Visit visa bond to wait in Dubai

posted on 12/05/2002: 1418 views

Dubai immigration officials are adopting a wait-and-see policy before enforcing the controversial Dh2,000 bond for people arriving on visit visas. The Ministry of Interior and the Dubai Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) have agreed to postpone enforcing the new rule until the department assesses the results of implementation in Abu Dhabi and the Northern Emirates.

Abu Dhabi Naturalisation and Residency Department yesterday started implementation of the visit visa bond, while the departments in Sharjah and Ajman did so last Tuesday. Col. Saeed Matar bin Bleilah, Director General of the Department, told Gulf News yesterday that the rule requiring payment of a Dh2,000 bond by the sponsor will be implemented at a later stage after assessing the experience of naturalisation and residency departments in other emirates.

He added that DNRD is waiting to receive from the Ministry the evaluation of other departments regarding implementation. A source at the Ministry told Gulf News that the department in Abu Dhabi is going to issue visit visas and implement the Dh2,000 bond to be paid by the sponsors of people who enter the emirate.

According to the source, the sponsor is required to pay a deposit of Dh2,000 for each visa applied for. He explained that the sponsor will deposit the money in any bank he wants and will bring proof of this deposit to the immigration and residency department. This "bond" will be kept at the department and will not be returned until the visitor leaves the country. This procedure will be carried out with cooperation between the departments and the banks.
