Keralites availing amnesty in UAE to fly home for free

Abu Dhabi: Illegal UAE residents from Kerala who wish to avail of the upcoming visa amnesty to exit the country will be flown to India for free, the south Indian state's Chief Minister, Pinarayi Vijayan, announced on Monday.

"Those who wish to apply for it should get in touch with the nine (amnesty) centres that will be opened there (UAE). The state-run Roots-Norka will coordinate for their smooth return ... They will be brought home for free and safely. The first batch of arrivals will take place in the middle of August," said Vijayan.

Norka resident vice-chairman K. Varadarajan told Khaleej Times that the entity would provide free air tickets to Malayalees availing of the amnesty. "The air tickets are expensive during this season and we understand many people won't be able to afford it. So our first priority is to make sure that expats can return home safely.
