    Good gesture by the Indian government for the faculty of visa-on-arrival for UAE nationals. Many of them will take this advantage and tourism will increase. Some of the readers want the UAE government to give such facility to Indian nationals which will never happen. Many of them who go there as tourists will never return.

    India is bending to other countries easily, while it never fights for same treatment for Indians in other countries, contrary to what Modi claims in his Bhashans whenever he shouts from foreign soil.

    Same facility should be extended by UAE to Indian nationals with similar conditions.

    Treat us like you treat Europeans, US and similar countries. In fact Indians have contributed a lot for the growth of UAE economy.

    Indians should not misuse this facility if extended.

    Why UAE not giving Visa on arrival to Indians like they have for Europeans or Americans?
    With 5 trillion economy and india being greatest nation on earth with zero unemployment, entire world should gladly give us visa free entry. We are not Pakistan or Afghanistan.

    Unlike other GCC countries business visas for Indians are easily issued by UAE embassy / consulate in India.

    Thousands of UAE nationals visit India for tourism and medical treatment. The law is introduced to ease burden on the embassy and consulate.
