UAE New Transit Visa

Transit passengers across all the UAE airports will soon be able to step out for a quick tour of the cities, rather than wasting their time waiting for their flights. The UAE government announced their plan for transit passengers to enjoy day out in UAE under new visa policy. Currently just over 50 select nationalities are eligible to get visa on arrival at the UAE airports, which means a majority of the passengers waiting for their connecting flights, have no choice but to wait at the airport’s transit lounge. The new policy aims to enhance transit visa procedures to enable stopover passengers to enjoy a day out in the country. Passengers transiting via any of the airports in the country will be able to obtain entry visas.
