Tourists and business visitors depending on their nationality or country of living either should apply and have the visa before hand on arrival or issued their visa on arrival. Except transit visas the other visas are valid for 30 days from the date of entry stamping.

Dubai customs allows tourists and visitors to bring gift articles worth 3000 Dhs and certain quantity of cigars, cigarettes, tobacco and alcoholic beverage. Items such as laptops, mobile phones and cameras also can be brought in for exclusive personal use.

Tourists and visitors are prohibited from bringing narcotic drugs such as opiates, cannabis, heroin, cocaine and any product derived using them. The country also banned gutkha, niswar, nuts, betel leaf qat leaf and poppy seeds (even in bakery products). Bringing any of the banned goods either purposely or unintentionally will result in long term jail punishment in addition to stiff fines.

Dubai do not encourage entry of items such as species of endangered animals, rhinoceros horn, ivory, weapon and ammunition, all items of Israeli origin, chemical and organic fertilizers, radar jammers, laser pens, gambling tools, fireworks, pornographic material, unauthorized communication devices and non-Islamic religious pamphlets.
