Job seekers in UAE express worry over suspension of visit visas

-

- Advertisment -

Job seekers in the UAE have expressed worry as the local government imposed complete suspension of visa issuance in light of coronavirus outbreak.

The suspension includes all entry visas except for those holders of diplomatic passports. This will be effective starting March 17.

“Nakaka-bahala kasi patapos na visa ko next month tapos yung suspension walang na-mention na kung hanggang kailan,” a Facebook user wrote.

Other people on visit visa cannot also go back to their countries as they’re on lockdown.

“We just don’t know how are we going to survive with this. This news just broke me–I came here to get a work and now that UAE is suspending issuance of all visas, I just think I am paralyzed with this. I don’t have money to rush and renew a visa, I just renewed mine last month. Now, I am just hoping this suspension will be lifted before the expiry date of my visa,” a Filipino on visit visa exclusively speaks with TGFM.

This decision will not just affect job seekers who are on visit visas but also travel agencies.
