Starting August 30, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) will accept tourist visa applications from all countries. Tourists will need to be vaccinated with one of the Covid-19 vaccine injections recommended by the World Health Organization, according to the new UAE travel requirements.
Citizens of all countries, including those from previously prohibited countries, are affected by the ruling. Furthermore, travelers with tourist visas must perform a required quick PCR test upon arrival at the airport. Passengers must also use the government's health app to record their immunization status. Travelers who want to take advantage of the privileges available to individuals who have been vaccinated in the UAE can do so using the ICA platform or the Al Hosn app. According to the new UAE travel guideline, all regulations for unvaccinated travelers, including exempted groups, remain in effect.
Since banning visitors from India, Pakistan, and Nigeria, the UAE has been gradually loosening travel restrictions. Residents of the country's largest cities, Abu Dhabi and Dubai, were allowed to return earlier this month.
