Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama has discussed with the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE, Sheik Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan the issue of visa waiver for all Fijian passport holders entering the United Arab Emirates.
Bainimarama says this will open doors for deeper and meaningful engagements between the two countries and its people at all levels.
A total of 250 Fijian nationals are currently working and residing in the United Arab Emirates.
Bainimarama says this is a significant number in addition to the Fijian peacekeepers who serve the United Nations in the region.
Bainimarama also said he would like to see more employment opportunities for Fijians in the UAE.
In response, the Crown Prince, among other discussions, said he appreciated the Bainimarama-led government’s efforts of establishing the UAE Mission in Fiji.
