Dubai starts issuing visit visas to more nationalities

New Delhi: Dubai has started issuing tourist visas to inbound passengers from more countries including India.

Dubai, a global tourism hub, suspended issuing visit visas in March as a precautionary measure to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai has started issuing visit visas to all nationalities with a few exceptions, the Amer centre and travel agents confirmed.

A customer service employee at an Amer branch said that they have started receiving applications for residency and visit visas and there are no restrictions on nationalities.

"Applications are now received but it will take some time before approval is issued," an employee said.

"For the tourist visas, applicants must apply at the tourism agencies."

The employee noted that their offices would close during Eid break and reopen on Monday. Asianet Online
