Student Visas

Student Visas: International students can be sponsored by RIT Dubai for a student visa.

Students already in the UAE who wish to transfer to RIT Dubai’s visa without exiting the country will pay a one-time additional fee of AED 1800 for visa status change.

Please allow up to 15 working days to process the visa. Students must submit the paperwork well in advance or they will be responsible to pay overstay fines.

Note: The student visa is valid for one year and needs to be renewed every year at the cost of AED 1670/-

RIT Dubai Student Services Office handles all official government documents and transactions to obtain student visas and renewals. The students are responsible for the transaction fees to process the visa. Click here for more information on visa cost or please contact Mr. Aiden Urak, Government Affairs Coordinator Legal Department, at
