This comes as part of the country's strategy to create a balance between public health and the activities of vital sectors and support the national efforts to achieve sustainable recovery and economic growth.

The decision applies to citizens of all countries, including those arriving from the previously banned countries. Arriving passengers on a tourist visa must take a mandatory rapid PCR test at the airport. The previous rules for unvaccinated, including exempted categories, remain in place.
Travellers wishing to receive the benefits provided to individuals vaccinated in the UAE can register their vaccination via the ICA platform or Al Hosn application.
