Student Visa

Click here to fill out the necessary Student Visa Application Form and learn about the requirements.

After AURAK receives your application, we will apply for your online student residence visa through the Department of Naturalization & Residency in Ras Al Khaimah. After the visa is issued to us, we will send a copy of the visa to the email address you provided on the request form. Please note that this is just a temporary visa, valid for only two months from the date of issue. It will be necessary afterwards to obtain a student visa to cover your time as a student here.

AURAK will process the student UAE entry visa once full tuition and visa fee payment has been received. Once the entry visa is issued, a scanned copy will be sent to you. You must print out this copy as you will need to present it upon departure from your home airport. Upon arrival at one of UAE’s International airports, you will proceed to the Visa Collection Counter to collect your original entry visa. You then proceed to passport control/immigration. Please keep your original entry visa in a safe place, as it is required to process the required student visa. Once arriving on campus, you will then submit your entry visa and passport to the Administration Office. You will be required to take a medical test (HIV, Hepatitis and TB). Failure to pass these medical tests will result in immediate deportation from the country. You will also be finger printed at the police department. A one-year student visa will be issued after completion of these procedures.


AURAK provides high quality student residences in coordination with its partner – EDRAK. The residence halls are located on the AURAK campus. For more information about room reservation and prices, please visit:  EDRAK Residential Halls
