UAE introduces multiple entry visas by email
Posted on May 24, 2015
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Government, for the first time, has launched two new multiple entry visas. It’s been a long standing demand of travellers across the world for a multiple entry long term visa to the UAE. TT Services, the official worldwide visa partner of Etihad Airways, shall now process these visas to all guests of Etihad Airways, globally. Guest simply apply for a visa online and can get visas by email.
The visas can benefit specific segment of people:
– tourists who would like to break their journeys into parts- visiting the UAE in the first leg, going out of the region and returning to the UAE after a few days
– frequent flier corporate travellers
Talking about the two new visas types, Sridhar Krishnamurthy, director- operations, TT Services said, “I have had a lot of enquiries from various segments of people for about 10 or 15 years about multiple entry visas to visit Abu Dhabi. The UAE Government has given a reason to cheer. And we at TT Services have made it as easy as possible for anyone to get these visas.”
The two new visas:
30-day multiple entry tourist visa (for all countries)
90-day multiple entry (long term) visa (only for India, Jordan, Pakistan, South Africa, UAE citizens)
Krishnamurthy added, “Many large cities across UAE have positioned themselves business-friendly or the preferred destinations for tourists. The launch of these new visas combined with Etihad’s ‘reimagined’ campaign is something many travellers across segments are loving.”
During the year 2014, the Abu Dhabi International airport alone handled around 20 million inbound, outbound and transfer passengers. Of this, Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, alone handled 14.8 million or 74 per cent of all people travelling through Abu Dhabi. If combined with the equity partners of Etihad Airways such as Jet Airways, the share goes up to 82 per cent of passenger traffic.
