Persons living in the Arab Gulf Co-operation Council do not need visas to access Dubai or any other emirate. They include citizens of Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia. Those living in any of these countries but not citizens are allowed entry if they are domestic helpers or escorts of the nationals of GCC. They are given renewable visas lasting a period of 60 days. They should provide their original passports and residency visas at the point of entry.
Also legible for a visa in the UAE are residents of GCC who are not necessarily citizens or helpers but hold high profile jobs like engineers, doctors, company managers and public sector employees. Their families are also legible for a non-renewable 30-day visa. They should have proof of employment, valid residency visa of the country they are from and their original passport at the entry point such as the airport or border crossing.
