The UAE, apart from being a great destination in itself, is also a very popular stop over destination for those flying out to Europe or the US. A lot of people fly out to places like Dubai and Abu Dhabi for a quick weekend getaway or a super quick shopping trip. Having a multiple-entry visa is incredibly useful for these situations.

One can apply for this visa online on the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs website (GDRFA), Federal Authorities for Citizenship, Customs, Identity, and Ports Security portal or on the GDRFA Dubai Smart Application. The five-year multiple-entry visa will cost around USD 408 or INR 33,755 (approximately), not inclusive of application processing fees of INR 2252.54 (approximately).

The UAE became a federation of seven emirates – Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwain, Fujairah, and Ras Al Khaimah. Abu Dhabi is the capital city, and Dubai is one of the most visited cities in the UAE.

Indians to get UK visa in 15 days, says British High Commissioner to India

The United Kingdom on Friday announced that the visit visas for Indians travelling to the country will now be allocated within 15 working days. Referring to this, British High Commissioner to India Alex Ellis, in a video message added, “Good news for those travelling from India to UK – visit visas now within standard time of 15 working days (with a small number of trickier cases taking longer).”

However, he added that there are still a few cases which take longer, very complex ones, and that’s right that they do, further stating that this enables new people to move to India and the United Kingdom with much greater ease.

A UK Standard Visitor visa is applicable in case of visiting family or friends, vacation, business trip, or a short course of study. Then there is also this priority visa option, which now has a turnaround time of five days, the UK said, also adding that they have a big intake of student visas for the session starting in January 2023.

The High Commissioner also added that two months ago, it was their aim to get back to processing India to Great Britain visa applications within their standard time of 15 days by the end of this year, which they have now achieved.

And over the past few weeks, both countries have taken steps to ease visa issues for applicants on either side. Ellis called it ‘good news for the living bridge’, as people can move between India and the UK with much greater ease.
