Today almost all barriers to travel have been erased, many countries have become more open with regard to vacationers. But still the Arab Emirates are positioned as a state with strict morals, so many travelers are wondering whether everyone can go there to rest, whether you need a visa to the Emirates.
It should be noted that all residents need a visaCIS countries. To issue it is not so difficult. The embassy issues visas only to Russian citizens with official or diplomatic passports, so ordinary citizens need to contact the intermediary. They may be an airline, travel agency or hotel. If the flight is via Dubai, then you can apply for a visa in the capital visa center.
The visa for the Emirates for Russians is issued on the basis of the following documents:

All visas to the United Arab Emirates are divided into three types: transit, tourist and guest. The cheapest and the shortest are transit visas, they are issued only for 96 hours. Such visas will suit travelers who are on their way to another country, but transit through the United Arab Emirates. If the next plane more than a day, then to sit at the airport does not make sense. With the help of a transit visa, you can freely navigate around the city, see the sights, stay at the hotel.
Usually a visa to the Emirates is issued about 3 - 4days, but it is still worthwhile to worry about this in advance in order to avoid unforeseen situations. It should be noted that in the UAE, Fridays and Saturdays, as well as all state holidays, are days off. This fact can also affect the duration of visa processing.
