There has been a recent change in Dubai Visit Visa Rules 2022 For Pakistani Citizens. Civil Aviation Authority under the pressure by Financial Action Task Force (FATF) has issued new rules for Pakistanis Visiting UAE. This is done in order to meet the requirements by Pakistani Government and potentially exiting the FATF Grey List.
All of this change happened after receiving a query from a passenger at Dubai airport, the Consulate Staff visited the airport and found out that the UAE Immigration Authorities have stopped entry to around 80 Pakistani nationals at Dubai airport for multiple reasons. A total 40 of them have been deported to Pakistan and rest are being sent back on various available fights. Immigration authorities have cited following reasons for their deportation:
- These passengers were holding visit visas had dummy return tickets
- The passengers were unable to show enough money to sustain in UAE Most of them have reportedly informed the UAE immigration authorities that they came to UAE for employment purposes, however, they were holding visit visas.
This Mission has requested UAE Immigration authorities to allow entry to Pakistani passport holders holding valid visas into UAE, however they have conveyed that entry of these passengers were denied because of above reasons (According to official Sources).
Ministry is requested to approach MOI/FIA for the following;
a) To educate Pakistani passengers desirous of working in UAE to acquire proper work visa
b) All of them should be holding valid return tickets
c) They should be having minimum amount of AED 5000/- in cash.
After this new rule, Pakistani Citizens Visiting UAE on Visit Visa are now required to have confirmed Return Tickets and must have a minimum of AED 5000 in order to receive entry. There’s also one thing to keep in mind that it doesn’t matter which country you’re taking the flights from, if you have a Pakistani Passport, you must have return tickets and AED 5000 to gain entry into UAE.
