LONDON: The United Arab Emirate (UAE) has been moved from the red to the amber list by the United Kingdom government, with effect from Sunday, August 8, 2021. The decision was made after examining developments in the international travel system in light of the Covid-19 outbreak.
In accordance with the decision published on Thursday, anyone who travels to one of these countries will no longer be required to arrange a quarantine hotel package for when they return to the United Kingdom. Bahrain, India, and Qata are among the countries that have been transferred from the red to the amber list, according to a statement made by the United Kingdom government.
“We are determined to opening up international travel safely, taking advantage of the advances we’ve made through our successful vaccination campaign, and assisting in the connection of families, friends, and businesses around the world,” Transport Secretary Grant Shapps was quoted as saying. “While we must be careful, today’s reforms reopen a variety of diverse vacation spots throughout the world, which is good news for both the tourism industry and the general public,” he continued.
