Indian expats in UAE warned against fake repatriation circular from Indian Mission. Indian nationals are urged to not fall victim to such frauds.

UAE: Indian Missions warned expats against fake notifications and circulars regarding repatriation. The circular is said to be asking stranded exapts including people who lost the job, visit visa holders, elders, and jobless to send their personal details to the mission.

“It has come to our notice that a message is being circulated on social media asking Indians stranded in the UAE to send their personal particulars to various email IDs of the Indian Embassy. Please note no such message has been sent by the embassy,” the Indian Embassy clarified.

Meanwhile, the Indian Consulate Dubai noted that the circular was a fake one. “CGI Dubai has not issued any such advisory. Indian nationals should take note of this.”

“Expats who need medical and psychological counseling service can email to the embassy. Once we have the mobile number of the person, our team of doctors call them and address their issue,” an official from the embassy said.

Additionally, in case of emergency, expats can call 24X7 helpline number 0508995583.

While India on Tuesday extended the lockdown due to Covid-19 pandemic till May 3. On Monday, Supreme Court of India had ruled that stranded expats cannot be flown back home till travel restrictions are in place.
