UAE stops issuing visas to citizens of 13 mostly Muslim states

The United Arab Emirates has stopped issuing new visas to citizens of 13 mostly Muslim-majority countries, including Pakistan, Iran and Syria, Reuters reported quoting a document issued by a state-owned business park.

A source briefed on the matter told Reuters the visas had temporarily stopped being issued to Afghans, Pakistanis and citizens of several other countries over security concerns, but did not provide details of those concerns.

The ban also applies to citizens of Algeria, Kenya, Iraq, Lebanon, Tunisia and Turkey, it says.
