On-arrival have been stopped since 15 Sep 2015. You have to arrange one online; ahead of travelling.

The best thing is take the flight to UAE & apply at the airport. Believe me it's so easy there.
I too applied online & wasted my money as they didn't responded until 1 month. & when i reached sharjaha airport i got visa in 2 minutes.

I have heard that online visa is temporary on-hold. Will confirm tomorrow through travel agents.

That must be before Sept 2015.

Its been a week and status of online visa is still under process and its the same for many who applied earlier. What I heard is that those travelling through Emirates or Flydubai get visa on arrival.

On-arrival is still available till Dec 31st 2015...I've received an e-mail from Emirates itself...
