In Dubai, the process of Visa termination is as swift as the process of applying for it. You cAn easily terminate your Tourist visa by stating a valid and justified reason.



If you are applying for a Dubai tourist visa cancellation then make sure you have these requirements checked:

  • A stamped application for Visa cancellation, signed by the Sponsor.
  • If a corporation or an organisation is acting as a sponsor, then complete the cancellation agreement stamped with the organisation's stamp.
  • Clearing Certificate from the Ministry of Natural  Resources and Emiratisation.

A simple suggestion in such a situation is that there is not any definitive need to cancel your visa as anyway the visa is going to be cancelled by the UAE immigration department after 60 days of issuing the visa. After two months the visa will be terminated automatically, so you don't need to stress over the process of cancelling and pay the cancellation fee unnecessarily.

But, if after getting the visa, you realize it is of a shorter duration than the expected time of your visit to the city or if due to some new scenarios you are applying for a residence visa, employment visa, or any other visa type then it becomes mandatory to cancel your earlier tourist visa. 

If you apply for another visa type without cancelling your prior tourist visa, not only will your visa application process get rejected, but you may find it difficult to get a UAE visa in future. So a proper cancellation of your tourist visa must be initiated. To conduct the process of visa application, you can contact the agency through which you applied for the visa.
