TORONTO: The United Arab Emirates embassy in Canada has announced it will charge Canadians up to US$998 for visas, pricing that exceeds usual international visa fees.

The embassy posted the new rates on its website, including a 30-day, non-renewable visa that will cost US$249, a three-month visa for US$499, and a six-month multiple entry at US$998.

The new fees come into effect Jan. 2. The decision to require visas was announced in November amid a bitter dispute between the two countries after Canada's Conservative government refused to grant extra landing rights to two major UAE airlines .

Melissa Lantsman, a spokeswoman for Canada's foreign affairs minister, said Tuesday that the fee structure would not sway the government to reverse its decision on landing rights for UAE airlines.
