Rules in the UAE regarding returning to the country have kept on changing from time to time but the official one has already been announced.
Returning Dubai residents will no longer be required to secure an ICA approval, however, Dubai visa holders are still mandated to get a return approval from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) website.
To enter Abu Dhabi and other emirates except for Dubai, residents are still required to secure ICA approval.
It has also been announced that UAE citizens (Emiratis) are required to register with Twajudi service if they seek to travel outside the country. Travelers may also need to undergo Covid-19 testing before travel (48 hours validity) depending on the requirements of the destination.
According to the new set of rules, all travelers are also advised to download the Al Hosn app and show the result on the app at the immigration.
Additionally, all returning expats need to secure international health insurance.
