Dubai Visa for Sri Lankans Eligibility

There are no strict eligibility criteria to apply for a Dubai tourist visa. Individuals below 18 years of age need to apply for a visa and travel to Dubai with one or both of their parents. The passports of all Sri Lankans travelling to Dubai need to have a minimum validity of 6 months from travel date. Since Sri Lanka is not in the list of countries for on-arrival visa (like USA, Canada passport holders), Sri Lankans have to apply for a prepaid Dubai visa.

Dubai-based tourism companies (like Arabiers Dubai) are permitted to provide you with a Dubai visa for Sri Lanakans as long as you fulfill the eligibility criteria set by tourism companies. In Arabiers, we expect Sri Lankan applicants to satisfy the following criteria :


Are financially capable of completing the trip or have direct family members/ relative/friend living in UAE with a decent job.


If you are going for a holiday and have no family members in UAE we will require proof that you are a legit traveler.


If you are going to seek employment, we won't provide you with a tourist visa.


We will request you to agree that you will either return on time or extend your stay, never overstay your visa.

Any individual who owns any business overseas and wants to start a business in the UAE qualifies as an eligible entrepreneur. Professionals from any part of the world with entrepreneurial expertise are able to apply for a business visa.

Remote work visas

A remote work visa permits you to live in the UAE while working for your current company outside of the country. The visa has a validity period of one year. The UAE cabinet implemented the new Remote Work Visas plan to allow employees from all over the world to work remotely from the UAE. Their main goal is to attract talents and skills from all over the world. The one-year visa permits foreigners to enter the UAE on their own sponsorship and work in accordance with the visa's terms and conditions.
