UAE has resumed issuance of new visas on 24 September after a long period of suspension, news published by Gulf News and Khaleej Times. The federal authority for identity and citizenship has restarted issuance of new visas but this is limited to entry permits only. It means, foreigners outside UAE can get new entry permits only which includes visitor/tourist visas.
The work permit service has not yet resumed outside UAE which means foreigners cannot apply work permit in their home country. However, work permits are being granted to those who are already in UAE or enter UAE in future.
Dubai visit visa service has been reopened since July, a large number of tourists have already applied for visas. However, this number will increased now and tourist will be able to get visas for all states of UAE besides Dubai.
