Please be aware that you initially need to Register a user account, the site will then send you a user activation email, this can take up to 3 hours in some cases. Once your user account is activated you can apply for your GCC visa through it.

First time applications take longer, however the system retains your information so next time you apply the system already has the information and the application process is fast. It is not easy for someone else to do your application for you as there is personal information that needs to be filled out that is not on your passport.

You do not need a ticket or hotel booking, but you do need to know your dates of travel as you will be asked for them.

Also make sure you have a white background passport photo of you, a copy of your passport and residence page when applying, all must be in jpg. format - make sure they are not a large size.
