Dubai Open To Receiving More Visitors

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has announced a new visa regime which will make it possible for visitors from all countries to get a multiple-entry tourist visa valid for five years.

This development was announced by Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-president and prime minister of the UAE and ruler of Dubai, on Monday after his first Council of Ministers meeting for the new year.

Naija News reports Dubai, UAE’s commercial city, is a favourite destination for Nigerian travellers interested in shopping, vacation, tourism and other forms of leisure as well as business.

According to Maktoum the country receives more than 21 million tourists and the new move is part of plans to further position the country as a tourism hub and major global tourist destination.

Prior to the extension, tourists could only get a 30-day or 90-day visa duration, depending on the country.

“Today we approved the change of the tourist visa system in the country … so that the duration of the tourist visa is five years, multi-use .. for all nationalities .. we receive more than 21 million tourists annually and our aim is to establish the country as a major global tourist destination,” Maktoum said on Twitter.

I chaired the first meeting of the Council of Ministers in the new year … We reviewed the achievements of a year ago … Our plan for a new year has come … The year 2020 will be a different year because it is the year of preparation for its fifty .. the year in which we design the future emirates.”
