Dubai, UAE, July 07, 2018:  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has clarified the official stance of the United Arab Emirates regarding entry and residency of Qatari citizens.   

In its latest announcement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MOFAIC) has clarified the official stance of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) regarding entry and residency of Qatari citizens.  

 According to the MOFAIC’s statement, Qatari citizens who currently reside in the UAE are not required to apply for any permission to continue their residence in the country. However, they are encouraged to obtain a prior approval for re-entry into the country should they decide to depart. Qatari citizens overseas, seeking entry into the UAE must obtain entry clearance prior to travel. Approvals can be requested through a helpline set up by the UAE Government in June 2017. 
 
Additionally, the MOFAIC reaffirmed that the UAE took no action to expel Qatari citizens who remained in the country, following the expiry of a 14-day deadline referred to in the earlier announcements issued in June 2017.
