Visa Question...

by Donna_in_India

We were planning to spend a few days in Dubai and a few days in Abu Dhabi. My husband needs a visa but according to the hotel in Dubai, "As per Immigration rule, the guest will have to stay in our hotel for the entire duration of stay in the UAE." Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there a way around it? Looking for someone with personal experience please (I've already contacted the Consulate). Thanks.

Re: Visa Question...

by 37SingleMaleInDubai1

He may receive a visa from a trading company in Dubai without the need of staying in any particular hotel. If you don't know any company then the sponsoring hotel for visa may agree for your husband to book out from the hotel but leave his passport with the hotel during your visit to Abu Dhabi. In that case they would have to issue an official letter stating the same in case you need to book a hotel in Abu Dhabi!! However you have to check with the hotel to know if they allow such kind of arrangement.
Good luck.

Re: Visa Question...

I obtained visa from Emirates airlines.

Anyway most of UAE companies can make a visa. My friend obtained visa from the travel agency, travel companies have the same rates as the hotels themselfs, so you can book 2 hotels there and they will make you visa for all days.

Travel Tips for Dubai

2 For 1 Deals

by chizz

The Entertainer is a good book to have for 2 for 1 deals here in Dubai. It's packed with coupons for deals in restaurants, spas, leisure activities (such as desert safaris, Big Bus Tour, Wild Wadi, Ski Dubai, etc.) It is priced at 250AED for the main Entertainer book, 150AED for the Fine Dining book, and 195AED for The Body book. You usually make back the cost of the book after using 2 or 3 coupons! Also, if you are holidaying in Dubai, they do small booklets of the coupons for 49 dirhams (price for 2007). I used the Entertainment and Leisure booklet for seeing the main sights when my mum came to visit and saved loads (especially as the Big Bus is 175 dirhams pp on it's own!). Books and booklets are available in Spinneys supermarkets, African & Eastern outlets, Magrudy's bookstore, etc. They also do specific discount books on their own such as for Fine Dining, etc.

Behaviour towards Arabic women

by JessH

Here are a few pointers on the mentality & religious aspects of dealing with Arabic women (and men):

> Women can shake an Arabic woman's hand, but men should not attempt this. The lady may offer to shake hands, do so, but leave the decision up to her as many Muslim ladies do not want to be touched by other men in even the most harmless manner. Vice-versa, some Arabic men will refuse shaking hands with a Western woman. Do not feel offended by this.

> Do not take pictures of Arabic ladies. They can get quite upset about this (this one applies especially to you ladies: if you are in the washrooms, at a ladies-beach or beauty salon where they uncover themselves - they don't want pictures of themselves shown to other men)

> Beware of the mighty Abaya!
The Abaya is the black dress the ladies wear. The head scarf is called Shehla. Some ladies also wear a face-mask, called a Burka. Many ladies (especially the older generation) think the abaya gives them special rights & will quite happily step onto the road, trusting that traffic will stop for her! Also, some local ladies will try to push ahead in a queue.

> Men, please note that institutions such as banks, exchange houses, etc. often have Ladies Sections, where women can sit seperately & have their own queue. Do not sit or stand there, or you will be asked to move by a security guard. If there is no ladies queue, you will notice that the counter clerks will usually call the woman forward to be served first, and men should let her pass. (one of the few reasons I like this country; going to the bank only takes me 5 min!)

> When meeting an Arabic man, men should not ask: "how is your wife?". This may be perceived as intrusive. Rather ask "how is your family?". Women may ask about the wife with no problems.

In general, you will notice that Muslim society is cleary gender-seperated.

Boats plying the Dubai Creek

by cochinjew

Plying at the demand of the customers, these descendants of ancient arab crafts now with modern motors, ply between one side of the creek to the other. Just half a dirham ( about 15 cents usd). very pleasant way to travel. Mostly men travelling, since the country is mostly men ( I would dare say over 70% of the population is male ). Gliding past modern buildings, an odd mosque or two . I sat with many other fortune seekers to this arab land, as the sun set over the creek, with this boat gently going from one coast to the other. My best experience in the 12 hour lay over in Dubai
