If your loved ones are planning a trip to the UAE, here’s a reminder: Tourists can apply for a family group visit visa, where children receive a visa free of charge.

The family group visit visa allows children under 18 years of age to receive a visa free of charge, while parents pay their own fee.

saying Subair Thekepurathvalappil, senior manager of inbound and outbound operations at Regal Tours Worldwide.

Industry experts said that the family group visit visa is in high demand and many visitors are opting for this entry permit.

“A family group visit visa is more convenient and cost-effective for families as there is no visa fee for children under 18,” Subair said, adding that it is not restricted to any number of children.

“The visa can be applied for one of the parents and it is not necessary for both to visit the UAE.”
