UAE Student Residence Visa


The Office of Administration arranges student visas under the sponsorship of the University. Visas must be renewed every year.

The visa application requires the following:

  • Eight (8) passport photos.
  • Passport copy.
  • Copy of the secondary school certificate.
  • Payment of visa fee and security deposit for a visa. Click here for details.

All students applying for a residence visa must undergo medical tests conducted by the preventive health department of the RAK government and fingerprinting by the police department. The medical tests include a blood test and an X-ray. Failure to pass either one of the medical tests leads to deportation to the country of origin.

Once the visa is issued, the student is required to pay the full semester fee and other mandatory University fees. Upon receiving the payments, the student visa can be collected at the airport upon arrival.

Students on an AURAK visa who discontinue their studies or transfer to another university must submit their passports for visa cancellation before departure.
