CORONAVIRUS regulations have mostly been scrapped worldwide, although some places still have some rules in place.
Here is everything you need to know about heading to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for trips to Dubai or Abu Dhabi.
Is it safe to travel to Dubai?
Brits are able to travel to Dubai, and there are currently no travel warnings against trips to the UAE from the government.
All passengers travelling to the UAE are no longer required to present a Covid-19 vaccination certificate, or perform PCR tests.
Passengers travelling from or through the UAE are only required to comply with the transit requirements and travel requirements of their final destination and will only need to have proof of vaccination and/or a negative test if it is required at their final destination.
Some cruise operators have returned to ports in the UAE.
The UK government warns that passengers should talk to their cruise operators about arranging testing if it is necessary.
Some cruise ships require negative tests from passengers before they're allowed on board.
Anyone planning to travel on an international cruise that is due to call at any port in the UAE should contact their travel company for the latest information.
Anyone who is visiting the UAE should have a passport valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of entry into the country.
If you hold a residence permit, your passport must be valid for at least 3 months in order to travel to the UAE.
Passengers transiting through the UAE (and not passing through Immigration) only needs to have a passport with a minimum of 3 months validity from the date of transit.
Holders of full British passports will be granted a free of charge visitor/tourist visa upon arrival in the UAE. No application in advance of travel is needed.
