Indian passport holders, who have not been to the country in the last 14 days, can get tourist visas to the UAE, according to a media report on Sunday. The facility has been extended to Nepal, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Uganda, other than India, the Gulf News reported.

Presently, only UAE citizens and transit passengers are allowed to fly to the UAE, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Indian nationals with a visa or residence permit issued by the USA, United Kingdom or an EU Member State can visit Abu Dhabi, for which ICA approval is not required and vaccination is not a condition of entry.

Approval of tourist visas for Indian passport holders, who have not been in the country in the last fortnight, comes as the UAE is slowly opening up its arrivals.

All flyers will have to undergo a Polymerase Chain Reaction test on the day of arrival and on the ninth day after arrival in the UAE.
Meanwhile, the UAE has said it will accept passengers from Pakistani airports Islamabad, Karachi and Lahore. Earlier, arrivals from Pakistan were only allowed to transit passengers.

This comes as a big relief for smaller airports, and even larger airports, where infrastructure is limited, or there would be chaos in case two to three international flights are scheduled to depart to the UAE or other destinations, that require such tests in a matter of hours.

The coronavirus has claimed 2,018 lives along with 708,302 confirmed infections in the the UAE, according to Johns Hopkins University.
