Those planning to fly Etihad from USA to India can take advantage of the free Abu Dhabi stopover program which comes with the new 48-hour free transit visa to the UAE, one of the new visa rules for Indian passport holders. The free 48-hr transit visa to Abu Dhabi and Dubai can be extended by another 48 hours at a little cost. Etihad Airways’ passengers with a confirmed onward journey are eligible for the free UAE transit visa and the free 2-day stopover in Abu Dhabi.
You can get your 48-hr transit visa to Abu Dhabi within 30 minutes from the dedicated visa counter located in the transit area of Abu Dhabi airport’s terminal 3. The 48-hour / 4-day transit visa to Abu Dhabi can be upgraded to a tourist visa at the same counter.
