The UAE thrives on a global workforce. In fact, expats make up a staggering 90% of the population! To streamline immigration for this diverse community, the UAE launched the e-channel services portal.

The e-channel is a user-friendly online system designed by the Ministry of Interior (MOI) to simplify visa and residency applications.

Benefits of Using the e-Channel:

  • Save Time & Skip Lines: Apply for new visas, renewals, and changes entirely online, eliminating the need for in-person visits.
  • Enhanced Efficiency: The e-channel streamlines the process, leading to faster processing times and fewer errors.
  • Reduced Paperwork: Gone are the days of mountains of paperwork! Simply scan and upload the required documents.
  • Improved User Experience: Manage all your visa and license needs (applications, upgrades, renewals) in one centralized location.
  • Convenience: Check visa application statuses and print visa documentation anytime, anywhere.

Who Can Use the e-Channel?

  • UAE Nationals
  • GCC Nationals
  • Individual Residents
  • Individual GCC Residents
  • Visitors
  • Establishments (companies)

How to Register for the e-Channel

Registration is quick and easy. Simply visit the MOI website or your free zone’s e-services portal (if your business is registered in a free zone). The process involves selecting your user type (individual or establishment), entering your email address, verifying your email, and completing the registration form.

Registration Fees

There’s a one-time registration fee of AED 2,200 and a refundable security deposit of AED 5,000.
