india to uae flights, Indians going to UAE should check passport, entry will not be given on incomplete name, big change in passport rules

Abu Dhabi : A notice has been circulated to all travel agents in UAE. In this, Air India Express has announced that passengers traveling to and from the US will have to ensure that they have their first name and surname written in their passports. Corona restrictions between India and UAE have now been completely lifted. Indians will account for the largest number of foreign travelers arriving in Dubai in the year 2022. A large number of students and workers from India travel to the UAE for studies and employment.

According to the updated guidelines, ‘No passport holder bearing the same name, first name or surname, shall be accepted in the UAE. Passengers will be treated as INAD, the term used for inadmissible passengers. The new guideline will be applicable from 21 November. For example, if a passenger’s name is written in the passport as Praveen and the surname column is blank, then visa will not be issued to such passport.

Who will get exemption from new rules?
As per the new rules, if a visa has already been issued, immigration will treat it as INAD. The circular also states that this rule will apply to those traveling on tourist or visas. But residence or employment visas will not be included in this. Dubai is becoming the first choice of foreign tourists in UAE. In the first nine months of this year, more than 10 million foreign tourists have come to Dubai, of which 10 percent are Indians.

Dubai tourism has returned
Figures from Dubai’s Department of Economy and Tourism show that 3.85 million people visited Dubai during the same period last year, compared to 10.12 million tourists this time. The figures for 2022 show a huge increase of 162.8 per cent. Even before the 2019 i.e. Corona pandemic, this figure was 12.08 million. This is a sign that Dubai’s tourism sector has made a tremendous comeback after all the corona restrictions were lifted.
