UAE allows return of residents with visa from June 1

The UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) said on Monday that foreign nationals holding valid residence visa can return to the UAE starting June 1.

MoFAIC and ICA in a joint statement said the decision stems from the UAE's keenness to enable those holding valid residence visas to get reunited with their families after having been affected by the precautionary measures taken under the current exceptional circumstances to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, reported Emirates news agency Wam.

"The move is aimed at streamlining their safe return to the UAE," added the statement.

In the meantime, ICA called on those holding valid residence visas and wishing to return to the UAE to register in the service entitled "Residents' Entry Permit", via its website smartservices.ica.gov.ae.
