DUBAI, October 31, 2018

UAE nationals can now travel to the Democratic Republic of the Congo without prior-visa arrangements, according to UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

The announcement was made following the recent signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to exempt Emirati passport holders from prior visa requirements to enter Congo.

The MoU was signed by Dr Anwar Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs in the UAE, and Jean-Claude Gakosso, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Congo.

"Today, we signed a MoU on the mutual exemption of visa requirements, as part of an initiative by HH Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, to strengthen the stature of the UAE passport," Dr Gargash said.

He added that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has been a long way in its diplomatic and consular efforts to strengthen the country’s international profile, affirming that the signing of the MoU is part of its desire to offer excellent services to the country’s citizens and consolidate the UAE’s bilateral relations with other countries, through promoting cooperation in the areas of tourism, business and investment. - TradeArabia News Service
