  1. It was a jump start for the country to implement a new visa scheme with a 5 year visa validity. The United Arab Emirates will be hosting the Expo 2020 this year and the new visa scheme is very timely for the event to take place. Surely more tourist will benefit from the new visa validity.

  2. I agree. UAE government is always very deliberate and calculative.
