The Indian Embassy in Abu Dhabi is set to offer consular services from Abu Dhabi Malayalee Samajam - the only registered Indian association functioning in the industrial area of Mussafah.
This will help thousands of blue-collar workers and families residing in Mussafah who travel to the city at present for services like passport renewal, attestation of certificates and visa-related paper works.
Embassy counsellor M. Rajamurugan said the initiative is approved, in principle, by Ambassador to the UAE Navdeep Singh Suri.
"Officials from the embassy will visit Abu Dhabi Malayalee Samajam this Sunday to see the existing infrastructure. The services will start on a monthly basis and depending on the demand, we can increase the frequency after further review."
Rajamurugan said the services will be a boon for big population spread-out in Mussafah, Shabia, Shahama, Al Mafraq, Bani Yas, Mohammed Bin Zayed City and surrounding areas. "There are lots of workers in the labour accommodations and many families are also residing there. The services will be offered on Friday. The idea is to facilitate as many workers at the labour accommodations. The services are likely to start from the month-end," he said.
Officials from BLS International, which manages passport and visa services for Indian missions in the UAE, will also visit the association on Sunday to assess the facilities.
Abu Dhabi Malayalee Samajam president Shibu Vargheese, general secretary P.K. Jayarajan and tolerance secretary Abdul Aziz Moideen said an office and volunteers were ready to assist the embassy officials.
