The United Arab Emirates has dropped visa requirements for Czech nationals. As of Saturday, the citizens of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and several other eastern European countries can travel to the Emirates without visas, saving around 2,000 crowns in fees. The move, announced earlier this month, comes in a reaction to the decision by the European Parliament to drop visa requirements for UAE citizens travelling to the EU’s Schengen zone. Around 50,000 Czechs travel to the UAE each year, according to the country’s travel agencies; some 20,000 of them travel through Dubai to other destinations.
