Dubai Will Be Opening Its Borders To Tourists In July With New Air Travel Guidelines
Soon tourists will be able to visit Dubai again, after locking down the city for a month to stop the spread of COVID-19.
On July 7th, travelers will be able to enter the most populous city in the United Arab Emirates for the first time since travel restrictions were enforced.
The Dubai Media Office said on Sunday, “Tourists [will be] required to present recent COVID-19 negative certificate or undergo testing at Dubai airports.”
Residents are now also allowed to return to the city after being stuck abroad. According to tweets by the Dubai Media Office, citizens and residents of Dubai can resume outbound travel on June 23rd.
The media office also released new air travel guidelines for tourists, citizens and residents of Dubai.
In addition to the lockdown, Emirates airline suspended passenger flights and delayed events such as the Expo 2020.
There have been lower reported numbers of positive COVID-19 test results in the past weeks, a result of the government’s aide in providing more tests and thoroughly sterilizing its cities.
The United Arab Emirates has recorded almost 50,000 COVID-19 cases and 302 deaths.
