DUBAI, July 30, 2019

Equatorial Guinea has exempted UAE citizens with diplomatic and ordinary passports from requiring pre-entry visas, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) announced.

The decision by Equatorial Guinea's government came into force on July 28, enabling UAE citizens to visit Equatorial Guinea for 90 days without a pre-entry visa.

The agreement was signed in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea by Yacoub Yousef Al Hosani, MoFAIC's assistant Minister for International Organisations Affairs, and Simeon Ayuno Asuno Angie, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation of Equatorial Guinea.

The agreement stipulates that holders of diplomatic passports may enter the country visa-free, but holders of ordinary passports must acquire a visa upon entry after paying the appropriate fees.

Ahmed Sari Al Mazrouei, MoFAIC under-secretary, said that the agreement can be added to the achievements of the Emirati diplomacy, led by H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The decision reflects the strong ties between the two countries, which are based on mutual cooperation in various political, economic and commercial areas, he added.

It also highlights the UAE’s international stature, and the keenness of Equatorial Guinea to reinforce its ties with the UAE and promote their mutual interests, Al Mazrouei noted. - TradeArabia News Service
