- SAFETY CONCERNS
As a travel agency, we feel highly responsible for the safety of our guests and your safety is a top priority in all we do. In view of this, we encourage our prospective clients to travel only when it is safe to do so. We have made our packages very flexible to allow clients to choose to travel any date from now till Sept 2021. The destinations we promote are also countries that have demonstrated a high level of concern for the health and safety of citizens and international tourists. We have selected hotels that have put in place Covid-19 Safety Measures for guests and the same applies to the attraction centers. You can be rest assured that we will always prioritize your health and safety in all we do at Adansi. However, the ultimate responsibility for your safety and health during the trip rest on you and you must travel only when you are 100% fit to do so and must at all times adhere to the safety measures put in place by Health Authorities at any destination you may find yourself.
- PACKAGE CONTENT
We have taken our time to state the content of each package under the costing. It is your responsibility to take your time and go through this before you make your final decision. We will endeavor to deliver as per the advertised content. If any component needs to be changed after booking as a result of situations beyond our control, we will inform you in advance and come to an agreeable term. Your payment entitles you to only the content as advertised in our official channels per the particular tour booked.
- HOTEL ACCOMMODATION
Hotel Accommodation is based on twin/double sharing in the star category chosen. All sharing rooms will have two separate beds for people of same-sex sharing and a double bed for couples. For, those traveling alone and may not want to share, you can make extra payment identified on the rate sheets as single supplement. This is the extra amount of money required to book your package under single room use. Most hotels have their check-in from 2:00-3:00pm and the check out from 11:00am-12:00pm. Early check-in or late check out is entirely based on the availability of the hotel and cannot be guaranteed by Adansi Travels. For flights arriving very early, you can book an extra night earlier than your arrival date to guarantee early check-in. For flights departing very late, you may book extra night beyond the advertised room nights to guarantee late check out. We have included all mandatory hotel taxes in our rate except in Dubai where Tourism Dirham Fees of $3-5/night/room is excluded. This fee is supposed to be paid by the guest directly upon check-in or check out depending on the hotel’s policy. We carefully select our hotels to make sure your safety and comfort is assured. Our 3-star hotels give you standard services, 4-star hotels offer superior services whiles the 5-star hotels give luxury services. We implore you to book as per your budget considerations and your expectations for the trip. All hotel rooms are priced based on the starting room category of the particular hotel chosen. Should you require room upgrade, you can indicate that prior to your scheduled trip so we check and update you on the extra cost involved. The hotel names given in our tour brochures are to help you know the standard of service per each star category. We cannot guarantee securing the same mentioned hotels as that will depend on availability, but we will ensure that we provide hotels with similar comforts as those advertised per each star category. We have no control on hotel’s check-in process and room or floor assignment as that is entirely based on availability at the time of check-in. It is your responsibility to ensure that a hotel room given you meets the acceptable standard of the hotel.

- UAE TOURIST VISA RULES
Adansi Travels has a high reputation for getting visas granted to their applicants. However, the entire decision to grant or refuse UAE visas is the sole decision of the Dubai Immigration. The Visa fee is non-refundable once applied irrespective of the outcome. If for any reason visa is refused, the visa fee of $150 will be deducted from the deposit amount paid and the rest refunded based on the refund policy of the tour.
The normal processing time for the visa is usually 5-7 working days. Applicants are advised to submit documents early enough to smoothen the process and receive visas ahead of the traveling date. Visa can only be applied from Sunday to Thursday as Friday and Saturday are weekends.
The validity of the visa is usually 2 weeks to 2 months depending on the visa type and the stay period varies from 96 hours to 1 month.
As a tour participant, you agree to leave Dubai before the expiry of your visa. Should you overstay for any reason, you shall bear all the charges related to that overstay as stipulated by the Dubai Immigration.
In the event that tour participants exceed their stay in the UAE beyond the validity of their visa, such clients are recorded as an “Overstay / Absconder” by the UAE Authorities. Under the circumstances, the person will be liable for the following penalties:
– USD 2,000.00 per person for violation penalties to cover fines and deportation charges.
– USD 55.00 per person for the first day of overstays.
– USD 27.00 per person for each following overstay day.
The above charges are fixed and are non-negotiable.
In view of the above, all tour applicants are highly encouraged to return before the expiry of their visas to avoid unnecessary penalties.
