Student Visas

AUS will facilitate UAE student visa applications for accepted students who require visas, 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 that an applicant's visa to the UAE is approved or confirmed.

Undergraduate applicants admitted to AUS are required to pay a seat reservation deposit of AED 5,000 to initiate the visa application process.  

Graduate applicants may proceed with the visa process once admitted.

Please note that GCC citizens do not need to have student visas to study at AUS.

International students who do not have a UAE residency visa, will need to obtain a visa to study at AUS.

To apply for student visas, tips for arrival on campus, visa transfer procedures and other important information refer to

For any updates regarding your visa status, please contact the Public Relations Department directly. The Office of Enrollment Management cannot provide any information regarding the status of your visa application.


Once again, we thank you for your interest in AUS. If you require information regarding your student visa, please email
