UAE extends travel ban for Indians amid strict COVID-19 guidelines

United Arab Emirates (UAE) has reportedly extended travel ban for individuals travelling from India and several other south Asian countries on the pretext of COVID-19 guidelines. As reported by Etihad Airlines, the ban will be followed till 31st July. Although, other airlines claim that the move awaits government review.

Reportedly, under this extended travel ban, exemptions will be given to UAE residents, ambassadors, or those holding the nation's stockholder visa. It will also exclude fully vaccinated visitors with a residency permit who have completed three tests since 23rd June.

Although, people who do not fall under this bracket & wish to conduct business or travel for vacation to UAE must wait for some time as the restrictions are lifted.

Expats in India have been in ambiguity since April, with many being pushed to reassess their options. The need for alternative solutions has grown more evident than ever, especially for people with limited mobility, posing a danger to business and family safety.

Since the pandemic began, there has been a surge in interest in second citizenship as a strategy for diversifying assets and providing wellbeing during times of uncertainty.

According to reports, up to 5,000 high-net-worth Indians have emigrated since the year 2020. In addition, there has been a surge in interest in CBI (Citizenship by Investment), a procedure that gives citizenship to an applicant and their dependents in exchange for making a financial commitment to a host country.

CEO of CS Global Partners, Micha Emmett, stated that as governments put strict visa rules, the ability to travel and do business abroad is significantly limited. On the other hand, Citizenship by Investment is a fantastic approach to counteract this trend, as it provides Indian citizens with greater access to travel and economic opportunities.
