Following my Watheeqa: A true-life tale of horror post, I received several message confirming that the United Arab Emirates has indeed stopped issuing visas to all Palestinians.I’m testing this.
I applied for a visa to the UAE last week. So far, it has not been approved. The feedback I’m getting is “it’s still with immigration.” This is never good news. In the past, I used to get the visa in two working days.
I guess I will have to wait until I get a definite ‘approved/rejected’ answer. I will keep you posted.
Before I forget, I would like to thank everybody who read, tweeted and commented on the Watheeqa post. A special thanks goes to Palestine Note, Arabist, Malarky News and Arab News Blog for publishing / linking the article. I did not expect the post to be this popular. I am honored.
