The United Arab Emirates said citizens and residents will be permitted to travel to countries that are considered to be low-risk for catching the coronavirus from next Tuesday June 23.
Saif Al Dhaheri, the spokesman for the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, told reporters, that Prospective travelers must test negative for COVID-19 and be prepared to be quarantine on their return to the UAE for up to 14 days.
Airport authorities will check travelers for symptoms. Those with a fever or showing respiratory problems will be isolated and barred from travel, he said.
Even though Dhaheri did not give a list of countries for each risk category but the emphasis was made that all travel to high-risk countries would remain banned.
Travel to medium-risk countries would be allowed on a case-by-case basis, for people seeking health treatment, visiting immediate family or those on military, diplomatic, or official business.
