Singapore Embassy Appoints New Visa Processing Agency In Abu Dhabi


Omeir Travel To Facilitate Simpler Travel Procedures For Business And Leisure Travellers Visiting Singapore










Travelling to Singapore just got easier, with the appointment of a new visa processing agency in Abu Dhabi. The Singapore Embassy has appointed Omeir Travel, a leading travel agency based in Abu Dhabi, as its visa processing agency for the Emirate to ease visa applications for the growing number of UAE-based business and leisure travellers visiting Singapore. The first half of 2008 has shown that visitor numbers from the UAE to Singapore is up nearly 24 percent from 2007, proving a need for additional visa processing facilities. Omeir Travel in Abu Dhabi is the latest Singapore visa processing agency following the appointment of VSA Versatile Service Agency, Uranus Travel & Tours (LLC) and VFS Global in Dubai earlier this year. With the appointment of Omeir Travel Agency as its visa processing agency, the Singapore Embassy in Abu Dhabi will no longer accept individual walk-in applications, effective from 1 August 2008. Individuals are advised to go directly to Omeir Travel to apply for their visas. Low Pit Chen, Charge d’Affaires of the Singapore Embassy in Abu Dhabi said: "The appointment of Omeir Travel Agency as our visa agent in Abu Dhabi is another step to facilitate the fast-growing ties between Singapore and Abu Dhabi and positioning Singapore as the ideal destination for UAE travellers.” β€œThere has been a growth in the exchanges at a government-to-government level as well as deepening economic partnerships between Abu Dhabi and Singapore in the past year, especially with the opening of the Singapore Embassy in Abu Dhabi earlier this year. This is mutually beneficial to both countries and we look forward to an increase in the number of both business and leisure travellers," added Mr. Low. While UAE nationals do not need visas to visit Singapore, citizens of a range of countries across the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia require one. They are encouraged to visit the Singapore immigration website at www.ica.gov.sg for information regarding requirements and downloading of the necessary forms in connection with visa applications. Omeir Travel Agency is one of the largest travel agencies in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. Its presence in the local market dates back over 50 years and today operates an extensive network of offices offering travel related services through approximately 60 sales outlets at 40 different locations in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Dubai. Khalifa Bin Omeir, Chief Executive Officer, Omeir Travel Agency, β€œThe ties between UAE and Singapore has only strengthened in the past couple years. The move to outsource visa processing is being made to further improve the networking and movement of not only the business communities but also general traffic between the two countries. We are professionally equipped to handle this responsibility with the quality that Omeir Travel Agency is known for.”
