Which vaccinated travelers can travel to the UAE now?
Visitors from prohibited countries
Dubai, which had previously excluded all passengers from the COVID-19 hotspots of India, Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Uganda & nbsp; has now eased its restrictions for vaccinated travelers, provided they have obtained prior entry & nbsp; approval of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA ) and, if they reside in Dubai, & nbsp; General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA).
Starting August 5, a special grant was awarded to fully vaccinated residents inoculated in the UAE, healthcare workers, humanitarian cases, and those employed in federal and local government agencies.
