Abu Dhabi is thinking about reopening for international tourists by early January with relaxation of restrictive measures, looking to recover from the virus.
The capital of the United Arab Emirates will permit visitors from a group of countries that it considers safe, and that list will be updated every two weeks, according to an official at the Department of Culture and Tourism. The timeline for reopening may change, said the official. Travelers from other countries with a lower safety score will be required to quarantine for 14 days.
The UAE registered a China-backed Covid-19 vaccine after finding that it had 86% effectiveness, paving the way for a full public use and allowing a reopening of the Gulf nation’s economy.
Abu Dhabi said that the vaccine could be a game-changer, and added that it would start working with local authorities to recommence all activities including economic, tourism and cultural operations.
