UAE says Ukrainians eligible for visas on arrival, in apparent about-face

The United Arab Emirates says Ukrainian nationals are eligible for visas on arrival in the Gulf Arab state, in an apparent reversal of a decision to suspend visa waivers to them amid war in their country.

Kyiv’s embassy in the UAE had previously said that Emirati authorities had temporarily suspended the waivers as of Tuesday.

“Concerning reports on the issuance of advance visas to Ukrainian nationals to enter the UAE, HE Faisal Lutfi, Assistant Undersecretary for Consular Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has announced that Ukrainian nationals continue to be eligible for visa on arrival to the UAE,” the Emirati foreign ministry said in a statement.
