FaceTime is available only for iOS users, and not in every country. For example, it’s banned in UAE. VOIP applications are banned because they provide unlicensed Voice over Internet Protocol (VOIP) service, which is against the UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority’s (TRA) law.

FaceTime is also banned in some other Middle Eastern countries like Qatar and Jordan, for the same reason. Saudi Arabia removed a ban two years ago. iOS and iPadOS Feature Availability you can find here.
