ICA permit must for these expats in Sharjah


SHARJAH – Abu Dhabi and Al Ain residence visa holders arriving at Sharjah International Airport must have prior approval from the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA), according to a new circular from airlines.

Air India and Air India Express announced the travel update for residents flying to Sharjah airport.

The airlines said that the new rule, effective Friday, requires residents from Abu Dhabi and Al Ain to get a green message from the ICA before flying to Sharjah.

“With immediate effect, passengers holding residence visas from Al Ain and Abu Dhabi need to have ICA approval before arriving into Sharjah,” according to an Air India circular.

Air Arabia also echoed the same message, urging passengers with residence visas issued in Ab Dhabi or Al Ain to check to verify their entry status.

Residents of other emirates who are arriving in Sharjah, except Dubai residence visa holders, are not required to get prior ICA approval. ICA/Expat Media
