Dubai Visa ban: Foreign Office clarifies report

ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office on Wednesday denied reports that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government has slapped a temporary ban on issuance of visit visa for Pakistani citizens.

He said the foreign office has received no complaint in this regard and these reports circulating on social media networks are fake.

Earlier, it was reported that travel agents were informed UAE has halted the process of issuance of visa until further notice, cautioning people against booking plane tickets until withdrawal of the restriction.
