UAE Suspends Foreign Visas Due to COVID-19

COVID-19: UAE suspends issuance of all visas

The UAE has suspended all visas to all foreigners, with the exception of diplomatic passport holders on Saturday. The suspension will be effective from March 17. This is a breaking news.

In a statement released on Saturday, the Federal Authority for Identity And Citizenship (ICA) said: “The move comes as part of the precautionary measures taken by the UAE in response to the World Health Organisation’s declaration of COVID-19 as a pandemic, a development which reflects the high risks now associated with travel under the current circumstances,” Gulf media reported.

The decision does not apply to those who already have their visas issued prior to the aforementioned date.

The ICA noted that the additional precautionary decision will be valid until a mechanism for medical examination has been established in the countries of departure as part of other global measures taken for the common good of all nations of the world to curb the proliferation of the novel virus.
