The Ministry of State for Youth Affairs has agreed to link the sports federations, clubs and related institutions with the Directorate- General of Residence Affairs, an electronic link concerning the visit visa applications of players, coaches, technicians, administrators, reports Al-Rai daily.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Interior Sheikh Khalid Al-Jarrah said the issuance of visit visas is done after checking the documents and visitor data.

However, he pointed out granting visit visas for six months violates the provisions of articles (10 and 11) of the Foreigners’ Residence Law and article (5) of the executive regulations of the law. He added that the ministry spares no efforts in facilitating the issue of entry visas when the sports federations and clubs submit applications to bring in sports delegations, in line with the provisions of the Amiri Decree No. 17 of 1959 for Foreigners and Ministerial Decree No. 640 of 1987 of the Executive Regulation of the aforesaid law.

The government memorandum came from the ministries of Interior and Youth Affairs in response to a parliamentary proposal submitted by the number of deputies. Minister of State for Youth Affairs and Minister of Information Muhammad Al-Jabri said, “We do not mind the implementation of the parliamentary proposal if there is approval from the Directorate-General of Residence Affairs, and the competent authorities work on it.

The government response was based on a proposal submitted by MPs Ahmad Al-Fadhel, Hamad Al- Harshani, Dr. Khalil Abul, Faisal Al-Kandari and Khalid Al-Shatti to electronically linking sports federations, clubs and sports bodies with the General Administration of Residence Affairs to expedite the receipt and issuance of visit visas for players, coaches, technicians, administrators or referees, their agents and companions, provided that they are for a period of six months and could be extended to a similar period for one time.
