More UAE residents stranded in six countries from where passenger entry is suspended can return to the emirates, authorities announced on Tuesday.
Expats with valid residency visas who have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in the UAE are among the new categories that will be allowed to travel to the UAE from August 5. They must have received the second vaccine dose at least 14 days prior to travel and hold a certificate that proves this.
This is among a string of exemptions announced by the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA). The exemptions are applicable to travellers from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Nigeria and Uganda.
