This approval can be obtained from the ICA website.
Residents who have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in the UAE, health workers, teachers, humanitarian cases and those employed in federal and local government agencies are the new exemptions.
These exemptions are applicable for residents stranded in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Nigeria and Uganda.
For a returnee to come under the ‘fully vaccinated’ category, 14 days must have passed after the administration of the second dose. They must also hold a certificate to this effect.
They must hold a negative result from a PCR test taken no later than 48 hours from the time of departure. The results must have a QR code.
In addition, a rapid Covid test will be conducted before they board the flight.
They must also undergo a PCR test on landing in the UAE.
The rule comes into effect from August 5, 2021. READ MORE
