Dubai Visit Visas Banned by UAE for 20 Countries

Abu Dhabi: The United Arab Emirates has imposed a ban on the citizens of 20 countries for Dubai visit visas.

According to international news agencies, the United Arab Emirates has imposed restrictions on citizens of 20 countries to issue Dubai visit visas.  The ban is now in immediate effect, impacting multiple African countries.

The countries’ citizens on whom restrictions have been imposed for Dubai visit visas by the UAE include Burundi, the Republic of Guinea, the Gambia, Togo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Cameroon, Nigeria, Liberia, Senegal, Benin, Ivory Coast, Congo, Rwanda, Burkina Faso, Guinea-Bissau, and Comoros.

This ban was put in place as a component of the UAE’s continuous initiatives to tackle immigration-related issues and the purpose of this ban is to reduce overstaying beyond the set limits in the UAE and the engagement in illegal employment activities.

It is important to note that the decision to impose restrictions on citizens of these 20 countries for Dubai visit visas came after the UAE introduced a new visa system, which includes halting visas for Nigerian citizens who are below the age of 40.
