Abu Dhabi: The UAE federal authorities have further relaxed regulations governing visit visas.

Under the new regulations, visitors are authorised to renew their visit visas without having to leave the country – providing they don’t exceed a six-month stay.

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) government communication director Lieutenant-Colonel Ahmed Al Dalal urged applicants to use the FAIC smart applications without the need to visit the customer service centre.

The UAE Cabinet recently approved new regulations, granting a sixth-month stay for five-year tourist visa holders, Al Bayan reported.
