The UAE announced, a little while ago, this morning, that it will officially allow the return of holders of valid residence permits from countries from which entry was previously prohibited, provided that they have obtained the anti-Coronavirus vaccine, according to what the Emirates News Agency "WAM" reported.

This decision includes residents of the concerned countries, even if the holder exceeds a period of 6 months outside the Emirates.

The Emirates News Agency added that the decision will enter into force on Sunday 12 September.

The decision includes the nationals of each of the following countries: India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Armenia, Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, South Africa, Nigeria and Afghanistan.

In detail, the National Authority for Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management in the Emirates stated via a tweet on Twitter that residency holders wishing to return to the Emirates must submit an application on the website of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, with the need to present certified vaccination certificates upon departure.

They are also required to submit a negative PCR test result within 48 hours of departure, in addition to conducting a quick laboratory test before boarding the plane.

Arrivals are obligated to undergo laboratory tests upon arrival in the UAE and on the fourth and eighth days, with the exception of those under 16 years of age.
