Dubai to reopen to tourists on July 7


Dubai, the largest city in the United Arab Emirates, has confirmed it will allow foreign visitors to enter from July 7th, according to a statement from the Government of Dubai.

All tourists coming into the emirate, will be subjected to thermal screenings. If a traveler is suspected to have COVID-19 symptoms, Dubai airports have the right to re-test to ensure the tourist is free of the virus.

Visitors must comply with preventive measures and safety procedures and must self-isolate for 14 days if they test positive.

Citizens and residents would be permitted to travel abroad from Tuesday June 23rd, the statement added.

“The new announcement will allow thousands of people affected by the worldwide restrictions in passenger air traffic since the start of the pandemic to resume their travel plans,” the Dubai media office said.

It also said that international health insurance, Covid-19 tests and a completed health declaration form were mandatory for tourists visiting Dubai.

The announcement comes more than two months since the United Arab Emirates introduced strict measures to curb the spread of the new coronavirus.

In recent weeks, many of those restrictions have been eased, allowing the resumption of a few flights, while domestic restrictions such as the closure of shopping centres have been lifted and private businesses have reopened.

Last week, the UAE allowed citizens and residents to travel to countries deemed low-risk for catching the coronavirus.
