Arguably, it is not unknown to anyone how the Coronavirus pandemic has stunned the world. As it grew into a global health crisis, our normal lifestyle and routine changed. Travelling from one place to another was never this risky before. However, we cannot forget Albert Einstein’s quote that says, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving”. The United Arab Emirates (UAE), like many other countries, is trying to cope with the situation by letting go of our old normal and now settling into what seems to be our new normal.
This year March, the UAE closed its borders to everyone but the returning Emiratis citizens and residents, as an attempt to prevent the spread of the deadly Coronavirus. However, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) announced new guidelines. This guideline permits the residents to travel abroad to certain destinations from June 23rd onwards.
A system was introduced in which countries were categorized into low, medium, and high risk. This system allows citizens and residents to travel to low-risk nations. For emergency cases, the system allows some Emiratis to travel to medium-risk nations; such as medical issues, military or diplomatic missions, etc. Nevertheless, travelers must obey these general guidelines and travel requirements no matter what country they are travelling to.
