The overall government fees for the Dubai Work Remote Visa 1 year visa are AED 2,300 (USD 620). This includes the fees for the processing of the visa and the costs from Dubai Immigration. This is for a 1 year visa.
Renewal costs for the Dubai Work Remote Visa for year 2 are the same as above - AED 2,300 (USD 620) each year. The renewal of the visa will require a new application at the end of year 1, with the same documentation requirement and process.
Note that payment of the relevant fees does not guarantee approval of the application. The fees and timelines may change based on country of citizenship, application service required and whether you are applying from the UAE or from overseas.
The above fees do not include Health Insurance costs – the Work Remote Visa holder will need to arrange health insurance for themselves as part of the Visa set up process. Health insurance costs will depend on a number of factors - age and health conditions. PPG can introduce you to a number of health insurance providers to assist and will coordinate as part of the visa process.
The applicant can use Travel Insurance, but this will need to be converted to locally registered UAE Health insurance once the visa application has been done.
The above does not include any additional service fees that the applicant may request, for example the applicant may wish to request a PRO company such as PRO Partner Group (PPG) to assist with the collection, attestation and organisation of documents, application and visa process on their behalf – additional service fees will apply in this case.
The above fees do not include any foreign document attestation costs that may be required if the application needs to get their qualification documents, company document or proof of employment etc notarised legalised and attestation in their country of origin. PPG can assist fully with document attestation for the visa applicant as needed - we have network of third party attestation agents in foreign countries to facilitate this for clients.
If the visa applicant also wishes to sponsor their spouse, and children in the UAE then this is possible and can be undertaken after the remote visa is obtained. Note that additional fees will apply for spouse and dependant visas, and the main visa holder will need to rent accommodation in Dubai and produce a Dubai Municipality Ejari lease contract as part of the dependant visa applications.
