United Arab Emirates: Anger resurfaces among Cameroonians

The renewal of Visa remains a nightmare for Cameroonians residing in the United Arab Emirates. The news of the suspension of consular activities displeased many of them.

In a statement dated April 4, 2019, Mr. Donancier MEBOUOGUE, Consul General of Cameroon in Dubai (United Arab Emirates), indicated that the suspension was aimed at obtaining a permanent office that will remain official.

While operating from the Canal Central Hotel, Business Bay, the Consul General and his assistant received two requests (January 26th and February 2nd) for the renewal of 101 passports and the processing of official documents.

The hopes of having the passports renewed are flying away because the official office of the consulate is uncertain.

In a message recently sent to Cameroonians in Dubai, Mr. Donancien MEBOUOGUE said: "The current crisis in the English-speaking regions of Cameroon makes renewing the passport very difficult".

The protection of Cameroonians residing in the United Arab Emirates is still far from conclusive for lack of official consulate in the country.
