Brigadier Nasser Awad Al Manhali, Director General of Residency and Naturalization Department in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain has said that recent amendments in the immigration and residency law was aimed at curbing violations in residency law.

In remarks on these amendments, Al Manhali said the move was also meant to check instances of visa trade. He allayed concerns by tourism offices, saying that tourist visas will not be affected.

"Tourism offices will not be affected by this decision. On the contrary, their activities will see a greater boom because more visas will now be obtained through the offices concerned rather than through individuals and companies which have no relations with tourism activities".

On the Dh1000 guarantee which we should be deposited before obtaining the tourist visa, Al Manhali said this guarantee money will be returned to the companies as soon as the visitor leaves the country.

He further explained that the financial guarantee of one Dh 1000 will be applicable on nationals of certain countries. "Instances of violations of residency and immigration law are higher among nationals of certain countries. Records of violations will be thoroughly examined and if the applicant of the tourist visa hails from countries with higher violation records, then a financial guarantee of Dh 1000 will be required. This guarantee is refundable when the tourist leaves", he said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
