Travelling amid COVID-19

This page covers travel information and mandatory procedures for those who want to travel out of the UAE and those who wish to enter the UAE or transit through the UAE amid COVID-19.

After suspending commercial passenger flights in and out of the UAE on 23 March 2020, the UAE facilitated repatriation and humanitarian flights to help expatriate residents to go back to their home countries and to bring Emiratis who were abroad back to the UAE. Cargo flights were operational, with special safety measures in place to help bring in and send vital commodities.
