The UAE has discontinued the issuance of 3-month visit visas, the Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security (ICP) confirmed.

On its website, the option to apply for the visa is no longer available. Under Public Services, only Golden Visa, jobseeker visa and 5-year tourist visa are available.

Dubai-based travel agency Geoffrey Travel confirmed that the issuance of the 3-month or 90-day visit visa has been discontinued.

“It appeared to have been discontinued since it is no longer available in the general system. For now, we can assist residents in applying for a 30-day visit visa or 60-day visit visa for their family,” Geoffrey Travel told
