Dubai-based carrier Emirates has said that travel is currently not possible for passengers heading to Dubai as their final destination from five countries due to the lack of rapid PCR testing facilities at their airports.

However, all residents from these countries — namely, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Vietnam, Zambia and Indonesia — are allowed to travel to Dubai if they meet all the Covid-19 testing requirements.

The Department of Culture and Tourism – Abu Dhabi on Monday issued an updated ‘Green List’ for travel to the capital.

The new list will be effective starting September 6 (12:01am UAE time).

Starting today, September 6, the Philippine government will ease the current restrictions for passengers flying into the country from the UAE.

Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque noted that restrictions would also be eased for travellers flying in from India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Oman, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia.

The news comes as a major relief for several Filipino expats in the UAE who haven't been able to see their families for over a year now due to the pandemic.
