The UAE will permit citizens and residents to travel to specific destinations subject to conditions and procedures that will be declared later.
The resolution was stated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, and the National Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management Authority in light of precautionary measures against the spread of coronavirus.
The list of the allowed destinations and groups authorized to travel will be published later. Procedures will also be announced that must be adhered to before, during and after returning from travel for UAE citizens and residents.
The decision came following meticulous evaluations by the competent authorities of the successful preventative measures currently in place and the recent positive developments.
