The United Arab Emirates and the European Union have signed a reciprocal bilateral short-stay visa waiver agreement.

UAE citizens who hold diplomatic, special, service and ordinary passports will be able to travel without a visa to EU countries which make up the Schengen area for stays of up to 90 days (within any 180-day period of one year). Any citizen of a Schengen country can visit UAE maximum 90 days during a 180 days period.

This will mainly affect frequent visitors to UAE, typically Superintendent frequently attending Drydockings or projects, but not residents and seafarers.
