Dubai eases travel curbs on some countries excluding Pakistan

DUBAI: Dubai has allowed holders of UAE residency visas stuck outside the country to return from certain nations if they have received two doses of a UAE-approved vaccine.

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management in Dubai, headed by Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, announced updates to Dubai’s travel protocols for inbound passengers from South Africa, Nigeria and India, effective from Wednesday June 23, international media reported. Travel restrictions still apply on Pakistan.

With regard to travel from India, only passengers with a valid residence visa who have received two doses of a UAE-approved vaccine, are allowed to travel to Dubai. They should also present a negative test certificate from a PCR test taken 48 hours before departure.

UAE nationals are exempted from this requirement. Only QR-coded negative PCR test certificates are accepted.
