Don't Get Caught Without a Valid TRN in Dubai - Here's How to Check Yours

A lot of visitors to Dubai are caught off guard when they realize that their 30-day tourist visa (TRN) has expired and they must leave the country immediately or risk getting thrown in jail. Most are surprised by this because they thought that their TRN was good for one year (like it is in other countries).

What Is A Trade Register Number (TRN)?

A Trade Register Number (TRN) is issued by your business’ country of registration. This is known as your legal entity. For example, if you are based in Dubai, your company would be registered under an Emirate or Free Zone authority, and therefore you would need a UAE-issued TRN. If you are based outside of Dubai but still within UAE borders, then you will need an Abu Dhabi-issued TRN. If you have multiple branches or offices within UAE borders, then each branch/office will require its own unique number.
