GCC tourism could benefit from single visa: study

The GCC chambers unions has said a single GCC entry visa will help boost the number of tourists in the region and will reinvigorate tourism as a sector, Saudi Gazette has reported. "The move will reinvigorate the tourism sector amid expectations that the GCC countries will invest around $380bn (Dhs1.395bn) in tourism projects by 2018," said Abdul Raheem Hassan Naqi, the secretary general of the GCC chambers unions. "We understand the specificities of some countries, but we look at the overall benefits of Gulf tourism and its economic contributions to each of the member states. Tourism remains a factor for local economies and jobs and all efforts should be channelled into doing away with complications," he said.
