If you have made your travel arrangements through a travel agency, they may help you get the Transit Visa. However, all Transit Visas are routed through the airlines.
Some Indian nationals may be exempted from a Transit Visa. If you are an Indian national holding a US Green Card, you do not need a UAE Transit Visa. Similarly, if you hold a Residency Visa for the UK or the EU, you are exempted from a Transit Visa. Holders of such visas may live in the UAE for up to 14 days without a visa.
If you are an Indian national holding a Residence Visa from the US, UK or EU, you need to get a UAE Entry Permit at any port of entry in the UAE. However, your Residence Visa should be valid for more than 6 months when you do so.
You may go to the Marhaba Service Counter to get your Entry Permit for Dh 100. You need to pay an additional Dh 20 as service charge. Once you get your Entry Permit, you can proceed to passport control. You may stay in the UAE for up to 14 days. You may also extend your stay in the UAE for up to 28 days by paying a renewal fee of Dh 250 along with a service charge of Dh 20.
