200 Israeli Passengers Were Temporarily Denied Entry At DXB Due To Visa Confusions
According to The Jerusalem Post, 200 Dubai-bound Israeli passengers were held up at the DXB airport as a result of visa entry issues.
Passengers first complained of this incident on Sunday, December 5 when Israeli passengers were temporarily denied entry into Dubai and were detained in the airport “due to a change in visa regulations forbidding them from entering.”
Passengers with non-Israeli citizenship were allowed into the country. The passengers with Israeli citizenship were allowed into the country after filling out an E-visa form.
To ensure a comfortable and smooth stay, DXB officers were able to swiftly solve the visa issue for most tourists.
