Till recently these students and their parents who hold valid Omani visa were allowed to enter Al Ain without UAE travel documents. But recently, the UAE authorities have asked Indian schools at Al Ain to inform the students and parents from Buraimi to obtain UAE entry permits which will cost them Dh120 per month. This fee would entail a big financial burden and inconvenience for parents. The issue was brought to Bhandari's notice at a function held recently by the Muslim Educational Society in his honour.
