ABU DHABI, January 24, 2018

The UAE government yesterday (January 23) launched a new smartphone application aimed at helping Indian citizens apply for a work visa in the emirates, said a report.

The app, which was unveiled in New Delhi by Dr Ahmed Abdulrahman Al Banna, UAE Ambassador to India, will facilitate the process of completing a majority of the procedures in India, which will guarantee a work visa to the UAE without trouble, reported state news agency Wam.

It is currently available in both English and Hindi for Android platforms, while Malayalam will be added soon as a large number of job applicants are from the southern state of Kerala, it stated.
