UK Announces Visa-Free Entry for GCC Countries, Enhances Tourism and Business Links

In the latest news from London, the UK’s made a big move: they’re saying “no need for visas” for folks from the Gulf Cooperation Council countries. That’s Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, and Jordan. From February 22, 2024, they can just walk in, no visa needed.

But here’s the catch: they gotta get this thing called an Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA). It’s like a ticket to the UK, but digital. Qatar’s people? They’re already in the club.

This ETA isn’t free though. It costs £10 and it’s good for two years. This is part of the UK’s plan to make their borders all high-tech by 2025. They’re aiming for better security and to make things smoother for travelers.

So, what’s the big picture? This ETA stuff means Gulf state folks and Jordanians can hop over to the UK easier. It’s good for business, good for tourism. The UK’s opening its doors wide, and that’s the news!
