Tourists from previously banned nations will be allowed to enter the United Arab Emirates, providing they provide confirmation of coronavirus vaccination approved by the World Health Organization.
A mandatory PCR test is required of all passengers arriving on tourist visas at the airport.
AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, Sinopharm, and Sinovac are among the Covid-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization.
The new UAE travel guideline does not change the regulations for unvaccinated passengers, including exempted groups.
A surge in coronavirus cases in April and May forced the UAE to ban passenger flights to and from countries such as India, Pakistan, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Uganda, and Nigeria.
For the UAE’s economy to recover and develop, it made the decision to reopen its borders to tourists from all over the world.
A traveler can register his or her vaccination via the ICA platform or Al Hosn application to obtain the benefits granted to UAE-vaccinated travelers.
