From June 23, select categories of UAE citizens and residents will be permitted to travel abroad to certain destinations, according to a joint announcement by the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management (NCEMA), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MOFAIC), and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA).
The categories of people along with the approved destinations will be announced at a later date, according to the statement.
The announcement was highlighted “as a new step towards the gradual return to normal life.”
Additionally, the UAE will facilitate travel in line with all the appropriate precautionary and preventative measures in the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The guidelines and procedures for travellers that will be announced soon should be followed strictly by both UAE citizens and residents, before their travel, during their stay abroad, and after they return to the UAE.
The joint statement was made in light of recent positive developments and following thorough evaluations by competent authorities, who evaluated the successful implementation of preventative measures currently in place.
