The UAE has suspended the entry of inbound travellers from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka on national and foreign flights, as well as transit passengers, effective from May 12, 2021 at 11.59pm.

Additionally, UAE citizens, diplomatic missions, official delegations, business planes and golden residence holders are excluded. They will be subject to a 10-day quarantine, testing on the fourth and eight day of entering the country as well as PCR testing at the airport. Meanwhile, the PCR testing period has been reduced from 72 to 48 hours and all tests must be administered by accredited laboratories that issue results carrying a QR code.

Also, travellers coming from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka through other countries are required to have a period of stay in those countries of not less than 14 days in order to be allowed to enter the UAE.

Meanwhile, cargo flights between the UAE and these countries will operate as usual.

Authorities have urged passengers to contact their relevant airlines to reschedule flights affected by the decision.
