Thousands of Indians return to UAE before midnight flight suspension

Thousands of Indians returned to the UAE this weekend before flights are suspended from midnight on Saturday.

Travelers paid more than Dh4,000 – four times the normal one-way fare.

UAE authorities have said the decision covers all incoming flights from India for 10-days on national and overseas airlines.

Some categories are exempt including UAE citizens and diplomats who are permitted to return as long as they adhere to quarantine and testing rules.

The India flight ban was announced Thursday after Dubai updated PCR testing rules requiring a negative test result no more than 48 hours before travel.
