New Dubai travel guidelines issued for tourists, airlines

Dubai Airports has told airlines that they would have to repatriate tourists who would arrive in the UAE without a confirmed return ticket, according to a circular issued today, October 15. The advisory comes after several passengers from South Asian countries got stranded at Dubai International Airport on Wednesday and Thursday because they failed to meet the entry requirements.

The circular, a copy of which Khaleej Times has seen, said: "Passengers with visit and tourist visas arriving (in) Dubai without a return ticket will be not be permitted entry, and it is the sole responsibility of the airline to arrange and cover the cost of a ticket/ flight to return their passenger to the country of origin."
