As the UAE updates its latest travel rules and restrictions related to COVID-19 there are a number of developments and updates to take into consideration when travelling this long weekend.


The UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority on Tuesday 10th August announced revised guidelines for travellers who wish to fly into the country.


Residents and tourists who have taken Covid-19 vaccines approved by the UAE abroad can now register their details and vaccination certificates with authorities here, allowing them to easily travel into the country.



From 15th August visitors arriving should register on the ICA app and website where they will be required to share their passport details and vaccination certificate if they wish to enjoy the benefits for those who have been fully vaccinated. All accredited vaccine certificates can be found on the AlHosn app.


UAE Residents will no longer be required to show a vaccination certificate on arrival but a negative PCR test is still required.
