Entry ban on UAE residents extended for two more weeks

UAE residents who have not been able to return to the country will be unable to do so for two more weeks, starting Thursday April 2.

The country has decided to renew the suspension of entry of all foreign nationals holding valid UAE residence visas, in a bid to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic and to ensure their safety.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MoFAIC) has requested those holding valid UAE visas, and now staying abroad, to register on the 'Tawajudi for Residents" Service.

The programme has been recently launched through the MoFAIC’s website to facilitate their safe return to the UAE in emergency situations.
