Things to know about Ok to Board

in order to be consented for travel, some airlines necessitate passengers, especially traveling from countries in Asian Subcontinent, to have an ‘Ok to Board’ approval. This is mainly mandatory for travelers visiting Dubai, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, and whose visa being issued as well as sponsored in the UAE.

These FAQs by www.dubaivisaservice.com will precisely clear all your concerns and queries on Ok to Board. Not only these, we’ll take this a step further by offering you cost-effective services to help you obtain Ok to Board without any hassle.

1. What actually is Ok to Board? 
Ok to Board – abbreviated as OTB – simply denotes a minor check conducted by your airline service provider to ensure that you carry all travel essentials for your visit to the UAE, such as visa, passport, and return ticket. Al though it has nothing to do with immigration procedures or approval of your visa, failing to procure an OTB may sometimes encumber your travel to the UAE, as some airlines refuse to board passengers who do not have their PNR stamped with OTB message.

2. What is the main purpose behind the getting of Ok to Board? 
Your airline mandates you to update OTB message on PNR primarily to confirm the legitimacy of your visa as well as other relevant travel documents, thereby eliminating the chances of travelers making entry to the country with a forged visa and subsequently getting deported by the UAE immigration.

3. What are the procedures to obtain Ok to Board? 
Once your UAE visa is approved, your sponsor should send a copy of your valid visa and airline ticket to the airline office. They will verify all relevant details and accordingly update OTB message on your airline PNR. When you apply your visa  www.dubaivisaservice.com can take care of this procedure for you. But we’ll require you to forward us the copy of your return flight ticket. Please refer to our visa terms and conditions for further details.

4. Should I apply for Ok to Board within any prescribed time limit? 
While this depends on the terms and conditions of airline you choose to fly with, we advise you to forward all documents relevant for the updating of OTB at least three days before your prospective travel date. This will give sufficient time for your airline service provider to update OTB in your PNR.

5. How will I know if my OTB is updated or not? 
At most, your airline would electronically update it in your PNR. You can also directly call your respective airline to know about your OTB status. Alternatively, if it is done through www.dubaivisaservice.com, our visa consultants assure to update you about this at least 48 hours before your intended travel.

6. What if my OTB status is not updated? 
In such circumstances, your airline has the complete right to disapprove your boarding. To resolve this issue at the earliest, don’t delay to get in touch with our experts.
