There are several ways to check one’s UAE visa application status–be it your family’s visa, an employment visa or a tourist visa. 

To track one’s visa in UAE, you need the application and reference number. Date of birth or passport number may also be required along the process. 

When applying your visa to any visa service provider, make sure you ask for the application number so you can track the visa through online channels.

If you have applied in Dubai or through Amer centres in Dubai, you may track your visa status through the website of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai. 

Employment visa applied in Dubai can also be tracked by contacting Amer Centres on 800 5111 or email them at or on the Amer website.
