The changes are being implemented currently by the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship or ICA. The modified UAE Visa policy will extend entry permits for women. It benefits Widows and divorced women. The UAE Visa for students sponsored by their parents will be renewed as well.
Overseas Immigrants whose UAE Visa is about to expire, will get an extension of 30 days. They have to pay Dh600. The extension will be granted twice. The tourism industry has supported this decision. Specialists in talent and human resources said this initiative would benefit Overseas Immigrants.
Saeed Rakan Al Rashidi, acting director general at ICA was quoted as saying that these changes would help the companies in UAE. They would not have to hire workers from outside the country thus saving recruitment time and cost.
