The UAE News report: There is a big relief for UAE resident outside the country as they can come back even after six months.
UAE residents who have been outside the country for more than six months can now return by March 31, 2021.
That’s according to the website of flydubai that was updated on January 4.
All residents need is a valid resident visa and an approval from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs – Dubai (GDRFA).
In a message to passengers, the website stated: “If you hold a UAE resident visa and have stayed outside of the country for more than 180 days, you will be allowed to enter the UAE until 31 March 2021.”
In the meantime, Air India Express, the budget airline of India’s national carrier, on its Twitter account also posted: “Passengers, who have stayed outside Dubai for more than 180 days, can return within March 31, 2021.”
It added: “They should have a valid resident visa and approval from GDRFA.” This announcement to passengers is expected to bring a huge respite for several UAE residents stuck in their native countries for several months now.
