This is an advantage to those who enter and leave the UAE quite often
It was announced on Wednesday, that UAE visitors can start applying for entry permits into the country in under 15 seconds.
The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs has stated that visitors can do so with the help of a new automated system that will ease entry into the UAE.
How does it work?
Well called automated system, called Entry permit 50+, will allow visa officials to issue eVisas to visitors with the help of Artificial Intelligence.
It was stated that the reason behind the name “50+” was due to the goal of making the country more efficient as if the UAE was working 50 years from now.
The AI-based technological system will process the eVisa without the need of any human intervention.
It has already helped complete over 5 million visa transactions in no time – cutting waiting time to zero, mistakes to 0 and actual service centre visits to 0.
How can I apply?
Applicants who wish to apply for this eVisa will need to go to the visa authority’s official website or smart app and apply through there.
It will then quickly scan all the documents submitted by the applicants and issue the visa on the spot in less than 15 seconds – because it is connected to government entities and programs, the AI system can easily fast-check the documents and verify their authenticity.
50+ also has to ability to detect fraudulent documents and suspicious applicants by sending their relevant information to security officials to check.
