Germany pledges to support Emiratis’ visa-free travel to Europe

_____

Germany has repeated its pledge to push for visa-free travel for Emiratis to Europe.

Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle reiterated the pledge, saying that allowing Emiratis to travel freely to Germany would benefit both regions, since they had already worked together extensively on business and trade.

Germany, along with Austria and Belgium, initially opposed any change to the visa rules for the UAE, but Schengen countries have been compiling reports on the economic, political and mutual benefits of a visa waiver for UAE citizens since last year, and came to the realisation that a visa-free travel would be beneficial for both sides.

Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, said that the relationship between Germany and the UAE was fruitful, mutually beneficial and highly diversified, ranging from economic aspects to cultural and political ones.

Sheikh Abdullah thanked Germany for its support in welcoming UAE nationals, who often travelled to the country for reasons related to business, tourism, as well as medical care.

There are 12,000 working German nationals and 900 German companies in the UAE, all of which contribute to the emirates’ continuous development and growth.
