DUBAI: The UAE Cabinet has approved a proposal for multiple tourist entry visas for all nationalities. This move comes in the wake of reviving tourism in the Emirates. Reportedly, the cabinet also approved ‘Virtual Visa’, which is a new visa category that will enable people to work online from Dubai irrespective of where their office is located.
As the multiple-entry tourist visa facility will be made available for all nationalities, this visa will come with a validity of 90 days, which will restrict re-entry after the expiry of approved three months validity. Reports have it that this new proposal will enable people to enter and exit the Emirates multiple times.
The new rule is in line with several initiatives that has recently been approved by the Cabinet during a meeting that was chaired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President and Prime Minister, and the Ruler of Dubai. This move is also aimed at positioning the UAE as an ideal tourist and work destination.
