Why is OK to Board required?
Typically, if an airline lets a passenger without a valid visa and OTB to board a flight, they will be fined by the authorities in the UAE, and will also be made to bear the cost of repatriating the offender. To combat this, airline check-in staff ensures that the passenger has a valid passport and visa prior to issuing a boarding pass.
What is OK to Board (OTB)?
Ok to Board is a verification procedure undertaken by the airline to check the authenticity of your UAE visa. OTB is a message entered in the airline’s reservation system against your PNR number. It means that your paper-based visa (one that is not stamped in the passport) has been inspected and validated, and that airline check-in staff can issue you a boarding pass and allow you to board the flight.
