No notarization needed for travel agency invitations to Dubai
Invitations or sponsorships of travel agencies issued to Dubai-bound Filipino travelers need not be notarized starting October 3, 2016, the Philippine Consulate General in Dubai said Tuesday.
In an advisory, the Consulate General said this is to give "due priority to the Bureau of Immigration's examination of the traveler's documents and determination of his/her capacity to support the travel abroad."
Foreigners who wish to enter the United Arab Emirates for personal, tourism, visit to relatives or friends, or similar reasons are required a visit visa.
The applicant for this type of visa should be sponsored by a person who is presently residing in the UAE. In the absence of a relative, a visitor can apply in any travel agencies in Dubai. —KBK, GMA News
