UAE Multiple Entry Visas
According to a government official of higher seniority level in Dubai multiple entry visas are being issued by the UAE to Chinese and Indian cruise travelers. Issam Kazim, CEO of Dubai Corporation for Tourism and Commerce Marketing added that in general, there has been a good rise in tourists from both these countries. This multiple entry visa had even got a proposal which was extended to Indian citizens arriving through airports. However, since it was a federal issue, it required dealing at that level.

In August 2014, the UAE brought forth regulatory changes to its visa system by permitting multiple entry tourism permits for those tourists and their companions who were coming here on medical grounds and for cruise passengers. This newly launched tourism permit is worth Dh200 and makes for a logistically and economically convenient travel. It has a lot of bearing on a number of key markets like Russia & CIS, India, Brazil, China and South Africa, all of which had to pay higher costs as per earlier regulations.

India's DTCM is of the view that with the introduction of the multiple entry visas, the tourists will prolong their stay in the emirates. As compared to 2012, in 2013, 888,835 Indian hotel guests came to Dubai, representing a 16 percent growth. Dubai's cruising season will be at its peak from October 2014 till June 2015 and will witness a total of 110 cruise ship calls, with over 381,000 passengers coming to the city. 

The count of passengers is slated to rise by 19% on the 2013-14 cruise season which means an extra of 60,000 travelers who take the sea route will enter, leave or transit at Mina Rashid, Dubai. This year, six vessels will be making 83 trips, with Dubai Cruise Terminal as home port.
