THoD Newsdesk, Abu Dhabi: The capital city of the UAE, Abu Dhabi has put forward plans of reopening for international tourists by early January, for which it has eased out on the restrictive measures. This step has been undertaken in a bid to recover from the ongoing pandemic.
Abu Dhabi will permit visitors from a group of countries it deems safe and that list will be updated every two weeks, according to an official at the Department of Culture and Tourism. The timeline for reopening may change, the official stated. Travellers from other countries with a lower safety grade will be required to quarantine for 14 days, before stepping out.
This confidence of letting visitors in, is backed by the hopes of a vaccine, powered by China. UAE has registered a COVID-19 vaccine, after finding it had a 86% efficiency rate, paving the way for public use and allowing for the resumption of pre-covid activities, related to economic, tourism and cultural operations.
