Global Village collaborating with GDRFA Dubai to ease visa procedures


Global Village is collaborating with Dubai's General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA-Dubai) to facilitate visa processing for exhibitors and partners ahead of Season 25.

It's part of the multicultural family destination's comprehensive strategy to ensure smooth operations and secure services.

The partnership also supports the leadership’s vision to rebuild the emirate’s entertainment scene following recent events.

GDRFA-Dubai is working closely with the Global Village Partnership Happiness Centre team to clear the way for the arrival of international partners and their teams.

Ali AlSuwaidi, Chief Operating Officer at Global Village, said: "We are committed to enabling and assisting our partners from around the world and welcoming them to Dubai with true Emirati hospitality. These same principles inspire us to build bridges of cooperation, drive cultural diversity, and provide opportunities for foreign investors to enter the UAE market and discover the many business opportunities here."

Visa applications for Global Village participants can be submitted through its Partner Happiness Centre, which provides an easy-to-use online portal.

The family destination is gearing up for the launch of its Silver Jubilee season on October 25. It has already been awarded the Dubai Assured Stamp for its stringent safety and security protocols.
