UAE to issue tourist visas, with 14-day rider, to Indian passport holders

Indian passport holders, who have not been to the country in the past 14 days, can obtain tourist visas for the United Arab Emirates, according to a news article published on Sunday.

The facility has been extended to Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Uganda, with the exception of India, Gulf News reported.

Currently, only UAE citizens and transit passengers are allowed to travel to the UAE, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The approval of tourist visas for Indian passport holders, who have not been in the country in the past fortnight, comes as the UAE slowly opens its arrivals.

All travelers will be required to undergo a polymerase chain reaction test on the day of arrival and on the ninth day after arriving in the UAE.

Meanwhile, the UAE has announced that it will accept passengers from Pakistani airports in Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. Previously, arrivals from Pakistan were only allowed for passenger transit.

The coronavirus has killed 2,018 people and 708,302 confirmed infections in the United Arab Emirates, according to Johns Hopkins University.
