Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, Thursday 27 October, 2022 The attention of the Sierra Leone Embassy in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has been drawn to social media reports claiming that the UAE Government has issued a visa ban on Sierra Leoneans and several other African nationals. The Embassy wishes to state that it has NOT received any information on same from official sources in the UAE and therefore considers the said report being circulated asfalse and misleading.
Meanwhile, the UAE has recently introduced series of visa reforms, including but not limited to the reduction of the duration of tourist visas from three months to two months. Other new criteria for entry into the country can be found on the UAE Federal Authority for Identity, Citizenship, Customs & Port Security portal: www.icp.gov.ae
Consequently, we encourage all Sierra Leoneans planning to visit the UAE on
tourism or business purposes to go ahead with their visa applications as planned.
The Embassy would provide additional details on this issue if there is any
