The Kerala government today said necessary steps would be taken to bring back home Malayalis who opt for the visa amnesty scheme announced by the UAE government.

Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said that as per the announcement, the expatriates can apply for the amnesty for a three month period from August 1 to October 31.

The UAE government has made arrangements for the amnesty procedures in nine centres, he said here in a statement.

The Non-Resident Keralites Affairs (NORKA), the state government agency to redress the grievances of NRKs, would take steps to bring back all those who return under the scheme free of cost, Vijayan said. "The first group is expected to reach home by mid-August.

The government has already made arrangements to collect the information of those who avail necessary clearance under the scheme," he said. The Chief Minister also urged the NRK community in UAE to cooperate with the state government in its efforts.
