Laws in the United Arab Emirates require all non-national students to obtain a visa for the duration of their studies. Student visas can be issued by the college for duration of 12 months; hence an undergraduate student may require 2 or 3 renewals during their course.
The procedure for applying for a Student Visa cannot commence until you have accepted your Offer of Admission and paid your tuition fees along with the Student Visa Charges outlined below. The process normally takes 15-20 days and typically applications undergo a security check by UAE government authorities. You are advised to apply as early as possible if you require a Student Visa.
