UAE - Sources in the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai have confirmed that the good conduct certificate for all nationalities is "no more a mandatory document" for visa application.
However, the move has been rolled out only in the emirate of Dubai, and the certificate will continue to be a prerequisite in other emirates across the UAE.
Khaleej Times has received a copy of a notice which has been issued to all Amer and Tasheel centres alerting residents and visitors that the good conduct certificate is not mandatory for visa application purposes.
The source also stated that this move is only temporary and will be reinstated, until further notice. Furthermore, Khaleej Times has tried to contact the media section at the GDFRA on this matter are awaiting comments on the same.
