>> UAE tourist visas: Which Covid vaccines are approved by WHO?

The UAE will receive tourists “from all countries” who have received both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organisation (WHO). This also applies to tourist visa holders from countries where travel to the UAE is restricted, authorities announced on Saturday.

The new directive is applicable from August 30, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) said in a joint statement.

They are also invited to register their vaccination certificates on the ICA website or AlHosn app in order to enjoy the same benefits that vaccinated residents in the UAE do.
