Is it mandatory to have a computerised passport for on arrival visa at Dubai airport?

By lamea

We are planning to visit Dubai We all have computerised passports and we always get on-arrival visa but the problem is that my one month old daughter has a manual passport and is not eligible for a computerised passport for the first six months. I am curious whether she will be allowed to enter Dubai or not. Is that so?

Check with UAE embassy to be on safer side.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, and it was OK. I just had to go to a different counter. I really don't know if they are giving an exception for a specific period of time.
