Student Visa and Accommodation

For international students, we also provide a 1 year student visa at a cost of Dhs 4500 (which includes visa + medical + security + Emirates ID card). The visa process is only for students undertaking our full professional certification courses and not the short (3 months) certificate options. The visa generally takes 15-20 days to process and can be done whether the student is outside the country or inside the country.

EMDI does not have a Hostel of its own, however, housing accommodation can be found via local agents and we recommend locations such as JLT, Discovery Garden, TECOM, Al Barsha which are close by to the Institute and cost effective. Students are can also take accommodation with other batch-mates if possible after joining the course.

The Institute is located right opposite the Dubai Tram Al Sufouh Stop and is a 10 minute walk or 3 minute bus ride from the Dubai Internet City Metro Station
