Dubai: Dubai travel authorities have tightened entry guidelines for visit visa holders stressing on the necessity of carrying essential documents and funds.

According to tourism agencies interviewed by Khaleej Times, travelers on Dubai visit visas are now required to possess Dh3,000 (67,947.75 Indian Rupee)in cash, a valid return ticket, and proof of accommodation.

Firoz Maliyakkal, founder and CEO of Tahira Tours and Travels, spoke on the significance of these requirements and stated that travelers must ensure they have a valid visa, a passport with at least six months' validity, and a confirmed return ticket. Additionally, they must carry sufficient funds equivalent to Dh3,000, along with proof of accommodation in the UAE, which can be in the form of a relative's or friend’s residence or a hotel booking.

While this regulation has been in place for some time, recent enforcement measures aim to enhance monitoring and compliance among travelers. Libin Varghese from Rooh Travel and Tourism said that stringent checks at airports aim to prevent overstaying and promote transparency within the tourism sector.

Instances of travelers encountering difficulties due to non-compliance have surfaced. Abin S, a tourist arriving from Cochin International Airport, was unable to provide sufficient proof of accommodation and had to endure a four-day wait at the airport before returning to his hometown. Similarly, Indian tourist Abhishek was denied boarding at Cochin International Airport for failing to meet the documentation requirements, resulting in financial losses and the need to rebook his flight to Dubai.
