The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has denied reports circulating on social media that it has imposed a visa ban on Pakistanis.

The UAE's Consulate General, Bakheet Obaid Al-Roumi, has issued a video statement to refute the false propaganda.

According to Al-Roumi, there is no visa ban for Pakistanis, and the visa section at the UAE consulate remains open. Pakistanis are free to travel to the UAE for work visas, and there is no age limit for those seeking to enter the country.

Earlier this month on June 7, The Foreign Office expressed that movement across the Pakistan-Afghanistan border should be regulated by visas.

Spokesperson Mumtaz Zahra Baloch said that individuals wishing to enter Pakistan from Afghanistan must possess a visa and an Afghan passport. She emphasised that border movement between Pakistan and Afghanistan should be conducted under visa regulations.

Meanwhile, on March 7, Italy started visa services from the historic city of Lahore while similar facilities will also be launched very soon in other major cities of the country.

It was announced by Italian Embassy First Secretary Augusto Palmeiri while speaking at the Lahore Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI).
