Tourists can now secure visa on arrival in Abu Dhabi and other parts of the UAE starting Thursday
The UAE has resumed issuing entry permits into the country from Thursday September 24, announced The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA).
The Authority added that however, work permits are still on hold at this stage.
The resumption of this service is within the framework of easing restrictions and strengthening the state's efforts towards supporting recovery plans of the country's tourism sector and economy.
ICA stated on social media that the decision also follows the precautionary measures undertaken by the travel industry to reduce the spread of the Covid-19 outbreak.
The issuance of UAE visas was put on a freeze in March, with the exception of visitors on a diplomatic passport, in an effort to reduce the spread of the pandemic.
