Gone are the days when we had to fill out forms and apply for visas in order to travel to countries that have been on your bucket list since ages. With the ease of e-visas, the entire process for traveling abroad has become a lot simpler than before.

However, the UAE Capital has announced an even faster way to obtain a visa over the counter in just 30 mins for all Nationalities including Pakistan!


A new visa counter at the Abu Dhabi International Airport to facilitate the visa application process has been launched, the new service will be available to both transit and arriving passengers to the UAE capital.

Located at Terminal 3 transit area at the Abu Dhabi International Airport, the new counter will activate the new four-day or 96 hours, transit visa for all nationalities traveling through Abu Dhabi International Airport.

The new counter will issue various types of work and tourist visas available to travelers who did not currently fall under the present ‘Visa Upon Arrival’ scheme.  Pakistanis can now approach the visa counter in Terminal 3 to obtain the visa within 15 to 30 minutes.

The easier visa process is a key part of Abu Dhabi’s ongoing efforts to increase tourism to the capital. People having connecting flights can now choose to obtain the visa and visit the city.

The visa is priced at Dh300 and can be used by passengers having planned trips from Abu Dhabi or intermediate flights through their destination. However, travelers will only be applicable for the speedy visa if their layover exceeds four hours.

Passengers can choose to change their transit visa to a tourist visa at the airport if they are planning to extend their stay in the capital.
