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, you may then initiate your visa application process.
For detailed information please refer to https://www.aus.edu/admissions/international-students/student-visas.
Visa and Equalization Services (VES) assists students with immigration and visa issues. If you have any questions, please contact VES@aus.edu.
For any updates regarding your visa status, please contact the Visa and Equalization Services (VES) directly. The Office of Enrollment Management cannot provide any information regarding the status of your visa application.
Thank you for your interest in AUS!
