Residents in Dubai can now use video conferencing services to complete their visa applications.
The new service of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs can be used if visa officers discover a missing or confusing document or require extra information from the applicant to issue the visa.
Applicants may still visit a center if they so desire.
Lt Gen Mohammed Al Marri, director general of GDRFA, stated at a press conference that the service could issue and renew all types of visas, including residency, golden and green visas, and student and visit visas.
Applicants can upload required documents or images via the chat box while conversing with the officer during the online meeting.
The service will be offered seven days a week between 8am and 6pm. It will be available to residents of the UAE as well as those residing abroad. BKM/ Expat Media
