UAE Allows Only These Indians To Travel Into Their Country From Sep 12 (Full Details)
The world that we lived in prior to March 2020, kind of seems like a distant past. The tiny but mighty novel coronavirus brought the world to a standstill. It forced nations to close their borders. But with the advent of vaccinations all over the world, we might just be seeing the end of the tunnel. To some extent, we might just be coming back to normal. And UAE opening up to some of the nations in the world might just be the sign of it.
UAE opens its doors for people from India and 14 other countries
On Friday, The United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced its decision to lift restrictions on entry for residents who have been fully vaccinated. The decision will be implemented from September 12. It should be noted that people should be vaccinated with a shot approved by the World Health Organization (WHO).
The list of countries also includes Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Namibia, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, Nigeria, and Afghanistan. The citizens of these countries can also fly into the UAE from September 12.
UAE gearing up for Expo 2020 World Fair
For nearly a decade Dubai has been preparing for its ambitious Expo 2020 World Fair. It was kind of shaken by the pandemic. But, now as we move to normal UAE is gearing up for the World Fair with a new zeal. The Expo 2020 World Fair will be inaugurated on October 1.
The regional business and tourism hub, UAE is betting high on the Expo 2020 World Fair to give its economy a boost. The organizers are hopeful that the remaining flight restrictions imposed by the government will be lifted in time for Expo 2020.
While organizers are preparing in full swing for the expo, the government is still taking cautious steps. The UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority took to Twitter and said that approval needs to be sought from the government. It also said that various PCR tests will be conducted before entering the country.
Still, all in all, this looks like a good move for all the stakeholders in the ecosystem, doesn’t it?
