As of today, 1st of June, 90-day Dubai tourist visas will no longer be given to nationals of the Philippines and Pakistan.
A memo was circulated earlier today by Dubai Immigration to all travel agencies instructing them to stop accepting applications for the 90 days tourist visa to those two nationalities and only allow 14 days or 30 days visa.
Applications made yesterday will still be valid, and anyone already holding a 90 days visa will still be able to use it.
A manager at a Dubai travel agency commented: “We are not sure weather this is a temporary or permanent stop. As of now we have been instructed not to accept applications. There is a possibility that we process the applications through an other Emirate but will definitely have higher restrictions and would be more costly”.
