If your passport doesn't list your name in the correct way, new visa regulations enforced by the UAE may prevent you from travelling to this gulf nation.
New Delhi: Be careful before going to the UAE; your new visa may prevent you from landing in this Gulf country.
If your passport doesn’t list your name in the correct way, new visa regulations enforced by the UAE may prevent you from travelling to this gulf nation.
According to the new regulations, a traveller needs to make sure that both their first name and last name are listed on their passport. Passengers whose passports lack both their first and last names won’t be permitted entry into the UAE. The restriction only applies to those coming to the UAE on tourist or on-arrival visas.
Passengers with a single name on their passports are not eligible for visas and are not permitted to enter or exit the UAE, according to UAE authorities’ regulations.
The passenger with a single name on the passport will be declared an inadmissible passenger by immigration if the visa has already been approved. The restriction does not, however, apply to people who have valid residency authorization or a work visa.
For instance, the authorities won’t consider a passenger’s application for a visa if the first name section of the form has the name MOHIT but the surname section is blank, or if the first name section is blank but the surname section contains the name MOHIT.
The UAE has also enacted new immigration regulations that widen the categories for Golden Visas by introducing new entry visa types and resident permits.
