There is good news for those wanting to travel to the UAE, as according to a new rule, Indians with valid UAE visas can travel to the country now. The COVID-19 pandemic had put a pause to air travel for a long time, and Indians were not permitted to travel to the UAE, even with a tourist visa. Now Pavan Kumar, the Ambassador of India to the UAE tweeted saying that both Indians can now fly to the UAE with any type of valid visa.
This happens to be a good piece of news for those who are stranded in India to finally be able to travel to the UAE. The coronavirus had forced many people to stay away from their homes without any way to reach home. Under the government’s Vande Bharat scheme many stranded Indians were brought home, and the UAE move is also part of that.
During this age and time, countries are creating air bubbles to allow passenger movement. India too opened up some air travel channels with European countries recently. Now the air bubble with UAE is valid until August 31. You can hop on a flight between the two countries from August 16 to 31, 2020. You can choose from Delhi to Abu Dhabi; Abhu Dhabi to Gaya; Sharjah to Mengaluru; Delhi to Dubai; Dubai to Mumbai, and Lucknow to Dubai.
Travel during this time is not going to be as it was before, and this is why India’s airlines Indigo has now put out guidelines for travellers travelling between India and UAE. A lot more changes are expected with the passage of time as the world is trying to live with the virus, and people are adapting a whole new lifestyle.
