Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) scheme:

The UK government has recently introduced the Electronic Travel Authorisation (ETA) scheme, which will be rolled out for all GCC nations, including the UAE, from January 2023. Under this scheme, UAE citizens will no longer require a visa to travel to the UK from 2023; instead, they can apply for an ETA online before their scheduled travel date.

The ETA scheme has been launched for all eligible countries to facilitate smooth and easy travel access to the United Kingdom. Before the introduction of ETAs in 2023, travellers from UAE may continue to use the Electronic Visa Waivers (EVW), which can be completed online before departure to the UK.
