The UAE emerged as the leading destination for Indians migrating to the Gulf. According to emigration clearance data for the first six months of 2017, the UAE has toppled, by a wide margin, Saudi Arabia which used to traditionally lead the pack. The main reason for this shift in ranking is a drastic fall in migration from UP to Saudi Arabia during the first half of 2017. Oman came a close third with 30,413 migrants, which is 16.5% of the total Gulf migration. In 2016, Kuwait was the third most popular destination.
