UAE lifts restrictions on entry of fully vaccinated residents

Last week, the UAE announced to resume tourist visas for fully vaccinated travellers. This came as the daily number of Covid-19 positive cases continued to drop in the nation, having gone lower than 1,000 since last week, reports AFP.

The UAE will lift its restrictions on entry for fully vaccinated residents from Sunday. On Friday, the United Arab Emirates said that it will allow the return of those vaccinated fully with WHO-approved Covid-19 jabs and holding valid residence visas from 15 nations previously on the suspended list, including India. Passengers from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Namibia, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, Nigeria, and Afghanistan can now enter the UAE.The decision to lift the travel ban comes as Dubai is preparing to open the Expo 2020 world fair on October 1 after a year-long delay due to the coronavirus pandemic.
