According to several sources, Dubai is opening its doors for tourists again from the 7th of July. It has been over two months since the country had banned the entry of foreigners. The strategy was applied to curb the deadly coronavirus.
The economy of Dubai heavily relies on tourism; it essential for the authorities to open its doors again. As the lockdown eases in the country, the residence will be able to enter the country from the 23rd of June (Tuesday).
However, the entrance will only be approved with a certificate that proves that the person entering the country has recently been tested for the novel coronavirus.
The Gulf Arab States airline posted a picture on their Instagram with the caption:
Welcome back to more stunning window views on Emirates as we resume flights to 30 cities worldwide. #WindowViewWednesday
“Those entering would have to present certificates to show they had recently tested negative for the coronavirus or would undergo tests on arrival at Dubai airports” – Dubai government media office statement, quotes a leading source.
Citizens and residents who are stuck abroad due to a sudden lockdown can finally return home from tomorrow onwards. “The new announcement will allow thousands of people affected by the worldwide restrictions in passenger air traffic since the start of the pandemic to resume their travel plans,” the Dubai media office said in the statement.
The Gulf Arab state halted all passenger flights at the beginning of March to curb the spread of the virus. Foreign citizens were banned from returning to the country. Some residence were allowed entry after the UAE government approved.
A strict lockdown was imposed earlier in the country, which is now being outlawed. However, restrictions on movement persist. Reportedly, shopping malls have started opening routinely, and private businesses have opened, and people are back to work.
