Directorate General of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) in the UAE has launched a three-day campaign titled 'A Homeland for All' in Deira City Center to assist residents, visitors and tourists with visa-related issues.

The campaign, which runs from February 25 to 27, aims to encourage compliance with the country's entry and residence laws.

On every day of the campaign, GDRFA officials will be stationed at a stall near the centerpoint in Dera City Center from 10 am to 10 pm. Individuals with visa-related issues, such as those who have overstayed their permits or whose documents have expired, will be assisted at the stall.

Lt Col Salem Bin Ali, Director, Client Happiness Department at GDRFA, assured the people that the campaign is aimed at helping anyone with visa issues, even if they have overstayed their visa period. He emphasized that the staff will find a solution for all individuals and that people should not be afraid to approach the stand.
