UAE : Details of entry for fully vaccinated residents

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. The National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) in a tweet shared an official statement and said that those who can return also include those who stayed abroad for over six months.

NCEMA : Passengers can apply through the website of the Federal Authority For Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and complete the vaccination application in order to get the necessary approval in addition to presenting the approved vaccination certification upon departure for the UAE.

The passengers will have to undertake a Rapid PCR test before boarding and another PCR test on the fourth and eight day of arrival while complying with all precautionary measures in place. In addition to this, a negative PCR test result, done within 48 hours before departure at an approved lab that has a QR code, should be presented before departure. Children under 16 years of age are relieved of these procedures.

The list of countries includes India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Namibia, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, Nigeria, and Afghanistan. The citizens of these countries can also fly into the UAE from September 12.
