A new electronic visa waiver will be free, and can be obtained up to 48 hours before departure. It will be available online and replaces the existing time-consuming system of providing biometric information, booking an appointment at a visa application centre and handing over your passport.
The process has been approved by various committees of the European Parliament, but awaits a vote by the full parliament and the Council of Ministers, which is not expected before the middle of next year. The new visa waiver lasts for six months and is for short-term visits.
Those travelling for work or study to the UK must still apply a visa. Pathway Visas can help you with all the details. For more information call us at: +971 4 456 1304 or visit us on the web at: http://pathwayvisas.com/home/uk/
