks, and reaching a decision.

ISSUED: This status confirms that your visa to Dubai has been approved. You can now move forward with your travel preparations.

REJECTED: This indicates that your application wasn't successful. The exact reasons for denial may be provided in a separate notice.

For visa holders, it remains essential to regularly check your Dubai visa status. Here's why:

To stay informed about the active duration of your visa.

To anticipate when you'll need to renew or extend your visa.

To prevent potential issues, such as overstaying, which could result in penalties.

Required documents for your Dubai Visa check

The main document you'll need for your Dubai Visa check is the passport you used for your visa application . To check your UAE visa status online, you will need to provide your passport number and passport expiry date and indicate your nationality (more on this later).

Depending on the website or platform you use to check the status of your visa, you may also need to provide your visa application reference number and other personal details, such as your full name and date of birth.

Using online portals for visa status verification

The UAE government has two main portals that you can use to verify the status of your visa:

The Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs and Port Security (ICP) website .

The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai website .

How to perform a Dubai Visa check using your passport number

Step 1: Visit the ICP website.

Step 2: Select “Passport Information” and choose “Visa” as the type.

Step 3: Enter your passport number, passport expiry date, and nationality.

Step 4: Complete the human verification prompt.

Step 5: Click on the “Search” button.

How to perform a Dubai Visa check using your visa application number

Step 1: Visit the GDRFAD website.

Step 2: Click on the “File” option.

Step 3: Enter your first name, file number (your visa application number), nationality, and date of birth.

Alternative ways to check your UAE Visa status

Apart from using the abovementioned websites, you can use the following methods to check your visa status:

App: If you applied for your Dubai Visa using our platform, you can use the iVisa app to check the status of your application.

Phone: You can call the ICP customer service center at +97124955555.

Email: You can email your inquiries to [email protected] .

Online inquiry form: You can submit your inquiries through the online inquiry form on the ICP website.

Visit the ICP office: If you are in the UAE, you can visit the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs offices or the ICP Customer Happiness Centres.

Ensure you have your passport and visa details on hand for more efficient assistance.

Dealing with visa expiry, renewals, and overstays

It's important to keep track of your visa status so that you can renew it or leave the UAE before it expires. Staying beyond its expiry is considered as overstaying, leading to complications.

What can happen if you overstay your visa?

Fines: In the UAE, if you overstay your visa, you'll be charged AED 50 for each day. Continuous violations can lead to even higher charges.

Deportation: If your visa is over 60 days overdue, the authorities could deport you. This would mean you'd have to leave the UAE, and you might not be allowed back in for a while.

Travel ban: Being deported for visa issues can land you on a travel blacklist. This could keep you from returning to the UAE, even if you have a valid visa later on.

Criminal charges: Overstaying isn't just a simple matter; it can be considered breaking the law. If found guilty, you might face time in jail, additional fines, or both.

What to do after your UAE visa expires

If your visa expires while you're in the UAE, it's essential to act quickly.

The first step should be to try to extend or renew your visa. This is the most direct way to legally extend your stay. You can apply for an extension or renewal through the ICP website.

But, if extending or renewing isn't an option, you might have to exit the UAE and then apply for a new visa. In this case, you should contact the embassy or consulate of your home country for assistance.

For a smooth UAE visa application experience—and to get it done in less than 30 minutes—we recommend using our platform. Start your UAE Visa application with iVisa .

Renewing your UAE Visa

Renewing a visa in the UAE isn't a one-size-fits-all procedure. The process to follow depends on your visa type and the reason you're extending it. Generally, you'd need to fill out an application, attach the required documents, pay any fees, and then wait for a decision on your application.

For most visit and tourist visas, a 30-day renewal is possible once the immigration authorities have given their approval . And before this renewal period runs out, there's an option for a second renewal. However, those on a 90-day visit visa should note that they can only get a single 30-day extension .

According to the ICP, resident visas that last more than six months can't be renewed at the moment. But after the visa expires or is canceled, expats get a 6-month period to either get a new residence visa or leave the UAE. Plus, there are no fines during these 6 months .

Basic entry requirements

To visit Canada, you will need to meet some basic requirements, such as:

  • have a valid travel document, such as a passport,
  • be in good health,
  • have no criminal or immigration-related convictions,
  • convince an immigration officer that you have ties—such as a job, home, financial assets or family—that will take you back to your home country,
  • convince an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your visit, and
  • have enough money for your stay. (The amount of money you will need can vary. It depends on things such as how long you will stay, and whether you will stay in a hotel, or with friends or relatives.)

Inadmissibility

Some people are inadmissible—they are not allowed to come to Canada. Several things can make you inadmissible, including involvement in criminal activity, in human rights violations or in organized crime.

You can also be inadmissible for security, health or financial reasons. Find out more about inadmissibility .

How long you can stay

Most visitors can stay for up to 6 months in Canada.

At the port of entry, the border services officer may allow you to stay for less or more than 6 months. If so, they’ll put the date you need to leave by in your passport. They might also give you a document, called a visitor record, which will show the date you need to leave by.

If you don’t get a stamp in your passport, you can stay for 6 months from the day you entered Canada or until your passport expires, whichever comes first. If you need a stamp, you can ask a border services officer for one. If you arrive at an airport that uses primary inspection kiosks , ask the border officer after you finish at the kiosk.
