Student Visa UAE

For students who are willing to study in the UAE, it is necessary to obtain a study visa for the same. Career counselling and guidance services can assist students in securing the same.

The UAE provided student Visas for applicants who are above 18 years of age. Students who show academic excellency can get a long-term visa of about 5 years. To be eligible for this kind of visa, students opting for undergraduate studies must obtain at least 95 percent from a private or public secondary school. For students opting for their graduate study, a minimum GPA of at least 3.75 is necessary from universities within and outside UAE. This extension of the visa will also be applicable to family members of applicants.

The Ministry of Interior manages the Visa process in the UAE. It is necessary for a student applying for a Visa in the UAE to have already obtained a letter of acceptance from a recognized university in the country. For applicants who are not freshman, a certificate of continuance of study is necessary. Students must pass a medical fitness test, and must have a visa sponsor. This can be the university or may be a parent or relative. In addition to this, students must pass security checks for the same. Further, an approval of the Visa is necessary from the General Director of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA). Students can obtain a Visa for a year at a time after which one can apply for the extension of the Visa. Here, a proof of continuation of studies from the university is necessary. The process of application for a visa is slightly different in the UAE where the process of obtaining the visa is conducted by the residents who are securing a visa for their children or the universities sponsoring their students. Each university has specific terms and conditions for the visa process and applicants must take note of this while requesting a visa. It is especially necessary for the male children of resident expatriate UAE parents to obtain a study visa following enrollment in a university as the child will not be allowed to reside in UAE otherwise. For international students, it is necessary that they provide details of their bank account to the respective authorities. This portal provides further information to students.
