UAE exempts tourist visa fee for children below 18 years

United Arab Emirates (UAE) has exempted visa fee for children under the age of 18 visiting the Emirates as tourists. UAE cabinet on Sunday announced that this exemption will be applicable each year during the summer season i.e. July 15 to September 15. The new law has come in support of family tourism and to reduce the cost on visitors in the holiday season. 

The decision of the Cabinet goes in line with the growth of the tourism sector in the country following the exemption of transit tourists from visa fees for the first 48 hours. 

The number of passengers travelling through the country's airports reached 32.8 million during the first quarter of this year. 

The Cabinet's decision reflects the UAE's position in the global tourism sector as a prime destination attracting visitors and families from all over the world.
