Travel Ban, UAE

As the 10-day-long travel ban for travellers from India to the UAE comes to a conclusion, the General Authority of Civil Aviation and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority has decided to extend the ban further, with no end date announced. The travel ban is effectively indefinite, with the safety requirements for excempted passengers ramped up. The notification also extends it to the individuals who were in India in the 14-day period prior to arrival in the UAE. The travel bans started from April 25, 2021.

The travel to India will continue. Furthermore, UAE has ramped up safety requirements for  excempted travellers, which include UAE Citizens, diplomatic missions accredited by the two countries, official delegations, those traveling on business planes, and golden residence holders, including a ten day long quarantine and a PCR test, of which the testing period brought down from 72 to 48 hours.

Also, if you are planning to travel to the UAE via another country, you may be required to provide proof of stay for a minimum of 14 days. However, cargo flights shall continue to operate. As extension is being implemented as India continues to reel under the grip of the second wave of COVID-19. While implementing the extension of travel ban, UAE has expressed their solidarity and condolences in the backdrop of the rapid surge in COVID-19 victims in India.
