ABU DHABI – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has announced that UAE nationals holding diplomatic, special and ordinary passports can now travel to the Republic of Kiribati without pre-entry visas and for stays of up to 90 days for each visit.
The decision will come into effect on October 23.
The exemption follows the Mutual Visa Waiver Agreement between the UAE and Kiribati, which was signed in September.
Khalid Abdullah Belhoul, Undersecretary of the UAE’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, said that the deal will allow UAE passport holders to enter the territory of the Republic of Kiribati without a prior visa and without fees.
Belhoul said this agreement will reflect positively on tourism, trade and investment and several other sectors which, in turn, will further promote cooperation between the two countries.
Pronounced Kiribas, Kiribati is located in the central Pacific Ocean, southwest of Hawaii. It is part of the division of the Pacific islands known as Micronesia. It is made up of 33 coral islands, with 21 of them inhabited.
One of its more popular islands is Christmas Island, which Lonely Planet said “shimmers in a haze of white sand, silver shallows and deep-blue lagoon”.
Kiribati also has the world’s largest coral atoll, making it popular with divers and fishing enthusiasts. ICA/Expat Media
