Despite crisis, Lebanese free to travel to UAE - Emirati official
Lebanon News
The United Arab Emirates will not stop Lebanese from travelling to the country despite a diplomatic dispute between Beirut and Gulf Arab states, a senior Emirati official said on Tuesday.
 
Lebanon is facing a diplomatic crisis with Gulf States, spurred by a minister's critical comments about the Saudi Arabia-led intervention in Yemen that prompted Riyadh, Bahrain and Kuwait to expel Lebanon's top diplomats and recall their own envoys. The UAE withdrew its envoys.

Several Kuwait newspapers this month reported that Kuwait has suspended issuing visas to Lebanese citizens.
 
Anwar Gargash, diplomatic adviser to the UAE president, told reporters that Abu Dhabi would continue humanitarian support to Beirut and did not want Lebanese citizens to suffer more because of the country's political and economic crisis.
