In a bid to boost the tourism sector and make travelling to country easier, the UAE is planning to introduce five-year visas for tourists later this year.
5-year visas for tourists in the UAE
As of now, a tourist can visit the UAE for a maximum period of three months, and must exit the country to file for a new tourist visa. You’ve probably faced the hassle when applying for your family or friends.
At last, here’s some relief. The UAE is going easy with tourist visas, usable for five years and a tourist can stay for a maximum period of six months each visit. The rule comes in line with the UAE’s vision over the next 50 years. Here’s what the Emir of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum says:
Today, I chaired the first meeting of the Dubai Council .. We approved the development of a plan of fifty goals for Dubai within the next five years, which we will announce within 60 days. Fifty goals in the plan we will include in the performance agreements of general managers. What we announce will be implemented by the team … or we will replace the teamHH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum
