Once the UAE authorities allow visitors to arrive in the UAE, you may travel here and avail tourist visa on arrival.

Question: I am a Canadian citizen and recently purchased a property in Dubai. But unfortunately, now I am stuck in Canada with no residence of my own as I sold my house here in order to buy one in Dubai. Can I travel to Dubai with my Canadian passport and avail 30 days of tourist visa on arrival facility?

Answer: It should be noted that as a Canadian citizen, you may travel and obtain a tourist visa on arrival if your Canadian passport is valid for more than six months.

Currently, visa on arrival facility at any UAE airport is not available owing to the precautionary measures taken by the UAE government due to Covid-19. Once the UAE authorities allow visitors to arrive in the UAE, you may travel here and avail tourist visa on arrival for Canadian citizens.
