According to a study from the department of culture and tourism, Abu Dhabi, Indians are second among the top three nationalities, who visit Abu Dhabi every year.

The UAE is set to grow Indian visitor numbers by more than 10 per cent by 2021, with means more than nine million Indians expected to travel to Abu Dhabi in the next three years, says research by a Colliers International, a leading commercial real estate services organisation.
