IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? The United Arab Emirates has implemented an agreement that allows Indian nationals holding U.S. green cards or visas to enter the UAE without first obtaining an entry visa.
What does the change mean? Effective immediately, Indian nationals holding U.S. green cards or visas that are valid for at least six months can travel to the UAE for business or tourism and obtain a visa on arrival that is good for up to 14 days.
Background: As BAL reported last month, the UAE and India agreed to the visa-on-arrival agreement in late March. The agreement took effect May 1, allowing eligible Indian nationals to remain in the UAE for up to 14 days on a visa on arrival. Those who intend to stay longer than 14 days may obtain an extension for a charge.
BAL Analysis: The change simplifies the visa process for eligible Indian nationals traveling for business or as tourists to the UAE.
