UAE resumes issuance of visas

ABU DHABI, September 24, 2020

The UAE Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship has announced that it has resumed issuing entry visas into the country as of Thursday (September 24).
However, the authority added that work permits are still on hold at this stage, said a Wam news agency report.
The resumption of this service is within the framework of easing restrictions and strengthening the state's efforts towards supporting recovery plans of the country's tourism sector and economy.
The authority stated that the decision also follows the precautionary measures undertaken by the travel industry to reduce the spread of Covid-19.
The decision to suspend the issuance of visas was put in place in March, with the exception of diplomatic passport holders, as part of the country's efforts to combat the spread of the virus.
