The UAE Embassy in New Delhi, India last week issued an advisory for all those who wish to return to the United Arab Emirates and warned them about fake flight approval letters issued by scamsters.
The UAE embassy put out a tweet advising all its “visitors and clients” to only visit the official website.
“Disclaimer!! UAE Embassy India advises all its visitors & clients to visit it’s official website for any necessary information by clicking on below link: http://mofaic.gov.ae/en/missions/new-delhi Please avoid visiting suspicious sites, UAE Embassy India shall not be responsible if any damage occurs”
It may be noted that the Khaleej Times had reportedly investigated allegations of conmen using a fake website to send out flight approval letters. The report said the bogus portal had conned several travelers until July 26.
Its worth mentioning that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has allowed fully vaccinated holders of valid residence visas will be allowed to come back from 15 countries that were previously on the suspended list, starting from 12 September 2021.
“UAE allows the return of fully vaccinated (World Health Organisation-approved vaccines) holders of valid residence visas, including those who stayed abroad for over six months,” said the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA).
The decision comes in the wake of the lifting of a travel ban imposed on countries such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Namibia, Zambia, etc.
