Now, The UAE passport has another feather as it is one of the world’s most powerful passports. The Canadian government has lifted the pre-entry visa restrictions on Emiratis traveling to that country.
Canada is the ninth country this year to lift visa restrictions for UAE nationals following countries such as China, Ireland, Burkina Faso, Uruguay, Guinea, Tonga, and Honduras. Citizens of the UAE can now obtain a visa on arrival when visiting Canada.
The UAE nationals who study or work temporarily in Canada need to apply for a study or work permit as the new rules apply only to visitors and those transiting through the country on international flights. Canada has the growing relationship with the UAE where 40,000 Canadians live and work. There are more than 150 Canadian companies that are operating and doing business in the UAE as well.
However, UAE citizens will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) to fly to or transit through a Canadian airport. The eTA allows Canadian officials to screen travelers for admissibility before they board their flight to Canada. This decision is based on an evaluation of the UAE over Canada’s visa policy criteria. The evaluation discloses that UAE meets Canada’s criteria for visa exemption.s
