UAE announce new transit Visa policy

The UAE Cabinet has given the green light for preparations to implement the policy granting entry visas to transit passengers — across all airports in the country.

The visa will be granted to transit passengers who wish to visit the country's landmarks and tourist attractions. The new policy aims to enhance transit visa procedures to enable stopover passengers to enjoy a day out in the country, thus boosting the tourism industry.

The Cabinet formed a working group, led by the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, to prepare the new policy considering the possible positive effects it will have on the tourism sector and the economy in general.

About 70 percent of the total passengers who passed through the UAE's airports in 2017 were transit passengers.

The new policy will list visa fees, mechanisms for increasing the number of stop-over visitors, as well as ways to promote the country's tourist attractions.
