Flights From Nigeria To The UAE Banned Over Spike In COVID 19 Infections

The United Arab Emirates will suspend its ban on transit passenger traffic from India, Pakistan, Nigeria, and other countries from August 5 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This was announced by the country’s National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority (NCEMA) on Tuesday, August 3; against the backdrop of a resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The UAE, a major international travel hub, has banned passengers from many South Asian and African countries; for several months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

NCEMA said on Twitter that passengers travelling from countries where flights had been suspended would be able to transit through its airports from Thursday as long as they present negative COVID-19 PCR tests taken 72 hours prior to departure.

Final destination approval would also have to be provided, the authority said; adding that UAE departure airports would arrange separate lounges for transiting passengers.

The transit ban had also included Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Uganda.

NCEMA said that a ban on entry to the UAE for passengers from these countries would also be lifted for those with valid residencies; and who are certified by Emirati authorities as fully vaccinated.

However, they would need to apply for online entry permits prior to travelling; and would need to present a negative PCR test taken 48 hours prior to departure.

Those working in the medical, educational, or government sectors in the Gulf Arab state; as well as those studying or completing medical treatment in the UAE would be exempt; from the vaccination requirement as would humanitarian cases.
