UAE Lifts Travel Restrictions On Nigeria, 11 Other African Countries

UAE Lifts Travel Restrictions On Nigeria, 11 Other African Countries (Updated: 4 months ago)


The United Arab Emirates has announced it is lifting its entry and transit travel ban placed on some African countries like Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia and eight others.

The lifting of the ban was made known on Wednesday by the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA).

The ban was initially imposed in light of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.

“From January 29, entry into the UAE for arrivals from Kenya, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Nigeria, the Republic of the Congo, the Republic of South Africa, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe is allowed again,” NCEMA said on Twitter.

The initial ban covered travellers who had visited certain African countries in the previous 14 days.

The changes will come into effect at 2:30pm on Saturday, January 29.

Other countries to be affected by the lift include Tanzania, Republic of Congo, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia and Zimbabwe.

Under the new regulations, while travellers will be required to obtain a negative COVID-19 PCR test 48 hours prior to departure and a negative rapid-PCR test at the departure airport, those travelling from Uganda, Ghana and Rwanda will also have to take the three tests. Passengers will also be tested on arrival.
