UAE Entry Permit issuance resumed
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) has announced that it has resumed issuing entry permits into the country, adding that work permits are still on hold.
The resumption of this service commenced on 24th September 2020 and is within the framework of easing restrictions and strengthening the state’s efforts towards supporting recovery plans of the country’s tourism sector and economy.
The Authority stated that the decision also follows the precautionary measures undertaken by the travel industry to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
The decision to suspend the issuance of visas was put in place in March, with the exception of diplomatic passport holders, as part of the country’s efforts to combat the spread of the virus.
