32,000 Indians in the UAE register to fly home

Dubai: More than 32,000 Indians in the UAE wishing to fly home during the COVID-19 pandemic registered their details on day one after the launch of the e-registration by the Indian missions here.
“As of 5pm on Thursday, we received more than 32,000 registrations,” Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul told Gulf News.

Meanwhile, the government of Kerala on Thursday said the total number of registrations it received from Malayalis living in 201 countries has reached 3,53,468.

“The highest among them, 1,53660 registrations, were from the UAE,” the Norka department said in a statement.

The Consul General urged Keralites in the UAE, who have already registered with Norka, to also register with the missions since it would help the central government to make arrangements for flight operations.
The Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Indian Consulate in Dubai on Wednesday night announced they were accepting the registration through the link

Within minutes of announcing the launch of the registration process, the site faced technical issues prompting the missions to delete the tweet about it and repost it hours later.

In a tweet posted in the wee hours of Thursday, the Indian Consulate asked applicants “to bear with it if it takes time for the page to load due to high traffic.”

When contacted later, the Consul General of India in Dubai Vipul told Gulf News that the technical issues took place because of the huge rush of people trying to access the webpage on the consulate’s site for registration.
