Covid-19 vaccinations are no longer a prerequisite for UAE residents to return to Dubai from India, Emirates has said.

“At the moment, we’re only accepting UAE residents, with prior approval from GDRFA. The Covid-19 vaccination is no longer a requirement,” the carrier said on Twitter, in response to customer queries.

Prospective travellers were seeking clarity from the airline whether residents vaccinated with Covishield in India could return to Dubai.

The UAE had said earlier this week that it would permit the entry of select categories of travellers from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Uganda and Nigeria, effective August 5.

According to the directive, those with valid residency permits who have received all vaccination doses in the UAE, with 14 days having lapsed since the second dose, and who have vaccination certificates approved by the official authorities in the country, would be granted entry into the UAE.
