VISA INFORMATION FOR VISITING STUDENTS
It is mandatory for all visiting students to apply for a Student Residence Visa from AUD (except for UAE and GCC nationals).
Students should apply for the visa 2 months prior to the start of the semester by contacting the Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the visa process, students have to enroll in the AUD-sponsored health insurance plan. The Residence Visa is valid for one year.
Required Documents and Process:
Residency fees for visiting students coming for one semester:
Residency fees for visiting students coming for two consecutive semesters or extended another semester:
200AED (These fees are subject to change without notice by the UAE government authorities).
AUD-sponsored students who complete their semester(s) at AUD must contact the Visa Officer to process their visa cancellation two weeks before returning to their home country.
Students sponsored by AUD for a student resident visa, who fail to comply with the AUD visa regulations, or who exit the country without going through the proper channels and cancellation procedures will not be able entitled to re-apply for an AUD-sponsored residence visa. Accordingly, the students will forfeit their Passport Security Deposit.
