The UAE is barring entry to holders of valid resident visas for a renewable period of two weeks, effective Thursday March 19.

The country’s suspension of work visa issuance and visas-on-arrival beginning Thursday will also continue “until further notice.”

UAE residents currently overseas are advised to contact the UAE diplomatic mission in their respective host countries for “all necessary support to facilitate their return back to the UAE.”

If you are impacted by these changes to visa acceptance, please contact your dedicated reservations team as soon as possible.
