How to check UAE Visa status using passport?

By Editor
Updated July 25 2023


  • Every 2-3 years, depending on the type of visa, every UAE resident must check their Visa status.
  • The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship provides an option to check the validity of Visa status.

Step by Step procedure to track UAE Visa status

We all remember the month of expiry of our passports, but we don't remember the exact date. And when the month arrives, we try to check the date of expiry, as we don’t carry the passport often, sometimes it will be postponed, and you will miss renewing.

All you need to check the residence visa validity is your passport number and the expiry date. Always keep a photocopy on your phone or a scanned version with you. For more immigration updates, click here…

Step – 1: Checking Status of UAE Visa validity Offline

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) maintains all the UAE visa records. If you want to know the UAE visa status without even using the internet, then you can contact the toll-free number listed on the ICA website. One can check the UAE visit status on the same toll-free number other than the residence status for UAE.

Step – 2: Checking the Status of UAE Visa validity Online

  1. Open the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) official website. It might take a few minutes as there is huge traffic worldwide.
  2. Change the language to English; if the website opens in Arabic
  3. There are two options for “Select by”; select the “Passport information.” So that we check with passport number only.
  4. Select the type of “Visa” or “Residency” from the option. If you are an applicant working in UAE, then you should select the Residency option; otherwise, it should be “Visa.”
  5. Scroll down the page and enter the passport number and expiry date in the relevant boxes available on the page. Then give the nationality details in the available box.
  6. Check in the box saying “I am not a robot” and then click on the ‘Search’ button.
  7. Then you can see the UAE visa status on the next page that will open in a few minutes.

Important Points to note

  • Suppose you are an applicant checking your passport status. In that case, when you follow the procedure mentioned above, the system will give the application status either approved or declined or still under process.
  • If you have got the UAE Visa from an agent, then the system does not advocate your application in UAE Visa status, which means your visa is fake. Otherwise, you will get approved or declined status information.
  • If you are staying in UAE and checking the status, you need the entry number instead of the passport number. It will not work or allow you to apply if you still have not entered.
