Visa information from Middle East

You can either get the visa before you go, along the way, or increasingly frequently, at the airport or border. The advantage of predeparture collection is that it doesn't waste travelling time and 'difficult' embassies are sometimes less difficult when you are in your own country.


To enter the GCC Countries, a passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond the end date of the stay is required by all nationals. An applicant should collect an application form the concerned consulate which has to be filled and submitted back with appropriate details, required documents and applicable service charges.
