Countries worldwide may have eased travel restrictions, but continue to implement precautionary measures to avoid a resurgence of Covid-19 cases.

However, with a notable reduction in the number of Covid-19 infections, several countries have now removed the quarantining period generally mandated upon inbound passengers arriving from select locations. Instead, authorities now request for a valid proof of a negative PCR test, taken no more than 96 hours prior to arrival into the destination country.

Below is a list of five destinations that have not only shelved the quarantining requirement for UAE residents, but are also less than six hours away from Dubai via a flight.

Egypt
The shortest flight time of them all at three hours and thirty-one minutes, experience Egypt’s culture, historical monuments, and seasonal festivities on your stay.
