In hopes of resurrecting the crushed tourism industry in the Emirates, the UAE Cabinet approved a proposal for multiple tourist entry visas for all nationalities. With new developments and trying to adapt to the new normal, this scheme has introduced virtual visas that provide individuals the freedom to work from home irrespective of their office locations.

The five-year visa allows the holder to stay in the country for 90 days, which they can further extend by another 90 days. You can travel to and from the UAE as many times as you wish on this visa.
