DUBAI // An improved UK electronic visa waiver system will begin operation on Monday, making travel to the country easier from the UAE.
The Electronic Visa Waiver II (EVW II) means Emirati passport holders can travel to the UK for up to six months for business and tourism without having to obtain a visa.
Travellers need to fill in an online form at least 48 hours before departure.
The new EVW form requires passengers to upload a copy of their passport biographic data page so that details can be checked for accuracy prior to travel.
There is an administrative fee of Dh80.
