Soft launch of UAE’s online visit visa from today
GCC residence permit holders who were until now eligible for visa on arrival in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are required to secure a visa online before they embark on the journey, starting today.
A staff at the Doha office of a UAE-based airline told Gulf Times that the new online system which would be soft launched today applied only to expatriates who were eligible to avail the visa on arrival facility.
She said people who are non-eligible and those who will be rejected while applying online can apply or re-apply at any of the airlines’ offices.
The UAE immigration authorities have a list of GCC expatriate workers who qualified for the visa on arrival scheme, mostly professionals such as doctors, engineers, nurses, architects and journalists, among others, according to the airline staff.
She noted that the online visa process took about two working days while the regular procedure took about four to seven working days or maybe more.
