The UAE authorities announced the suspension of entry for travelers from 7 African countries, including South Africa, in light of fears of a new strain of the Corona virus that causes the “Covid-19” infection recently discovered in the region.

The General Authority of Civil Aviation and the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority announced the suspension of entry for travelers from South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique on all flights of national and foreign carriers, as well as transit passengers coming from them, as of Monday, November 29.

This includes, as reported by the official Emirati “WAM” agency, “suspending the entry of travelers who were in these countries during the 14-day period before coming to the UAE with the continuation of flights, as it will allow the transfer of passengers from the UAE to these countries.”

The agency added, “It will allow the transfer of excluded groups from South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique to the UAE with the application of precautionary measures, which include official delegations and UAE nationals, diplomatic missions accredited between the UAE and these countries and owners of golden residence.”
