Why is OK to Board (OTB) needed?
Due to an expansion in fake visas to UAE, many Indian passengers were deported back
in the past. In order to control the fake visa issuance and any fraudulent
activities; airlines and sponsors double check the UAE Visa and Air tickets before
departure and only after checking the visa authenticity, airlines update visa
message in the respective PNR.
What is the time taken to get the OTB?
The Airline verifies the Dubai Visa and only then updates an Ok to Board message
against the PNR. Airlines generally will take at least 24-48 working hours to
update PNR after issuance of VISA.
What is the main purpose behind updating the OTB?
Your airline mandates you to update OTB message in the PNR primarily to confirm the
legitimacy of your Dubai Visa as well as other relevant travel documents, thereby
eliminating the chances of travellers making entry to the country with a forged
visa and subsequently getting deported by the UAE immigration.
What if my OTB status is not updated?
In such circumstances, your airline has the complete right to disapprove your
boarding. To resolve this issue at the earliest, don’t delay to get in touch with
our Dubai Visa Experts.
What if my Dubai Visa gets rejected?
The approval of the Dubai Visa is solely regulated by the government of the UAE and
governed by their rules & regulations and the rejection of the Dubai visa
application is the sole prerogative of the immigration authorities, therefore Akbar
Travels will not be held responsible in case of visa rejection or delay.
Is the Dubai Visa fee refundable if it has been rejected?
No, the Dubai Visa fee is non-refundable in all cases, including if the visa
application is rejected.

The purpose of your visit will determine the type of Dubai Visa you need to apply

stamped in your passport ahead of travel. All Dubai Visas are sent by email. You
should print out a copy of your Visa before you travel, and carry it with you.

Dubai is a melting pot of cultures, and while it has embraced the modern and the
futuristic approach, it hasn’t forgotten its roots. Al-Fahidi, the oldest part of
the city is well preserved and is a reminder of the olden days. Dubai is a
playground of sorts, from palm-shaped islands to the energetic, tall buildings,
from the super-fast hyper-loop to flying taxis; Dubai is more than just an
ambitious city. It is the city of dreams which is fearlessly in love with its
futuristic vision and in complete control and charge of writing its own narrative.
Dubai is located on the Eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula, in the south west
corner of the Arabian Gulf. It is extremely well known for its warm hospitality and
rich cultural heritage, and the Emirati people are welcoming and generous in their
approach to visitors. With year-round sunshine, intriguing deserts, beautiful
beaches, luxurious hotels and shopping malls, fascinating heritage attractions and
a thriving business community, Dubai receives millions of leisure and business
visitors each year from around the world.
More than 125 airlines fly to Dubai from destinations around the world, and a
first-rate network of highways connect Dubai and neighbouring GCC countries.
Whether travelling by car or bus, a modern network of first-class roads and
highways link the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates.
