  1. it is not true at all to say that, it is easy to apply for a tourist or business Dubai visa. However after reading this blog I have got a solution for all my problems and now I can easily apply for a Dubai visa and obtain it at home itself. This is the first time that I came to know about obtaining an e-visa, I just need to submit my documents online and then after the visa processing time I will receive my e-visa.
