Options

Ukrainian nationals who arrived in the UAE before March 3, 2022, are allowed to stay for one year. Ukrainian nationals who entered the UAE after March 3, 2022, are eligible for 30-day visa free entry.

Update : The Emirati government will allow certain Ukrainian nationals to apply for a one-year residency visa.

Key Points:

  • As of April 12, Ukrainian nationals can apply for a one-year residency permit in the United Arab Emirates through Tasheel centers.
  • To be eligible for the one-year residency permit, Ukrainian nationals must have been present in the UAE before the war in Ukraine began and have a(n):
    • Copy of their passport with at least six months validity and a color headshot.
    • Medical report.
    • Copy of a health insurance policy.
    • Emirates ID application form to be completed at a Tasheel center.
  • Ukrainian nationals who have been in the UAE for more than 40 days are exempt from paying overstay fines.

Additional Information: Ukrainian nationals continue to have visa-free entry upon arrival in the UAE.

BAL Analysis: The UAE’s decision to offer one-year residence permits to eligible Ukrainian nationals is welcome news as authorities had previously announced they would not offer such protections. Ukrainian nationals who receive the one-year residency permit will be able to live and work in the UAE.
