Kazakhstan citizens began to fly to the UAE more often after the elimination of visas

Mostly, the interest of Almaty and Astana citizens increased. The increase was about 15%.

The Kazakhstan tourism companies say that after the elimination of a visa regime with the United Arabic Emirates, Kazakhstan citizens started to fly to the country more often, inAlmaty.kz reports.

“It is certain that in connection to the elimination of a visa regime for Kazakhstan citizens, the inflow of tourists to the UAE increased. It is early to make statistical statements, because not too much time has passed. We can see that the interest increased, mostly among Almaty and Astana citizens. The growth was about 15%,”  the sales director of Kaztour, Balzhan Bilyalova, said.

According to her, the tourist agency does not observe the considerable switch of tourists to the independent planning of trips. The main constraint is that when booking on the website of the hotel or aggregator, mostly tourist dues and taxes, that can reflect in the final cost of the trip, are not indicated in the price.

When choosing independent planning, safety and insurance policy should not be omitted. Because, a happy trip is a safe one, tourism firms say.

Within the UAE, Kazakhstan citizen can be in the country within up to 30 days. Now, one can choose a hotel and buy a ticket for plane, that simplifies the process of a visa regime. A number of necessary procedures to pass the border control in the UAE should not be forgotten: when passing the passport control, it is necessary to present a passport to workers of the border service, to scan the retina, then the data will be introduced into the base. In the future, the passage of passport control can be done with the help of E-Gate without the participation of workers of the border control.
