IMPACT – LOW
What is the change? Abu Dhabi International Airport has opened a dedicated counter to grant four-day transit visas to transiting passengers.
What does the change mean? Passengers whose layover exceeds four hours may apply for the 96-hour transit visa at the new counter in Terminal 3.
Background: Abu Dhabi’s tourism agency launched the new counter jointly with the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners Affairs. Passengers who want to apply for a 96-hour transit visa must hold a passport that is valid for at least six months and pay the government fee of 300 Emirati dirhams (about US$82).
BAL Analysis: The streamlined visa service is part of the government’s initiative to attract tourists and other visitors to Abu Dhabi.
