While in Switzerland, go up to Lake Constance or somewhere close to it to witness this magic.

The sad fact is that if you have a valid UAE tourist visa, there is no way to extend your stay without exiting the country. That is regardless to the duration of your visa, whether it is a 14-days tourist visa, a 30-days tourist visa, or a 90-days tourist visa (which is the longest visa offered to tourists). Nevertheless, you do not need to make a whole trip back home and reapply from there in order to come back to the UAE. You can take the easy road, and apply for an airport to airport visa changeA to A, for short.

The A to A visa change is the simplest, easiest, and relatively cheapest visa change package that almost every nationality could apply for. This automatically makes it the most popular option among tourists in the Emirates.

The airport visa change is where you literally just book a two-way ticket and let the rest be handled by your travel agent. Within a couple of hours, during which you will be flying to a country that is nearby to the UAE and coming back, your new tourist visa will be applied, and all you have to do is sit in the airport until it is approved by the immigration authorities in the UAE.

When we say “sit” at the airport, we mean enjoy the free internet, read a few chapters of a good book, have coffee or a meal in the many cafes, or the food court, or roam around on a mini shopping spree. The airport part can be fun if you know how to spend it.

It does not get any easier than this, so make sure to consider the A to A the next time you feel sad about having to exit the UAE.
