UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: Visa on Arrival Extended to More Indian Nationals

September 22, 2017

The Cabinet of the United Arab Emirates has approved the expansion of the visa on arrival program to Indian nationals who have a valid residence visa from either the United Kingdom or another European Union member state.

The new policy has not yet been implemented.


In May 2017, the UAE opened the visa-on-arrival program to Indian nationals holding US visas valid for at least six months, or green cards, who may enter and remain in the UAE for up to 14 days.
