The UAE has resumed issuing entry permits except for work permits starting from September 24, authorities have announced. 

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) on Thursday morning said the resumption of issuing visas is within the framework of easing restrictions and strengthening the country’s efforts towards supporting recovery plans of the country’s economy.

The FAIC had on March 17 suspended all visas to all foreigners, with the exception of diplomatic passport holders as a precautionary measure to prevent and contain the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.
