UAE welcomes thousands of travellers every year. Most of these travel to the UAE for tourism. However, a majority of them also travel to the UAE for work or studies. In recent years, the number of UAE Visa applications has been rising steadily. The UAE follows a very simple Visa process. Aspiring immigrants need to complete an application and submit the same. They also need to submit the below documents along with the application: \tCopies of the passport \tInvitation letter from a sponsor or host in the UAE \tFor Tourist Visas, submitting return tickets is mandatory \tEducational documents \tProof of funds Even though the process is pretty straightforward, rejections do happen. Here are some of the reasons for UAE Visa rejections: \tThe UAE Visa Dept. does not accept handwritten passports. Such applications are rejected right away. \tHaving a criminal record in the UAE is certain to get your Visa application rejected \tAt times some immigrants hold a Resident Visa but fail to cancel the same before leaving the country. It is mandatory that you cancel your previous Visa before applying for a new one. \tIf you had applied for an Employment Visa but did not enter the country, you will first need to clear the same \tIf you had a Tourist Visa for UAE but did not visit the country, you would need to get that cleared first. The PRO of the Travel Agency needs to visit the Immigration Dept. to do the same. \tAny errors on the Visa application like the spelling of the name, passport number etc would result in your Visa getting denied \tNowadays most people prefer to submit their Visa application online. During an online Visa submission, you also need to upload scanned copies of the supporting documents, as per Khaleej Times. The uploaded documents should be clear and legible. If they are not, that also results in a Visa rejection. If you are looking to Study, Work, Visit, Invest, Travel or Migrate to UAE, talk to Y-Axis, the World’s No.1 Immigration & Visa Company.
