UAE Announces Opening of tourist visas to vaccinated people from all countries-knowledgepointpk

    

 The United Arab Emirates has announced that it will resume issuing visas to all fully vaccinated tourists on Covid-19 from Monday, a month before Dubai hosts the delayed trade show Expo 2020.

The move comes amid a decline in coronavirus infection in an oil-rich country after reporting less than 1,000 cases a day last week for the first time in months.

The UAE's decision to open doors for foreign tourists was taken to "achieve sustainable recovery and economic growth", a WAM news official said on Saturday.

Those who qualify will need to be fully vaccinated with one of the Covid-19 vaccines approved by the World Health Organization, which includes AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Pfizer / BioNTech, Sinopharm and Sinovac.

"This decision applies to citizens of all countries, including those who came from previously banned countries," WAM said.

"Passengers arriving at tourist visas must [undergo] compulsory PCR testing at the airport," the court added.

While life in the country has returned to normal during the Covid epidemic, the UAE continues to enforce stricter mask-wearing laws and social abstinence.

Dubai last year was looking at the six-month Dubai Expo 2020 - which was delayed for a year by a health crisis and will now open in October - to attract millions of tourists and grow the economy.

Relying heavily on tourism, the emirate is one of the first places to open its doors to its guests, welcoming visitors in July last year, just a few months after the epidemic began.

Abu Dubai, on the other hand, has been very open to other tourists only in December.

The UAE has so far recorded more than 715,000 cases of Covid-19 infections, including 2,036 deaths.
