Indian national carrier Air India on Sunday in a tweet said that due to travel restrictions implemented by the UAE govt, it is operating a limited number of flights to Dubai (UAE).
In response to a customer’s tweet, the airline said, “Flights to Dubai are being operated with curtailed schedules due to travel restrictions implemented by the UAE government. Before planning your travel, please confirm your eligibility for entry into UAE.”
It is important to note that the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) of UAE on 24th June issued a NOTAM (Notice Issued to Airmen) and said that the flights from India and 13 other countries which includes, Liberia, Namibia, Sierra Leone, the Democratic Republic Of Congo, Uganda, Zambia, Vietnam, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Nigeria, and South Africa will remain suspended until 23:59 hrs. of July 21, 2021.
Earlier, the airline said that “In view of travel restrictions announced by the UAE government, flights between India and UAE are suspended till 06th Jul’21. Please keep a watch on our Twitter handle and website for further updates.”
Who Can Travel To UAE?
UAE Nationals, holders of UAE Golden Visas, Silver Residence Permit Holders, and members of diplomatic missions who comply with the revised published COVID-19 protocols will be exempt for the travel.
Also, travelers coming from India through other countries are required to provide proof of a period of stay in those countries of no less than 14 days to be allowed to enter the UAE.
Recently, the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has also eased the travel restrictions and allowed holders of UAE residency visas who stuck outside the country to return from certain nations if they have received two doses of a UAE-approved vaccine.
