FREE visa extension for Dubai tourists until March 31
Tourists visiting Dubai have had their visa extended until the end of March for free, according to various local reports.
Tourists reported their visas have been automatically extended after they checked their e-visa status online.
Travel agents confirmed that the validity of Dubai visas they applied for on behalf of their clients have been automatically extended to March 31.
A source from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs told the local paper that visas had been extended to those with expired one-month and three-month visit and tourist visas.
UAE PM announced on December 27 a free one-month visa extension to all tourists. The announcement came when several countries-imposed lockdowns and restrictions on movement and air travel due to the new and more infectious covid-19 variant.
Pakistan and India also released statements saying that the UAE government had extended the validity of visit visas issued before December 28 until March 31.
However, travel agents warn tourists to check their visas as the extension may not apply to all, with some having to pay fines for overstaying.
