I got a tourist visa for UAE with my old passport number which was renewed on January 2015.

I got the new passport with new number and in the last page old passport number also mentioned. Can I travel to UAE with this visa by keeping both passports?

Yes. this is absolutely normal although I have only done it with a USA visa but that's how you do this: keep the expired passport, typically it's invalidated by punching two holes through the identification page but otherwise it's still usable. Present both passports at the border and that's it.

    Every country has its own rules, so what works with the USA doesn't necessarily work with other countries.
