travelling to dubai via road from Saudi...can I get on arrival visa

Hi,

I want to go dubai via road from al khobat to dubai. I am an engineer by profession. Can I get on arrival visa? I heard that now e-visa is also possible. Please suggest me if on arrival visa at border is still available.

Thanks.

I think i read on the emirates website they have temporarliy suspended all VOA for GCC residents. You need a pre arrival visa.

Hi,

But I read some where that, e-visa is compulsory from october 2015 only. at this time entry on both kind of visa is possible. But confused. Anybody went there recently via road? n got on-arrival visa?

Thanks

it is written here
qsaudi.com/dubai-visit-visa-visa-on-arrival-facility-stopped/

Visa-on-arrival facility was revoked in mid May. Though they'll be lenient till August end.
Reference here

Though it will remain open for executive visitors who enters from ANY point of entry.

As OP said, feedback expected from someone who had a recent experience.

Dear all, finally I took risk, n started my journey yesterday in hope to get on arrival visa...fortunately I got on arrival visa at battha border...no pb....so it seems that till September one can get on arrival visa...but if you have time, then take e visa...it will save time at border...enjoy!

AOA,

Dear All

Visa fee is same for by air or by road. to Enter UAE 200 Riyals and to exit UAE again 35 riyals. And they accept credit card only for payment. If you don't have credit card then one need to by card from the shop.

Sir Thanks for your reply
I have done the same steps mentioned above selected arrival AL gouifat
After one day of submission they are asking for Please submit sponsor visa issued by state Emirates.
What to do for sponsor visa

Then I don't have an idea, as I went directly without tacking e-visa. I got on-arrival visa at the border. Please share your experience of arranging e-visa. probably you are one of first to do so. it will be helpful to others.

How much average time will it take in batha border to get visa on arrival and pass the border?

Which is the best road to Dubai
via Kharaj or via Khurays
I heard that via Kharaj it is shorter but single carriage way which requires many overtaking of the trucks

If you take Kharaj road it will take you 4h 46 min (533 km) to reach UAE Border post (Ghuwaifat). If you want to take Khurays road it may take you 5h 21 min (604 km). If you want a hassle free travel, you may select Khurays road. Please also use a GPS when you are travelling as you may skip UAE road, as you have to take an exit from the Dammam-Riyadh Highway and may end up travelling to Dammam.

I have never travelled to UAE from Riyadh. I always started my journey from Dammam, where there is only road i.e through Al-Ahsa.

I hope I have helped you. When are you leaving for UAE?  Have you got the e-visa? I am travelling at midnight on 15/7/2015.

Thanks for your reply
Inshallah we will be leaving 15 July early morning my no is 0500170415

Dear all,
Please get previsa before going to UAE. now there is no visa on arrival. On 16 September I boarded saptco bus but I was let down since I had no visa. Always get a pre visa. Hope this was helpful

If someone is going by road then please share your experience for others benefit.
