United Arab Emirates To Resume Passenger Flights

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will resume passenger flights from Nigeria and 11 other African countries on Saturday, January 29.

UAE’s National Crisis and Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA) announced this in a tweet on Wednesday.

“From January 29, entry into the UAE for arrivals from Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Nigeria, the Republic of the Congo, the Republic of South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, and Zimbabwe is allowed again,” the tweet read.

The country’s agency said entry procedures have been updated for flights originating from Ghana, Rwanda, and Uganda.

According to the statement, passengers arriving from these three countries to the UAE must have a negative COVID-19 test obtained within 48 hours of departure from the approved labs in their respective countries.

Passengers must undergo a Rapid PCR test at the airports of departure. On arrival in the UAE, they will be subjected to another PCR test, asking residents of African countries to refrain from travelling to the country if they have COVID-19 symptoms.
