Join VisitBritain and the UK Government’s Home Office for a webinar on 13 November to find out about the new ETA scheme and why 2024 will be another ‘GREAT year’ in Britain. The ETA, launched for Qataris in October this year, will be launched for the nationals of all other GCC countries and Jordan in February 2024. It will open boundless opportunities for travellers.
VisitBritain, the national tourism board of Great Britain, and the UK Government Home Office will conduct a special webinar titled, “Visit Britain with the new Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA)” to inform about the ETA, which will replace the Electronic Visa Waiver (EVW) in Qatar from October 2023 and throughout the GCC in February 2024. The webinar will be conducted on 13 November 2023, 12pm (UAE Time).
2023 has been an important year for Britain with the coronation of His Majesty King Charles III, Liverpool hosting the Eurovision Song Contest, London’s luxury hotel boom and a year-round calendar bursting with festivals and events. 2024 is set to be another “GREAT year” in Britain – from innovative cutting-edge entertainment venues and world-class sporting events to wellness retreats and luxury hotels, there has never been a more exciting time to discover Britain’s vibrant cities and lush countryside.
Travelling to the UK is set to be even easier and more affordable for GCC nationals, with the new ETA scheme.
Launching for Qatari nationals in October 2023, followed by nationals of all other GCC nations and Jordan in February 2024, the new ETA scheme will open up boundless opportunities for travellers. For a nominal fee of only £10 per applicant, the ETA grants multiple entries to the UK over two years or until the holder’s passport expires – whichever comes first. The process to apply for the visa under the scheme is simple and ensures a seamless experience, with most applicants expected to receive a response within days or even sooner.
