Dubai: Airport CEO outlines restrictions for travellers
The United Arab Emirates, home of popular holiday hotspot Dubai, has been axed from England’s travel corridor list. Now, all arrivals from the nation into England must quarantine for ten days.
The news comes just hours after Scotland made the same decision in response to a rise in cases of coronavirus in the country.
The Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) is now advising against “all but essential travel to the UAE, based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks”.
The FCDO explains: “If you are returning to England, Northern Ireland, and Wales from the UAE on or after 4am on 12 January, you will need to self-isolate on your return.”
It adds: “If you are returning to Scotland from Dubai on or after 4am on 11 January, you need to self-isolate on your return.
“If you are returning to Scotland from the remainder of the UAE on or after 4am on 12 January, you will need to self-isolate on your return.”
