Embassies work with UAE government to assist citizens on ‘Amnesty’ initiative

The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (FAIC) called on Embassies and Diplomatic Missions in the UAE to cooperate with them in implementing the 90-day ‘Protect Yourself by Modifying Your Status’ initiative, which began on Wednesday reported the UAE National Daily Gulf News.

“Embassy officials should help spread the word on the visa amnesty initiative to their people and also explain to them its benefits and the need to fully cooperate with the authority in its efforts to legalise their status and stay peacefully in the country,” said Brigadier Saeed Rakan Al Rashidi, Faic director of Residence Affairs.

In Dubai, a special help desk manned by consular staff and community workers at the two amnesty tents (for men and women) set up at the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) office in Al Aweer.

Visible at the GDRFA were representatives from India, Pakistan, Kenya, China, Bangladesh and the Philippines.
