Amid India’s ongoing negotiation with foreign countries over Vande Bharat Mission flights, the UAE, it has been learnt, will allow some flights to be operated from India for Indians with valid residency or work permit for the UAE.
“The problem is not in the UAE. The problem actually, or the point, is in India. India has not opened up its airports. They do not allow the foreign carriers to fly into India,” UAE ambassador Ahmed Al Banna has recently said.
“Hopefully, very soon, we will be able to overcome that and there will be some operations dedicated to those Indians, who are in India with valid residency and work permit and ICA (Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship) approval and COVID-19 PCR test, to be able to travel from India to the UAE,” he added.
