As of tomorrow Estonian citizens can apply for a visa to the United Arab Emirates upon arrival in the country

21.03.2014

As of tomorrow, March 22, Estonian citizens can apply for a visitor visa to the United Arab Emirates at United Arab Emirates border checkpoints. Until now, this had to be done at an embassy prior to travel.

Foreign minister Urmas Paet said that Estonia has pursued this opportunity for its nationals for a few years. “The possibility of obtaining a visa at the border makes it easier to travel and will also be beneficial for economic relations between Estonia and the United Arab Emirates, including trade and tourism. It will also help to promote people-to-people contacts,” he added.

Starting tomorrow, March 22, the nationals of 13 European Union states can apply for a visa to the United Arab Emirates upon entering the country. In addition to Estonian nationals, the citizens of Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Hungary, Latvia, Malta, Cyprus, Croatia, Romania and Bulgaria can now apply for a visitor visa at United Arab Emirates border checkpoints.
