Dubai: The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship in the UAE has launched a scheme to check the UAE visa status using a passport. Under this, a UAE resident can enter passport information to verify if visa is still valid and can check whether the issued visa is authentic or not. Residents can also cross-check the validity of visa through this official government website.
Here’s a step by step guide to track the visa validity using your passport:

Step 6: Select the captcha check box and click on search. The page will now display your visa details along with date of expiry.
