UAE authorities have recently confirmed that expats with valid residence visa are now allowed to enter and leave the host country.
And just very recently, the government has also announced that Dubai visa holders are no longer required to secure the ICA approval. However, they need to get a returning permit at the General Directorate of Residency and Foreign Affairs (GDRFA) website.
Meanwhile, to enter Abu Dhabi and other emirates, residents are still required to get ICA approval.
Both forms should be printed, completed, and handed over to the Dubai Health Authority staff at arrival.
