Muhamed abdo - | UAE

Under the terms of a new VFS deal, Dubai's Emirates has announced that it will provide pre-approved visas upon arrival for Indian citizens

The partnership between Emirates Airline and VFS Global has resulted in the introduction of a convenient pre-approved visa-on-arrival service that is reserved solely for Indian passport holders who are traveling to Dubai.

The purpose of this program is to simplify the process of arriving at their destination for Emirates passengers, enabling them to avoid waiting in large lines and to quickly pass through customs when arriving at their destination.

This hassle-free service is available to Indian passengers who have already booked their flights with Emirates, according to a statement released by the airline on Thursday.

Emirates Announces Pre-approved Visa on Arrival Service

It is possible for consumers to apply for a visa to enter the United Arab Emirates by going to the portion of the airline website that is labeled "Manage an existing booking."

By clicking on this link, they will be taken to the online application site for the United Arab Emirates visa, which is powered by VFS Global Services. This site provides information regarding the requirements, terms, and conditions that are necessary for the application process. It is possible to obtain additional information by visiting the official website of Emirates.

Individuals who hold an Indian passport and are in possession of a valid six-month visa for the United States, a United States Green Card, EU Residency, or UK Residency are eligible to take advantage of this special visa-on-arrival service.

In spite of this, it is essential to keep in mind that the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs retains the authority to decide whether or not to issue visas.

Due to the fact that it offers a diverse selection of attractions and lodging alternatives that cater to a wide range of inclinations, ages, and budgets, Dubai is a popular destination for Indian tourists.

In addition, the city is home to a thriving Indian population that frequently extends a warm welcome to family and friends from India as well as other countries.

According to the numbers provided by Dubai Tourism, the city of Dubai received more than two million overnight guests from India between the months of January and October 2023.

There are now 167 weekly flights operated by Emirates to nine different destinations in India. These flights provide smooth connections to Dubai as well as over 140 other destinations across the world.

The cities of Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kochi, Kolkata, Mumbai, and Thiruvananthapuram are all included in the airline's network in India.

VFS Global's dedicated facility for processing visas for the United Arab Emirates is designated as the Dubai Visa Processing Centre (DVPC), which is solely designated by Emirates Airline and the Government of Dubai. This facility is accessible through VFS Global's internet portal, which is linked to the Emirates website.
