Over the past few months, we’ve seen a boom in the number of countries that are offering Visa-free travel for UAE Passport holders. And it looks like UAE is returning the favour. Starting on February 1st, 2024 UAE is making dreams come true for the people of the Republic of Armenia by creating a visa-free journey for them into our country. So, if you’re from Armenia, listen up close as I tell you everything you need to know.
Armenia-UAE Friendship: A Two-Way Street
Last year, Armenia announced that UAE passport holders would be offered visa-free entry for up to 180 days within a year, fostering stronger ties and creating a cultural exchange like never before. This isn’t just about visa exemptions; with the latest move by the UAE, we have now entered into a new era of cooperation between Armenia and us. The elimination of barriers opens the door wide for endless opportunities in tourism and growth. Sisian Boghossian, the Head of the Tourism Committee of Armenia, shares the excitement, expressing optimism about more countries joining the visa-free travel movement.
So, mark your calendars for February 1, 2024, as the day when citizens of the Republic of Armenia can travel to the UAE without the fuss of entry visas. Just ensure your passport is good to go for at least six months, and you’re set for a maximum stay of 90 days within each 180-day period.
