Emiratis to travel visa-free to Botswana

ABU DHABI // UAE citizens will no longer require pre-entry visas for Botswana, reports Wam.

The announcement was made by the UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and means that Emiratis can travel to the southern African country and stay for a maximum of 90 days without an entry visa.

The new regulations apply to UAE citizens who hold special, mission and regular passports.

Ahmed Al Dhahiri, assistant undersecretary for consular affairs at the ministry, said the decision shows the "depth of relations" between the two countries as well as the UAE's status internationally.
