Flying to Kish Island from Dubai for visa change.

These days anyone who come to Dubai on tourist visa should exit from Dubai and enter again to get the work visa, so the easiest way is to fly to the nearest country, there are many possible countries to fly such as Oman, Qatar or any nearest countries. To fly to any country you must get a visa unless you cannot travel there. But Kish you do not need a visa since it’s a freezone Island, you do not need a visa to fly to Kish Island. You only need up and down ticket and your passport.

To know more about Kish : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kish_Island

Many people (most of all) do not have any idea about Kish and what happens there when you go, so I intend to write this to provide some information’s based on my experience in Kish Islands.

Needed things prior to fly Kish:

  • Passport
  • Air Ticket to Kish (around 700AED)
  • Deposit at the airport  (around 1500AED)
  • Pocket Money
  • Hotel Deposit (500 for Arabian or Africans & 300 for others)
  • Cloths & other things for minimum 3 days

Expenses with pricing

  • Room charge : 40AED (free for first day) – Price may change depend on the Hotel or may have to keep a deposit.

When we book the ticket the ticketing office do not give us any information about what will happen in Kish, unless we ask them many times, some they charge extra amount for the hotel and other facilities, for me they charged 750AED saying it is for the hotel, but the truth is you only have to pay for the ticket do not pay for anything else.

According to my knowledge, the Kish airline has few affiliated hotels (lodge), you will have to stay there they are especially for the visitors who travel Kish for visa changing. If they say Hotel it means it’s a Camp or lodge, each room has around 5 – 6 beds, everything is shared, you are responsible for your things and you will find many nationalities in groups, so you can join them when you go there, as a Sri Lankan I was with a nice group of Sri Lankan, they treated me like their own blood. And every one helps each other.

Do’s and Don’ts when you are in Kish

From Dubai to Kish Island it will take around 40min, the flight is not comfortable but they provide a good service, they give you a box in it you will find a piece of cake, a drink packet (mango) and salted peanuts. When you arrive you will find a big signage which says “WELCOME TO BEAUTIFUL KISH ISLAND” and mostly all of them laughs, still I laugh when I think if my days in Kish because we are not in the beautiful part of the island we wore in an isolated place. When you arrive to Kish you should follow some important instructions and there are few things you must know before you fly there.

Do’s

  • Take some extra money; you should take minimum 800AED, since you must pay for the hotel 500 deposits if you are Arabian or African, 300 for other nationalities.
  • If you are a female you should cover your body with “Abaya” it is a must, so take some decent cloths, if you do not have they will provide you at the airport.
  • Life there is not easy it’s expensive and you cannot assure that you will get the visa as your employer promised so be prepared.
  • Send the hotel Fax & email to your employer so when they got your visa they will send to the hotel and then they will print it to you.
  • When you receive your visa take it and go to the Kish Airline office and schedule your flight then go to the hotel and inform them so they will check out you and provide your passport and deposit money.

The life there in Kish is not really fun as we thought, it’s a hard life there, we are not tourist we go there to get our work visa, so it is normal to experience such stay there, but please keep in mind it may take many days to get your visa, some stay here for many weeks, I met one person he was there for 40 days, so be prepared for the consequences.

When you arrive to Dubai there is a counter to collect your Visas, you should show your visa copy and collect the original visa, then check out from the immigration.

  7. edge

    may i know what the 1500 aed deposit for at the airport?

    • Hi Edge, the 1500AED deposit is to ensure that you are going to Kish island for the visa change and you will return back, It is not a must for some nationalities i believe.

  8. You are so interesting! I don’t suppose I’ve read through a single thing like this before.
    So wonderful to find somebody with unique thoughts on this subject matter.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is something that

  10. umair

    what if we dont want to stay more than an hour in kish island. still we need 1500 AED?

    • I am not sure with that, but note: that you have to pay 1500AED at UAE airport before you go to kish, it is not compulsory for some nationalities as per my knowledge.

      • rosalie

        what is the name of the airline

        • Hi Rosalie,

          Kish air line is the only flight service there to kish and You can book the ticket from any Travel agencies here, you need to contact a travel agent since Kish Airline does not have an online booking system (as per my knowledge).

  11. Anitha

    hi,
    need your help as if i get visa today evening until wat tme i can book the tickets.. is there any time limit as since tomorrow is friday isit possible to book and come back to dubai from kish

    • Hi Anitha,

      If you get the visa when you are in kish, if you get it in the morning then there is a high chance you can book the ticket for the evening flight, if you get it in the evening then you will have to book the ticket the next day.

      good luck.

  14. Adil

    Hi bro, nice article. My employer says i have to travel Kish on this upcoming Monday but i was wondering why can’t they issue me visa from here? SO i could just take the visa with me and just travel back right away without waiting for them to send the visa? Also you mentioned that the Etisalat sim doesn’t work there? So i wont be able to contact them unless i get the local sim? and that air ticket of 700 AED is a return ticket? means for both going and coming back? is the hotel deposit must? Awaiting your answer

    • Hi Adil,

      Sorry for the late reply, In most cases they can not issue the visa unless you exit from the country (as per my knowledge), Kish is the only place near you can travel with out an arrival visa, you can contact your employer from the hotel local telephone, email. and they can call you but in most cases you can not call them.

      • Abdullah

        Hi,

        You can get your visa while staying here but you will have to pay an extra 660+550 = 1,210
        You employer will not be willing to pay this.

  15. Adil

    Hi rimaz I am also going to kish on Monday so that 700 is for the return ticket right ? Also do we have to pay that 300 hotel deposit and it’s refundable right ?

    • Hi Adil,

      Yes the Air ticket is around 700AED (But please check it in a travels), the hotel deposit differs depend on the hotel you stay, for me I had to deposit only 40AED, and yes if you deposit it is refundable.

      Good luck, and safe flight.

  16. Adil

    Alright thank you man hope for the best :)

  17. jijo

    Hai Rimaz,i am also going to kish on this week,what if i want to stay more than two weeks in kish island. still we need 1500 AED?to deposit in dubai airport?am an indian nationalities

    • Hi Ji,

      If you think that you have to stay there for morethan 2 weeks, then you must consider getting a visa in Kish, it is allowed to stay only 14 days in kish with out a kish visa, if you overstay you may have to get a kish visa, and also you have to deposit in Dubai airport.

      Good luck.

      • jijo

        Hai Rimaz,thanks for your valuable reply,i ask to this things (regarding the Deposit)one of the agency told me no need to deposit.especially for the indian nationality.and why we need to deposit in airport ?what the reason for that ?and how much for the KISH visa?do you have any idea?

        • Hi Jiji,

          You are welcome, as per my knowledge you have to keep a deposit, the reasons are.

          1. You dont get a Kish visa to arrive to kish Island, to go to any country you need a visa, at-least on-arival.
          2. It is just a assurance that you return back.

          but if the travel agent toled you that you dont need may be they are right. the Kish visa was max 700AED, but most of the travel charge 650AED.

          Please share the post among your friends (facebook, twitter, Google+)
          Good luck.

          • jijo

            Thank you Mr.Rimaz

  18. jijo

    Hai Rimaz,i just want ask you something,if i stay there in kish more than two weeks do you have any idea for the Expence,i mean how much money i should take?

    • Hi Jiji,

      Just read the post again to get a good idea of expenses, but I can list the expenses ass bellow,

      Room Rent = 40AED (min)
      Food (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner ) : 6AED + 10AED + 9AED = 25AED
      Drinks = 1AED

      Total per Day = 66AED
      Total Basic Expenses per week = 462AED

      *This is may change according to your budget, and if you are going with few others better try to cook, or find some friends in the flight or there in the hotel and you can share the expenses.

      Please share your experiences when you come back.

  19. HABEEB

    HI Rimaz,
    Is there any money exchange service available there? can we arrange money via exchange from uae on unexpected delay of our visa issue.
    Thanks
    best regards,
    habib

    • Hi Habeeb,

      Yes there is money exchange, you can receive money from “Al Ansari Exchange”, as per my knowledge you can transfer money only from “Al Ansari Exchange”.

      Good luck, safe flight.

    Hai Mr.rimaz,sorry to disturb you again,i told u that am going to kish,i got the ticket from on of the agency in(dubai),after that i asking about my accommodation,but they told me they will not arrange that.i need to stay at least two weeks. how can i find the Lodge/Hotel?Because its a new place and where i can find ?is there is any hotel agents are there?and one more thing i just want ask u ,is there is any exchange over there like (Al-ansari/Western union).what are the documents need for withdrawing money?and where i can get my kish visa:?

    • Hi JiJI,

      Please read my conversation with others in the commenting area, you will find the answers to your questions, when you arrive the island you will get a transport (just try to sit in front or hurry to the check out after you land) and they will take you to their hotels, do not worry much, they have Taxi to pick you to hotel if you want, but better go with the crowd, I mean there will be a bus to take you to their hotels, and you just have to follow what I mentioned in the post.

      there are Exchange aswell.

      Good luck.

      Please share this post in (facebook, Twitter & Google+)

  25. sofiya

    Dear Rimaz,

    Good day,

    i need some information on visa exchange in Oman. and why some visa exchanger prefer kish island to Oman.

    • Hi Sofiya,

      As I mentioned in my post, you do not need a visa to fly to kish island, but as per my knowledge if you are flying to Oman then you need a visa to Oman, thats why they prefer kish.

      Good luck

  26. Rheylyn

    Hi Mr, Rimaz,

    Hello & Greetings

    Your enthusiacsm and dedication to help others is highly appreciated, although I can see the same question appear over and over, which you had described in the beginning of the article.
    Will it be more articulate if you can rearrange the format and address via website, where general information could be filed under separate pages, such as:

    WHY KISH ?
    EXPENSES
    TRAVEL
    HOTEL
    FOOD
    VISA
    DO’S AND DONT’S

    People will take advantage to sign in and go fro the web page and find the answers once and for all, instead you are answering each and every individual the same information.
    If you need any assistance, I will contribute my time.
    Keep up the good work
    God Bless

    • Hi Naufal,

      Thank you for the appreciation, I am unsure about the charges from Qatar to Dubai, Please you have to check from a travel agent in Qatar.

  42. kashishholidays

    hey,

    i am going to kish island , and have booked a ticket to dubai from where i will buy kish island ticket.i need to ask:
    -do i need a dubai visa??since i wont enter dubai just buy ticket from airport itself.
    -if i do have a visa..then can i go and come back to dubai from kish island.( dxb-kish- dxb)

    also suggest the best hotel to stay in kish island.

    regards,

    • Hi,

      You can book ticket to Kish with return ticket from the travel agents here in Dubai, there are many travel agents who provide ticket to kish.
      You do not need a visa to fly to kish if you are flying from Dubai.

      Wish you good luck

      • Arslan

        when we have not got Dubai employment visa yet how can a travel agent issue RETURN Ticket. I think we will have to buy returning ticket from Kish?

        • Hi Arslan,

          You will buy the ticket with the return ticket, and when you fly to Kish you have to wait for your visa, then you have to re book the return ticket.

  43. supad

    Hi Rimaz,

    Thank you for this valuable insight, it is very helpful.

    Just a few questions.

    Does everyone on this visa quest have to pay 1500AED to exit Dubai airport as my friend has a Mauritian Passport and if you pay do you get it back?
    Could you recommend any hotels?
    Did you experience much crime there?
    My friend is very worried about going there.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Supad,

      I appreciate you for that,

      It is a security deposit that most of the nationalities have to keep at the Dubai airport, but you can check at the airport more details,
      Yes you can collect it when you are return.
      I dis not hear any proven crimes, but you better check online for more details. Better do not stay in camps like hotels.

      Good luck

    Hello Rimaz,

    Your details is informative. After my cancellation of current visa my new employer will issue me new visa before going to Kish. So, how many days I had to stay at kish if I had already employment visa of Dubai with me ?

    • Hi Anil,

      Thank you for the appreciation, Kish is an Exit alternative so If you have a Visa (Pink Copy) already even you can exit to Oman or Kish, If you exit to Oman you can return on the next Bus (you might have to schedule it with the travel agent). if you exit to Kish then you have to wait for the next booking for the flight, probably it will take only 1 day.

      Good luck

    Hi Rauf

    I am searching for information on how to travel from Dubai to Kish. I am a UK national and I don’t need visa to travel to Dubai. I believe I wont need any visa for Kish either. Now could you please clarify few things for me. I would really appreciate your help.

    1. How do I book a ticket from Dubai for Kish bound airlines
    2. Can I do it here online or do I have to do it from a travel agent in Dubai?
    3. If I have to purchase ticket from Dubai does it mean i have to do it outside airport? (which means staying in Dubai for longer than I want)
    4. Cost of return ticket (including agency charge)
    5. I am planning to stay there with my wife for 3 days. So roughly how much AED i need to take with me. Total please. And can I use Visa Debit card? Or do I need to take just cash?

    I know few of my questions are repetitive but its purely because I desperately looked into internet for few valuable tips but none are more helpful than your site. Kish Airline site is in Farsi and that doesn’t translate. All the travel buffs say so many nitty-gritty things on their blogs but fail to leave mostFAQs.

    I will eagerly wait to hear from you mate. Cheers

    • Hi Hassan,
      Thank you for contacting me, I have explained for most of your questions on my blog post itself but anyway I will clarify you here. You do not need to get a visa to kish it is on arival visa so you will be stamped when you reach Kish.

      1. There are many travel agents, you can simply visit to any of those and book your ticket.
      2. I have tried online booking but it did not work, so better you go to an agent and book the ticket. Since Kish has only one airline service (Kish Airline).
      3. There are Travel agents in the airport too (as per my knowledge), but the Flight times may not be frequent.
      4. As I mentioned the total cost would be around 600AED – 800AED
      5. Better take cash since AED is a common currency there you do not need to convert the money to Iranian currency.

      * Also there is another option to Exit, you can travel to Oman aswel, since you are a UK national you might not need to make a deposit.

      The cost might vary depend on the hotel you stay, but please make sure you book a hotel from Dubai so you can guess your expenses there.
      I hope I have explained you correctly, if any question please do not hesitate to ask. And please share this post if you find informative.
      Regards.

    Hi Rimaz,
    Please thank you for such great info. to us and i too have these questions.
    1. Am willing to travel to Kish on monday 8th september, but is it a must that i can make the flight booking that very day and then travel to kish?
    2. Is 700 AED for the up and down flight or each is 700 and then a total of 1400 AED?

    • Hi Samuel,

      Thank you for your appreciation, please share this post among others too as it would benefit many others. also please share your experience after you come back it might help me to update this post.

      Now the answers for you questions :

      1. As per my knowledge you can book the ticket any day better book it the day before.
      2. yes the total up and down ticket cost is around 700AED you can book the up and down tick for only 700AED (charges may change) then when you got your pink copy of ur visa (FAX or Email) then you can book the return flight.

      wish you good luck

    Dear Rimaz,

    First of all, Thank you and best wishes on such a informative blog. Could you explain my concerns below

    1- which stamped is consider to exit, In dubai airport or at Kish airport (Actually my company provided me ticket for tomorrow and asked me to inform us on exit so that we can apply for you employment visa, moreover they said that within one hour, we will be able to get you visa and then send to you. And you will catch return flight on the same day).
    2- what’re the flights timings from kish to dubai and how many flights in a day from kish to dubai
    3- As mentioned above, company provide me ticket so I have to pay any amount as deposit on airport. if yes then how much?
    4-On ticket, it is mentioned that kish airline will provide one day stay, In this case how much amount, i have to pay on hotel on one day stay if necessary
    5- where i will stay between flights (retrun) if i will be able to return fly on the same.
    6- How can i contact my company from kish, i have etisalat sim

    Thanks in advance!

    • Hi Raja,

      I have already answered the same questions on the comments few more times, also please read the full article I have mention the answers already.

      Safe Flight.

    Hai Rimaz,thanks for your valuable reply,i ask to this things (regarding the Deposit)one of the agency told me no need to deposit.especially for the indian nationality.and why we need to deposit in airport ?what the reason for that ?and how much for the KISH visa?do you have any idea?

    • Hi Mohamed,

      The deposit is to assure that you are coming back or for some other security reasons, as per my knowledge most of the nationalities have to pay a deposit. if the agency says maybe its okay not to pay (I am not sure), kish visa is on arrival so it includes with the ticket itself, you do not need to pay extra.

      Good luck, please share this post if its useful for you.

    Thanks Rimaz for your blog. Was really helpful.. Appreciate your minute details

    Thanks a lot Rimaz,, I was actually looking for all these information. You helped me a lot. I have just received an offer letter from new company. So I am planning to resign the current one. And if it is compulsory for us to make an exit for new visa, would you suggest me to resign and go to kish to wait for new visa? I know you have answered most of the questions already. However just to make myself comfortable I would be grateful if i get your suggestion. Coz this is the first time for me.

    Thanks again.

    • Hi Sameer,

      Thank you for the appreciation, I wish you all the very best on your new employment, As you may know you will get one month to stay here after you cancel your visa from your previous employer (that is normal) and you can ask your new employer to process the visa, then when they say your visa is ready then you can exit to kish island, and then they will email or fax you the visa copy, so you can return back to UAE.

      It is better you wait here for the processing of your visa than waiting in Kish since you have extra one month to stay here in UAE even after your visa is canceled.

      I am not an expert in theses issues but I just gave you some suggestions.

      Good luck and wish you all the best.

      Please share this post on your facebook, so many would benefit.

      • Sameer

        Hi Rimaz,

        Thanks again for prompt response and valuable time. Yes, that is the great idea. Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. And for sure these information will be shared.

    Dear Rimaz,

    You are such a excellent person providing very important information. I am from Nepal and I have got nice job offer in Iraq as Fire & Safety officer. My government has imposed the ban on it’s citizens travelling to iraq. But my contract is 28 days on and 28 days off means I have to leave iraq once 28 days of my work is complete. for the first time I used uae visa but I can’t use for next time because once I exit from UAE i only can apply for the uae visa after 30 days of exit date but in my case I have to get out of iraq within 28 days.

    So, I was thinking to travel to Kish Island and stay there for next 28 days but not sure if I can travel to Kish island from Iraq? There is no direct flight from Iraq so, I was thinking that I can travel from Iraq to dubai airport one flight and transit. Book the Kish flight and get in to the island. However, is it possible to fly to kish island not having uae visa? I have got iraq working visa.

    Please reply me.

    Thank you.
