Traveling to Dubai, Bahrain or Qatar

Hello everyone,
hope that all of you enjoying this fresh weather :)

Does anyone knows the procedure when travel to Dubai, Bahrain or Qatar with Kuwait residence visa? Do I still need entering visa to those places? I'm thinking to go for a weekend.

Thank you in advance

Kind regards,
Milan

Milan,

For Dubai you need to request a visa online before you travel at https://www.ednrd.ae/ and that is the only way they issue it now.

For Bahrain you should get it easily on arrival, at least that was the case when I went a couple of years back and it was just a few dinars.

For Qatar you will also get it on arrival, I think the cost was around 10 KWD. Only certain professions are eligible though so check that first.

I'm also planning to go to Dubai soon and this is what i found out about visa to UAE:

looks like you as a Danish passport holder do not need any special preparation

one more thing: i am in Bahrain now and the visa was BD 25 and it's a re-entry for 3 or 6 months - i have to check

and I have a question, too:
what shall I squeeze in into a weekend (Thu-Sat) trip to Dubai? It's going to be my first visit there.

thx

Depends what your interests are. Dubai museum is well worth a visit. Take a boat trip along the creek, or you can visit any of the attractions, that will cost $$$. If you are planning to get up on Burj Khalifa book the ticket online, I think it is almost half the price compared to buying at the  site. Personally I find Dubai too artificial, Bahrain and Oman were way more interesting for me.

thx

anyone tried the desert safari in Dubai ?

is seething like that in Kuwait?

Ah, there is that too...haven't personally done it, I am more of a do-it-yourself guy. :) "Desert safari" in Kuwait is quite a bit different. :)

Thank you all, you've been very helpful :)

Kind regards,
Milan
