The Emirati government has reached an agreement with the Republic of Armenia on a mutual visa-free policy.

Key Points:

  • Citizens of both countries will be able to travel without the need to apply for an entry visa as long as they hold a passport with at least six months of validity.
  • Eligibility will vary from nationality to nationality, and visa fees may apply for individuals above the age of 18.
  • Travelers will be allowed a maximum stay of 90 days within a 180-day period.

Additional Information: The Emirati government has introduced various measures recently to increase inbound travel from foreign tourists. A separate mutual visa-free travel agreement with Uzbekistan was recently announced. The agreement will allow citizens holding passports with at least six months of validity to enter and stay for a period of up to 30 days per visit.

BAL Analysis: The new agreements are designed to help foster stronger ties and make exploration and cultural exchange between other countries more accessible. The Emirati government also hopes to create opportunities for increased tourism to stimulate economic growth.
