The United Arab Emirates has extended their visa system to allow people on tourist or visit visas to apply for a 30-day extension twice without having to leave the country.

Previously, people with tourist or visit visas were obligated to leave the country after the expiration of their three-month visit vise or one-month tourist visa and apply for new visas if they wished to return to the UAE.

People can apply for the extension through travel agents at a fee of 600AED ($163.35).

Tourist or visit visas, which can be extended to 60 days, will help jobseekers immensely since they will not be forced to leave the UAE and reapply for an entry visa once theirs expires.
