We had secured UAE tourist visa for our son on July 29, but even then we have not been able to get him back to the UAE as yet.
We had booked a flight, sought approval from the Bureau of Immigration in India and Foreigner Regional Registration Offices, who replied stating there is no issue from their end and it is up to the airlines to decide on who to fly. We are simply running from pillar to post.
We have tried contacting the CGI Dubai as well through their helpline and Twitter, but it hasn't been of any help.
Surprisingly, the crew for Bollywood web series 7th Sense has been allowed to land in Dubai for shooting, but many children like our son remain stranded in India due to no approval for visit visa/tourist visas holder.
