The tourism industry is one of the biggest and important economic drivers in the UAE, especially in diversifying the economy. Similar with the rest of the industries, it was also slowed down and disrupted by the effects of COVID-19. Thanks to the government’s wise handling of the crisis, various industries and sectors are rebounding and with the vaccination programs on full swing, people are again back to traveling. The UAE tourism sector is about to welcome back visitors while ensuring their health and safety.
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) announced the opening of tourist visas applications for citizens from all countries, provided that they are fully vaccinated with WHO-approved COVID-19 vaccines. The tourism industry is posed to play a pivotal role and will create a domino effect on the recovery of other economic sectors. The UAE aims to create a balance between economic growth and public health.
