Now you can apply for your Abu Dhabi visa online. The General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) has launched E-Channels, in line with Emirates Vision 2021. The online portal will allow users to upload the documents required for visa issuance and renewal and allow them to complete the process of getting their visa without visiting an immigration office.
