The Department of Culture and Tourism of Abu Dhabi has not begun to include Russia in the updated list of “green” countries. Thus, Russians will still have to go through quarantine when entering the emirate.
At present, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bhutan, Brunei, China, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greenland, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malta, Mauritius, Moldova, Morocco, New Zealand have “green” status, Norway, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United States of America and Uzbekistan.
The list is revised every two weeks, taking into account the current level of spread of the coronavirus in the countries, as well as the strains recorded.
In addition, Abu Dhabi announced the transition to COVOD-free mode from August 2021. In particular, from August 20, only those vaccinated against coronavirus will be allowed to visit all public places in the emirate, the Committee on Crisis and Emergencies of the emirate said.
This includes resort areas, shopping centers, restaurants, cafes, recreation areas, entertainment centers, museums, theme parks and gyms. The decision was made after 93% of the target groups in the emirate were vaccinated.
The exception only affects children under 15 years of age and those who have a medical challenge.
According to the UAE Ministry of Health, at the moment 85% of citizens and residents of the country have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. About 40% of residents have been fully vaccinated. Vaccines from the Chinese corporation Sinopharm and the American Pfizer, developed in conjunction with its German partner BioNTech, are available in the country.
Currently, more than two thousand cases are detected daily in the UAE.
Only important. For the pros only.
