After their latest decision yesterday regarding the status of non-vaccinated people, talks have been spreading about how the government of Dubai will deal with tourists. Yesterday, the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), announced that from June 6th onwards, only those who have been fully vaccinated will be permitted to attend public events, in addition to obtaining a negative PCR test result within 48 hours prior to entry. As for tourists, there haven’t been any official reports on them, except for Chinese tourists who were recently the first, and only non-residents to receive the vaccine.
Since then, Dubai residents have been speculating about the status of tourists entering the city. And, although there hasn’t been an official announcement as of yet, Muhammad Ameer Saeed, Founder of ZOYA Health & Wellness Resort in Ajman, said in an interview that Dubai is planning on introducing a “vaccine visa” for tourists. This would allow visitors from different countries to come to the UAE and take the vaccine. In his interview with Smashi TV, he also stated that he is one of the officials from the Ministry of Health.
