Online visas from next year

posted on 12/08/2008: 1485 views

The Ministry of Interior announced on Monday that people can apply for all types of visas online through its web site from January next year. The applicants will be able to apply for all types of visas and receive the visas online. They can also pay the fees and charges online using credit cards, even if the UAE sponsor is not available in the country.

The Naturalisation and Residency Department concerned would mail the requested visa to the sponsor, Major-General Mattar Salim bin Mesaied Al Neiadi, Director of the IT Department at the MoI, told Khaleej Times.

Major Khaled Nasser Al Taei, Head of the System Development Section at the IT Department, told Khaleej Times that the applicants — who are currently required to take a printout of the filled-in application form, attach the required documents and submit them at the nearest Naturalisation and Residency Department to receive the visa immediately after document verification — will no longer have do that after the launch of the online service. The identification documents of sponsors, be they nationals or residents, would be entered into the database for verification before the launch. The move will save time and effort of the applicants, Al Taei said. – Khaleej Times
