Turnaround visa gets positive response

posted on 13/07/2002: 856 views

As more and more tourists around the world pack their bags to board a flight to Dubai to be in the fun city in time for the Dubai Summer Surprises, Emirates' facility of 96-hour turnaround visa is becoming popular by the day.

The commercial visa section of Emirates, one of the fastest growing airlines in the world, reported a brisk business as tourists from around the world want to get hold of the opportunity of 96-hour turnaround Dubai visa for just $14 extra.

Since the launch of the scheme on May 28, 600 tourists mostly from Nairobi and Johannesburg have availed the opportunity. "We are happy to offer the facility to the tourists and our commercial visa section reports a growing interest," said an Emirates spokesperson. The turnaround visa incentive, which coincides with the launch of the fourth-year of the Dubai Summer Surprises festival, is for all tourists coming in Dubai regardless of their country of origin.

"The commercial visa section of Emirates was already issuing transit visas to passengers who were interested in a short stopover in Dubai while travelling by the carrier from point A to point B," an Emirates spokesperson said at the launch of the scheme. "What is different this time is that a tourist can directly come to Dubai, spend 96 hours here and fly back home (on Emirates, of course)." (The Khaleej Times)
