In May of this year, the United Arab Emirates and the European Union signed a visa-free travel agreement that has now made 90-day visas-on-arrival available to EU nationals traveling to UAE. Ireland and the United Kingdom did not sign this agreement, therefore Irish and U.K. citizens are not eligible for 90-day visas-on-arrival. This allows for EU nationals to apply directly for a 90-day visa-on-arrival without having to initially obtain or renew a 30-day visa.
