So, The Dubai Government Is Now Denying That They Banned Pakistanis From Getting Visa

By Alveena Jadoon | 20 Dec, 2017

So it was recently reported by many publications, including us, that visit visa to the Emirati party city for Pakistanis had been temporarily banned

The reason given was that a huge number (300,000 to be precise) of Pakistanis are already present in Dubai and the government can accommodate no more.

Allegedly, this news was also confirmed by Chairman Travel Agents Association Naeem Sharif. All the applications which were sent in on this Monday were rejected and the embassy was pushing people to not send in more, until later in January.


Of course, Pakistanis were going to have a meltdown about it


However those of you pointing out that it was fake news; nicely done because there are reports of Dubai Government’s statement being contrary to these reports


The government of Dubai has just confirmed that the party is still on and the news making rounds on social and mainstream media is absolutely fake

Speaking to Khaleej Times, the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs of Dubai said “Visitors from Pakistan are welcome to enter Dubai after obtaining a visa. The situation is normal.”


This Pakistani is extremely grateful that the news turned out to be fake


While some were a little pissed off at mainstream media for picking up a story without verification

The government of Dubai has asked Pakistani people not to fall prey to such rumours and send in applications if they want to visit the country during the vacations
