The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs, Dubai, on Tuesday reiterated the free tourist visa facility for those under the age of 18 visiting UAE with both or either of their parents.

The scheme has been in effect from July 15 until September 15, the department said in a tweet.

UAE's visa waiver for children under 18 came into effect for the first time this summer, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) announced in July.

The UAE is known as a tourist hotspot and the visa waiver for children under 18, who are accompanying their parents to the UAE, will further boost in-bound tourism to the UAE, according to the travel and tourism industry players (detailed report).
