Indians with visit visas can’t travel to UAE yet: Envoy

Abu Dhabi: Indian citizens were still not allowed to travel to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) on visit visas until there is clarification on the travel protocol, Indian Ambassador Pavan Kapoor.

“At this point, it is not clear whether the UAE is allowing people to come on visit visas or not. We are awaiting clarity on that. Also, the government of India is yet to decide whether to allow people to travel on visit visas,” he told Khaleej Times on Monday.
The envoy confirmed that airlines are not carrying passengers with visit visa as of now.

Khaleej Times had reported that Dubai has started issuing visit visas to more countries, including India, starting July 29.

Though there was no official announcement, travel agents and Amer centre confirmed that restrictions on a number of nationalities have been lifted while issuing visit visas.

However, it was not clear how the visit visa holders would travel to the UAE as commercial flight operations are still suspended in India.

UAE-bound Vande Bharat mission flights operated by Air India and Air India Express are only flying people with valid UAE residence visa.
