UAE says to scrap tourist visa fees for under 18s

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship has announced that no tourist visa fees will be charged for children below the age of 18 who are accompanying their parents to the UAE.

Tourists can benefit from the latest tourist visa fee waiver rules between July 15 and September 15 each year, state news agency WAM reported on Wednesday.

The authority said that it will launch a campaign next week to define the exemptions granted to tourists and how to obtain them.

The authority issues two types of tourist visas, which are a 30-day visa valued at AED200 that can be extended twice, and a 90-day visa at AED550 that can also be extended twice while noting that visa extensions cost AED600.

The authority said that tourists can apply for family travel visas through approved travel and tourism offices in their home countries, as well as through the offices of UAE national carriers and benefit from the exemption.
