A Dubai 30 days express tourist visa is generally processed within three working days. The conditions of this visa are the same as the 30 days tourist visa.
All the Dubai visas online are single-entry visas. A Dubai 90 days tourist visa or visit visa entitles you to stay for a period of 89 days. As applicable for the other online visas, you must leave the country on or before the 90th day.
