The UAE Vice-President on Sunday said the worst of the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

“The UAE worked as one team during the pandemic, making the country among the best globally in the fight against Covid-19,” he tweeted.

The demand for visit visas and UAE flight tickets has quadrupled a day after the country announced that it is opening its doors to tourists from all nations starting August 30.

Though bookings are not yet finalised, airfares have soared, especially for UAE flights from India, Pakistan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.

Covid-vaccinated residents in the UAE, who received their second dose of the Sinopharm jab over six months ago, must get a booster dose. Other vaccinations do not require a booster dose yet, the Government of Abu Dhabi Media Office said on Sunday.

If booster shots are needed for other vaccines, they will be updated by the Ministry of Health and Prevention or the health authorities.
