However, there may be delays if the visa application is for some unforeseen reason blacklisted or referred to the security authorities.

Traveling to and fro between Dubai and Oman and the time taken to process the visa add up to around 3-5 days. This delay is caused by the land border authorities who take time to update the exit status.

We arrange the return air tickets. We also make sure that we process a same day express visa for you. We apply for the visa the moment you confirm that you have exited Dubai airport.
