UAE Student Residence Visa

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.
