Emirates airline passengers flying to the UAE can now apply for an entry visa via their mobile devices, said a report.
The Dubai Visa Processing Centre (DVPC) mobile app, which was lauched during the third edition of VFS Global’s annual innovation workshop ‘iConnect’, allows passengers to apply for the 96-hour, 30-day or 90-day single entry visas, based on their Emirates itinerary, said a report in Gulf News.
Application may be done 58 days or even up to four international working days prior to their Emirates flight.
To use the service, passengers need to download the app, register and create a profile. Once logged in, the passenger needs to key in his or her last name and booking reference. The third step is to complete the required details and make the payment. The passenger will then receive the e-visa via his or her email once issued.
“The launch of the [DVPC] Mobile App will allow our customers in India an even more convenient way to apply and complete their entire visa process through their phones. At Emirates, we are always looking for initiatives to enhance our customers’ experience online,” said the report citing an Emirates spokesperson, clarifying that the app can be used outside India, too.
