Certain categories of residents stranded in six countries can travel to Dubai, the Emirate’s Civil Aviation Authority has confirmed in a notice to airlines.

They would need to get an approval from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) before flying.

The chief executive of Dubai Airports on Wednesday said they were expecting a "surge" in passenger traffic over the coming weeks and months, after the UAE announced an easing of travel restrictions from African and Asian countries, including India, Pakistan and Bangladesh among others.

As per the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), the UAE will also allow passengers from all countries to transit through its airports from August 5.

The country's airports will allocate special lounges for transit passengers with all Covid-19 precautionary measures to ensure safety of all travellers.
