ONCE AGAIN, the UAE will be issuing tourist visas to travelers from all countries, provided they are fully vaccinated with one of the World Health Organization (WHO)-approved COVID-19 vaccines. However, the decision applies to citizens globally, including those previously banned or red-listed countries. At the same time, all passengers will still take mandatory rapid PCR tests at the airport who arrive on tourist visas.
UAE is issuing tourist visas to vaccinated travelers from August 30th.
In a tweet, the UAE embassy in Pakistan said the decision to issue tourist visas included countries where they had previously been barred from entering. In addition, according to Gulf News, fully immunized visitors can register their immunization certificates via the ICA or Al Hosn App platform to enjoy the benefits offered to vaccinated people.
The initiative aligns with the UAE’s strategy, which aims to balance public health and various key sectors and support national efforts to achieve sustainable economic recovery and revive the financial sector.
