The United Arab Emirates will reopen its tourist visas on August 30th from all countries after 18 months of changing restrictions. 
The decision will open up tourist visas from countries that the UAE previously banned. However, visitors from those countries will still need to take a negative PCR test.
The United Arab Emirates previously banned citizens from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Vietnam, Zambia, Congo, Uganda, Bangladesh, Namibia, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Nigeria. 
Travelers from every country in the world can apply for a U.A.E tourist visa from tomorrow. All passengers will have to take a mandatory rapid PCR test on arrival. 
In addition, all travelers will have to register their vaccination status on the government’s official health app. Travelers that wish to receive the same benefits as fully vaccinated UAE residents and citizens can state their vaccination status via the Al Hosn Application or the ICA platform.
However, all unvaccinated travelers will still face the same restrictions as before. 
All vaccination doses will have to have received approval from the World Health Organization. These include:
Of course, with many countries around the world, such as the U.K, dropping all COVID-19 restrictions, it’s important to gauge the restrictions on the ground before traveling. 
Here is a list of current restrictions inside the U.A.E for citizens, residents, and tourists 
As of August 26th, Abu Dhabi has introduced the following rules
The United Arab Emirates certainly hasn’t been a COVID-free country throughout the pandemic. Although the country had low cases at the start, they reopened for tourists in July 2020 and COVID-19 has been prevalent in the country ever since. 
That said, cases are at their lowest since the start of 2021 as the country records a 7-day daily average of 1,013 cases per day. 
The United Arab Emirates also has one of the best vaccination rollouts worldwide. The U.A.E has fully vaccinated 75.9 percent of its residents and given one dose to 86.9 percent of its residents. 
Therefore, the U.A.E has the highest total doses per 100 residents at 183.3. 
The United Arab Emirates is one of the world’s most important travel hubs and airports.
The slow and steady drop in restrictions is another sign that the world might be opening up again after the frustration of the Delta variant which has stopped many nations from opening this summer.
