Dubai visit visa on your mobile-- DNRD

Dubai’s Naturalisation and Residency Department (DNRD) says its mobile application will soon enable residents to apply for a visa using their mobile phones.

Major-General Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, Director-General of the Directorate told  that certain services of the DNRD have been operational on the e- platform for quite a while now.

Col Khalid Nasser Al Razouqi, Assistant Director-General of e-Service at DNRD who conducted the briefing about the new mobile application said the app is being implemented in two phases.

In the first phase, users will only be allowed to renew and cancel visas.

The second phase will incorporate more extensive services like incorporating the complete visa application process through the mobile app and thereby totally avoiding the typing centre.

The  app is being developed by Emartech. ‘Naqadi’ the payment gateway built and managed by Emartech will be incorporated into the application to manage visa payments and other fees and charges of DNRD.

According to Al Razouqi the application should be completely up and running incorporating all features by the end of next year.
