Tourist visas: no­body seems to have ba­sic in­for­ma­tion

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

I re­cently made three en­quiries from dif­fer­ent Visa Agen­cies re­gard­ing age limit for one to be is­sued a Tourist Visa. I got three dif­fer­ent re­sponses, which are 21, 25 and 30. I got con­fused so I called Im­mi­gra­tion Of­fice Call Cen­tre and the re­sponse I got added more con­fu­sion. For one to be con­sid­ered a mi­nor or ma­jor de­pends on the coun­try of ori­gin. Fine, I gave the lady on the line the name of my coun­try and she told me she did not know and I have to wait un­til Sun­day when the Visa Of­fice will be open. My ques­tion is who is sup­posed to have this kind of in­for­ma­tion, Visa Agen­cies or Im­mi­gra­tion? I con­sider this as very ba­sic in­for­ma­tion, which all staff in im­mi­gra­tion must have on hand. I have had sim­i­lar ex­pe­ri­ences with most banks where staff lack prod­uct knowl­edge of what they sell. Joe Rug Dubai
