UAE Vacation Checklist

Verify your country’s requirements for visas.

In the UAE, visitors must get a visa, much like in most other nations. You might be able to obtain a visa upon arrival depending on the citizenship you possess, or you can apply for a visit visa in advance of your trip.

UAE Safety Guidelines

Masks are no longer required in public areas, but it goes without saying that travellers in the new normal must be extra cautious and responsible. The Dubai Health Authority has provided the following advice on how to keep safe before, during, and after travel:
Pick a location with reduced risk, and make sure you have a seasonal influenza vaccine at least two weeks before your vacation, as well as a COVID-19 booster dose (if eligible).
Always use a mask and take precautions when in public places.
To avoid crowds, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth without first washing your hands.

Isolate yourself and conduct a PCR test if you exhibit any COVID-19 symptoms.
