Emirates Airlines announces a previous entry visa

Abdallah Shahin - | UAE

For passengers flying from India, Emirates Airlines has an exclusive arrangement with the Global Visa Center «VFS Global» that allows them to get a pre-approved visa before they arrive at the airport.

The entry visa is valid for one month and can be obtained at the Dubai Center for Visas Transactions (DVPC). This program aims to streamline the admission process for Emirates Airlines dealers, allowing them to avoid long lines upon arriving in Dubai. "Emirates Airlines" has announced that passengers can book their flights on the airline's website (Emirates.com) or through qualified travel agencies. Furthermore, by utilizing the "Reservations Management/ Travel Procedures" section of EMIRATES.COM, visitors can access the "Submit an application for an entry visa to the United Arab Emirates" link. This will redirect them to the UAE visa requests page, which is backed by "VFS Global"services. Here, all the necessary requirements, conditions, and other details are laid out to make the application process easier.

In a statement, the General Administration of Residence and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai clarified that this service is only offered to Indian passport holders with a six-month visa.

Dubai is the go-to spot for Indian tourists since it caters to all ages, interests, and budgets with its wide array of attractions and housing possibilities. In addition, it warmly welcomes Indian and international friends and family and celebrates a thriving Indian community.

Two million Indian tourists visited the emirate between January and October of 2023, according to Dubai Tourism Statistics.

Connecting passengers from Dubai and other cities to a worldwide network of over 140 destinations, Emirates Airlines operates 167 flights weekly via nine Indian locations. Emirates Airlines flies into nine different cities in India: Ahmed Abad, Banjaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Struvannananthapuram.

Notably, the Duba Center for visa transactions (DVPC) is the sole VFS GLOBAL attachment that Emirates Airlines and the Dubai government use to process entry visas to the UAE through their online portal, www.emirates.com.

• The General Administration of Residency and Foreigners in Dubai issues the entry visa once for a period of 14 days, and its issuance is subject to their approval.
