From now on, the UAE has instructed to ensure the return of citizens of 5 countries to travel. Airlines and travel agents in Dubai said passengers from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Nepal would have to confirm their return tickets at Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport to enter Dubai.
Earlier, hundreds of passengers from India and Pakistan were repatriated from Dubai airport due to a lack of return tickets. Those who do not follow the rules will be deported from the airport, Dubai Airlines said.
Meanwhile, India’s Indigo Airlines and Air India Express have reported that passengers traveling abroad will have to return home at their own expense if they do not have a valid return ticket.
The Pakistani consulate in Dubai said it had secured only 23 out of the 561 Pakistani passengers to stay in Dubai. 386 passengers were sent back to the country. If necessary, many have to stay at the airport, then sent home.
The Indian consulate in Dubai said 120 of the 200 passengers had been repatriated. 30 people have been allowed to enter. Most of those deported are workers from Asia and Europe.
