  • Suggest the MOFA Pakistan should play level playing order. Pakistan an OIC member contributed towards the development, progress of UAE. This would not mean grant of Visa but consider opportunities provided to Pakistanis after due diligence by the MOFA and the UAE authorities, have a positive/legal, sympathetic outlook to visitors, compliant.

    • Traveling agents are the culprits and airline is so stupid allowing travellers to board on plane without return tichekts . Above all our own people are so ingnorant.

  • Is quite simple, follow the rules of the country you are visiting. The airline and CAA did not comply by their rules so they were denied entry.
