Student Visas


American University of Sharjah will assist accepted students in applying for a UAE student visa, if needed, as per UAE government rules and regulations. Approval of visa requests rests solely with the UAE Immigration Authority. Receiving an offer of admission or being admitted to AUS doesn’t mean your application for a visa to the UAE is approved.

Once you are admitted as a student to AUS and you have paid a seat reservation deposit of

AED 5,000 (inclusive of 5% VAT) you may then initiate your visa application process.
