United Arab Emirates: The authorities of Dubai have relaxed the COVID-19 entry rules and regulations, bumping the minimum age for unvaccinated travellers who need to take a PCR test to 16.

The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Washington, D.C shared the updated guidelines, in which they noted, “Travelers to the UAE do not need to take a Covid PCR test before they travel if they are fully vaccinated, or they hold a Covid recovery certificate along with a QR code dated within about 30 days of departure, they are under 16 years of age for arrivals in Abu Dhabi as well as Dubai. They have multiple disabilities.”

The update also outlines that any traveller who does not fit into those categories “must still have a negative COVID PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours before departure, as well as a present certificate at check-in.”

Since the COVID pandemic started, the United Arab Emirates has had more than one million cases but registered a low 2,341 deaths.

Previously, youngsters aged between 13 as well as 16 without vaccines were needed to take a PCR test if they did not have proof of recovery from COVID-19. For thousands of families, it was an extra hurdle to contend with on their arrival in the nation.

Furthermore, according to a recent report, the Dubai International airport is expected to return to pre-pandemic levels by the end of next year, with about around 7.8 million fliers excepted each month by the final quarter.

Now it will be more easier for people to travel to Dubai.

On the other hand, thousands of flights by British Airways as well as other airlines have already been cancelled in recent months.

British Airlines asserted that the flights are being cancelled because of the shortage of staff to handle the number of passengers, which is reducing the number of flights.
