Authorities in the UAE confirmed that starting August 30, the country will start receiving applications for tourist visas of individuals from all countries, provided that the applicants have received a WHO-approved Covid-19 vaccine.

The decision applies to citizens of all countries, including those arriving from previously banned countries.

Arriving passengers on tourist visa must take mandatory rapid PCR test at the airport. The previous rules for unvaccinated, including exempted categories, remain in place.

The announcement was made late on Saturday night by the Federal Authority For Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), and reported by the state-run news agency WAM too.

Travellers wishing to receive the benefits provided to individuals vaccinated in the UAE can register their vaccination via the ICA platform or Al Hosn application.
