UAE bans citizens from flying to India, Pakistan, other countries

The UAE has prohibited its citizens from travelling to the countries the UAE has banned entry from recently. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) have announced that the UAE citizens are prohibited from travelling to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Namibia, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, and Nigeria. Exempt from the decision are the UAE diplomatic missions in the aforementioned countries; emergency treatment cases; official delegations; and previously authorised business and technical delegates. In a joint statement marking the commencement of the peak travel season which coincides with the exceptional circumstances the world is going through currently due to Covid-19 pandemic, the ministry and the NCEMA underlined the need for the UAE citizens to comply with all precautionary measures in general, particularly the Covid-19 countermeasures, and all other preventative protocols in place in their countries of destination. The two entities also emphasised on the need for the UAE citizens to adhere to self-isolation should they get Covid-19 positive during their travel, and to ensure compliance with all instructions, requirements and health protocols applied by their host countries.
