They should, instead, make use of the various electronic platforms offered by the Consulate without having to physically visit the office,” the mission said in the advisory posted on social media.

Being the largest expatriate community, it said, it is the responsibility of all the Indian nationals residing in the UAE to strictly comply with COVID preventive measures and guidelines issued by the UAE health authorities from time to time such as wearing face masks at all times, maintaining social distancing, avoiding public gatherings etc.
