UK in discussions to boost UAE visas

The British Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates has confirmed there are on-going discussions on facilitating visa procedures for Emiratis visiting the United Kingdom.

The envoy, Dominique Jeremy, however, added that as yet no decision has been taken on offering visa on arrival facilities to Emiratis.

He expected a final decision within the next few months, Al Ittihad reported.

Jeremy said that the visit of the UAE president His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, this month to Britain at the invitation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, is a significant milestone in the history of relations between the two countries.

Britons visiting the UAE do not presently require a visa.
