Silver Residency Permit holders from India and neighboring countries, viz. Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka will be permitted to enter the UAE, as per the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority. This comes after the UAE opened its airports for Gold Residency Permit holders to enter the country.
Travellers from these countries will, though, have to undergo the protocol safety measures, which include wearing a monitoring and tracking device. The initial mandatory quarantine period is 10 days and will consist of two PCR tests, one on day 4 of the quarantine and the second on day 8 of quarantine. If both the PCR tests return Negative, the person will be free to proceed with his regular stay.
During the quarantine, movement is restricted between airport and the quarantine institute (resort), without coming into contact with persons from the community, as per GCAA quarantine rules.
UAE has once again managed to curtail the spread of the virus by implementing strict rules. Jet operators, additionally, cannot sell individual tickets on charter flights from the above countries. Business jets can, however accommodate upto 8 passengers in one flight. This restriction is in place primarily for passengers from India.
