Visa restrictions to hit UAE tourism

posted on 27/12/2006: 1371 views



Possible restrictions by the UAE government on visas granted to nationals of certain countries on arrival here may affect tourism, industry executives said. But the UAE's case that its citizens should be given equal reciprocal treatment in those countries whose nationals enjoy the benefits of visas on arrival here is justified, they insisted.



The cabinet on Sunday asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to review its visa regulations because some countries, particularly in Europe, are refusing to grant Emiratis the same facilities their nationals get at UAE ports. At present the citizens of 34 countries are allowed to enter the UAE without obtaining visas in advance. On the other hand, Emirati business people, tourists and students visiting certain Western countries face stringent visa procedures. (Gulf News)
