In particular, he emphasized that visitors to the country whose visa expires on March 1 may remain legally in the country or return to UAE in a few months if they are abroad, the visa period has been extended until December 2020. This applies to all types of visas, including residency visas, as well as entry permits, Emirates ID cards were also mentioned.
