Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Wednesday inaugurated a UAE Consulate here.
Persons from south India who wish to visit the United Arab Emirates will now get their necessary documents processed at the new mission, to be headed by Consular General Jamal Hussein Al Zabi.
The UAE government decided to set up the office here as a significant majority of Indian expatriates in the UAE hails from Kerala.
Currently, all those proceeding to the UAE from south India have to get their educational certificates and other documents certified by the UAE embassy in New Delhi or consulate in Mumbai.
