COVID-19: UAE bars entry for Uganda and two other African countries
The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will suspend entry for travelers coming from Zambia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda starting June 11, as part of efforts to contain the spread of the coronavirus, state news agency WAM said on Wednesday.
The measure applies to transit passengers, in addition to passengers who have travelled through these countries in the last 14 days prior to their arrival in UAE, WAM reported.
Emirati citizens, diplomatic passport holders, and official delegations are exempt from the measures.
Transit flights from the UAE to the affected countries, in addition to cargo flights, will continue to operate.
