Philippine carrier Cebu Pacific Air waives rebooking charges for international, domestic flights

UAE passengers flying with a Philippine carrier will no longer have to pay extra when they make changes to their flight bookings within 24 hours of ticket purchase.

Cebu Pacific Air, which operates flights between the UAE and the Philippines, has announced that it is waiving the rebooking charges of a little over Dh164 and Dh200 (2,300 and 2,800 pesos) on short haul and long haul international flights, respectively. The corresponding fees for domestic flights, estimated to be around Dh107 (1,500 pesos), are also being waived. The new policy, which took effect on August 1, 2017, benefits Filipino expatriates, other flyers in the UAE and other markets, as well as domestic passengers in the Philippines.

The waiver on the rebooking and cancellations fees can be availed of by customers at all booking channels – whether the tickets are booked through a travel agent, ticket office or call centre.

However, passengers are advised that they may need to pay extra money to cover any fare difference when making changes to their bookings.

The airline has also recently made some changes to its booking systems to enable passengers to secure Manila airport terminal fee or international passenger service charge exemptions when booking via the carrier’s mobile app and website.

Countries that allow UAE residents visas on arrival

Keen to go for a long weekend somewhere, but hold a passport that makes it hard to just hop to a destination without pre-planning? Well, here are some options.

UAE residents from South Africa, India, Lebanon and more will be used to the struggle to get a visa when wanting to visit a country. But, thankfully, some nearby spots allow those with UAE residency visas to bypass typical visa regulations and get a visa on arrival. Here’s a guide..

Armenia

Armenia has a special visa-waiver programme for Indian nationals with a UAE residency visa. Indians normally can only enter Armenia as diplomats or with an invitation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, however, if they have a UAE residency visa they will get a visit visa on arrival thanks to an agreement with the UAE. (A short stay visa on arrival will cost around Dhs20 according to reports.) Meanwhile, Lebanese, Jordanian and South African nationals will get a visa on arrival (as will UAE citizens). Some of those who won’t? Pakistani, Syrian, Saudi, Nepali, Sri Lankan and all other African nationalities (among others).

Georgia

While there is no Georgian consulate that you can phone in the UAE, multiple airlines and travel companies told us that all people with a UAE residency visa can enter this burgeoning tourist spot for 90 days without a visa.You will just have to show your valid residence visa upon arrival.Holders of valid visa or residence permit of UAE are exempted from visa requirements. You can enter Georgia without a visa for 90 days in any 180-day period. Please, note that you must present relevant valid visa or residence permit along with your travel document/passport at the moment of crossing Georgian border.

Azerbaijan

If you have a UAE residence visa and you’re travelling to this oil-rich nation with an Emirati national you can get a visa on arrival. If you’re travelling without a UAE citizen many nationalities will need to get a visa before your trip, but citizens of 81 countries can apply for the visa easily online.

Montenegro

There were some reports that those with UAE residency visas could visit Montenegro and get a visa on arrival, and that this would start in July 2017, but we called the Montenegro embassy and they’ve said that that agreement is now over, so you’ll need to apply for a visa to visit there now if you’re from a country that needs one

Though the above information is checked and verified, please check with the embassies about your particular circumstances before you book your non-refundable flights.

Saint Patrick’s Day – Ireland

st patricksSaint Patrick’s Day is a cultural and religious holiday celebrated on 17 March each year.  It is named after Saint Patrick, the most commonly recognized of the patron saints of Ireland.  The day commemorates Saint Patrick and the arrival of Christianity in Ireland. This day also celebrates the heritage and culture of the Irish in general. Celebrations generally involve public parades and festivals and the wearing of green attire or shamrocks. Christians also attend church services and the Lenten restrictions on eating and drinking alcohol are lifted for the day. This acts as a huge encouragement and has propagated the holiday’s tradition of alcohol consumption. However, watch out for pinches from strangers if you are not wearing green on this day!
