During the pandemic, Abu Dhabi has suspended all visa services with the exception of their visa on arrival program at the airport. Therefore, any foreign citizen that is eligible for a visa on arrival is permitted to travel to Abu Dhabi at this time.

Please make sure that application forms are not printed on double-sided paper.

The Multiple Entry visa may only used at the Dubai Airport. Please plan accordingly.
This is focusing solely on the city of Abu Dhabi.
Any traveler coming from a country on the green list will not have to fulfill the quarantine requirements and will only be subject to the testing requirements. Currently, the green list of countries includes: Australia, Brunei, China, Greece, Greenland, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Mauritius, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Tajikistan, Thailand, Uzbekistan, Vietnam.
Most countries not included on the green list can still travel to Abu Dhabi, as long as they qualify for a visa on arrival and they agree to fulfill a quarantine requirement of 10 days.


Testing Requirements for Abu Dhabi.
Pre-Flight . In order to board your flight for Abu Dhabi, all passengers must perform a PCR test no longer than 96 hours before departure and show proof of the negative results. Passengers coming from the UK will only have a 72-hour window.

Test on Arrival. All passengers will also be given a PCR test upon arrival. Even if you are traveling from a country on the ‘green’ list, you must isolate until test results become available, usually 12-24 hours.

Test on Day 6 and Day 12 for Green Countries. Travelers who are coming from ‘green’ list countries and therefore exempt from the 10-day quarantine must also take a PCR test on day 6 and day 12 of their trip.

Test on Day 8 for Quarantine Countries. Travelers who are coming from countries NOT included on the ‘green’ list, and who are required to quarantine for 10 days, must take a PCR test on day 8 of their trip in order to be released from quarantine on day 10 and have the wristband removed.

Passengers under 12 years of age are exempt from testing.

The Embassy of United Arab Emirates does not accept applications for this type of visa from citizens of Canada. The good news is that the visa is issued on arrival.

Sounds good! What else do I need to know while planning a trip to United Arab Emirates?

  • First, check the current validity of your passport.

    All travelers will need a passport valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from United Arab Emirates. However, we strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times. VisaHQ can assist U.S. citizens with a full range of expedited passport services, including new passport application and passport renewal.

  • Second, make sure your passport has blank Visa pages.

    Most destinations, including United Arab Emirates, require that you have adequate un-used pages in your passport, allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visa section of your passport before any international travel.

  • Finally, confirm if transit visa is required for any connections.

    Check with your airline in case you have connecting flights overseas as part of your journey to United Arab Emirates. It may be the case that countries you pass through en route to your destination may require a separate transit visa. Please refer to visa requirements of the specific country.

  • United Arab Emirates visa for citizens of Canada is required. For more information please contact the nearest United Arab Emirates embassy.
