UAE announces visa-free travel to Armenia starting next week

The United Arab Emirates has declared a visa-free policy for citizens of the Republic of Armenia, effective February 1, 2024.

This initiative eliminates the need for entry visas and associated fees, allowing seamless entry, exit, and transit for Armenian citizens in the UAE.

Conversely, Armenia continues to offer a simplified visa process for UAE passport holders, enabling them to enjoy visa-free travel to Armenia for up to 180 days within a year. This reciprocal arrangement aims to strengthen ties between the two nations, promote cultural exchange, and facilitate more accessible travel experiences.

The implementation of visa-free travel signifies a new phase of cooperation between Armenia and the UAE, fostering opportunities for tourism and mutual growth. Sisian Boghossian, the Head of the Tourism Committee of Armenia, expressed enthusiasm about the announcement, anticipating positive developments in tourism between the two countries. He also expressed optimism that this initiative would encourage other nations to adopt similar measures, unlocking further opportunities for global tourism.

Key details of the announcement include the commencement date of February 1, 2024. Citizens of the Republic of Armenia can now travel to the UAE without the requirement of entry visas. It is essential for travelers to ensure that their passports remain valid for at least six months from the date of arrival. The maximum permitted stay duration is 90 days within each 180-day period, providing flexibility for Armenian citizens visiting the UAE.

Overall, this move reflects a commitment to enhancing bilateral relations, fostering tourism, and creating a more interconnected and accessible global landscape for citizens of Armenia and the United Arab Emirates.
