More and more flights are also being announced…

Since travel was restricted over the past few months, there has been much speculation about how, if and when travel in and out of the UAE would go back to normal.

Now it seems there is more good news, as a recent report from Dubai Tourism has stated that the UAE is preparing to fully reopen its borders, according to several news outlets.

Whilst no firm date for the full reopening has been announced, it’s encouraging news in the wake of many UAE residents being stranded abroad, and those wishing to travel once again.

In an update on the Dubai Tourism Trade Toolkit, it said, “Authorities are preparing for a full reopening of UAE’s borders, subject to the removal of travel restrictions by implementing a series of strategic measures in conjunction with their federal counterparts designed to ensure the virus does not enter the emirate through its sea and land ports. ”
