More countries added to the amber list by UK
The UK government announced on Thursday that the UAE will be moved from the red to the amber list, as the situation in the country improves.
Bahrain, India and Qatar were also moved to the amber list, according to a statement issued by the UK Government. All changes announced on Thursday have come into effect today Sunday, 8th August, 4.00 am (UK time).
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said, “We are committed to opening up international travel safely, taking advantage of the gains we’ve made through our successful vaccination programme, helping connect families, friends and businesses around the world.
“While we must continue to be cautious, today’s changes reopen a range of different holiday destinations across the globe, which is good news for both the sector and travelling public,” he added.
While all the safety guidelines and protocols are followed to ensure safe travel, UAE has enforced FacePass to recognise each traveller with their dose of vaccination.
However, with the reopening of travel, both these countries are ready to establish business relations and tourism.
