The UAE has ap­proved a de­ci­sion to grant visa-on-ar­rival to In­dian pass­port hold­ers with the UK or Euro­pean Union res­i­dence visas.

The de­ci­sion was taken at a cabi­net meet­ing last week chaired by Sheikh Mo­hammed bin Rashid al Mak­toum, Vice Pres­i­dent and Prime Min­is­ter of UAE and the Ruler of Dubai.

The de­ci­sion was also later tweeted by Sheikh Mo­hammed. “We have passed a reg­u­la­tion for In­dian pass­port hold­ers who hold res­i­dency in the UK and EU to re­ceive visa-on-ar­rival.”

Ear­lier this year, the UAE cabi­net had ap­proved a sim­i­lar de­ci­sion for In­dian pass­port hold­ers with ei­ther a US visa or green card. The de­ci­sion comes within the frame­work of the long-term strate­gic part­ner­ship in po­lit­i­cal and eco­nomic ar­eas be­tween the UAE and In­dia.

It also aims to pro­mote UAE as a global tourist and eco­nomic hub.
