+What is a visa and why is it important?

A visa is a travel document that allows a person to enter or leave the country from which it is issued. When visiting a foreign country, you always need a visa to ensure that you are entering the country legally. A visa application submitted in advance of arrival allows the country to consider the applicant's circumstances, such as financial protection, the reason for applying, and information about previous visits to the country.

No. It will create a double application and we cannot get approval if you have a pending application from another company.

+There is a date of expiration on my visa. Is that the last day that I can stay in the UAE?

No. This expiration date that you see in the visa is its validity from the day it was issued until the day it can be used. The validity of the visa is usually 60 Days. So, if the date of issue of the visa is, for example, from July 6, you have until September 3 to use the visa to enter the UAE. If you use it on September 4, you will lose the right to enter the country and must again apply for a new visa. The first day of your stay will count from the day your passport gets the entry stamp, regardless if it is 30 days or 90 days.

+What is the difference between a general tourist visa and a multiple entry visa?
