The Government announced this evening that the United Arab Emirates has been removed from the ‘travel corridors’ list.
Anyone landing in the UK after visiting Dubai, Abu Dhabi or any of the other Emirates after 4am tomorrow (Tuesday) will need to quarantine for 10 days. This can be reduced to 5 days via the ‘test to release’ scheme.
The removal comes after a sharp rise in reported cases in the UAE over the last couple of days. The Scottish Government brought in its own block this morning after cases involving the Celtic football team which had taken a ‘training break’ in Dubai.
The official ‘travel corridor’ list, which already reflects this change, is on this page of the Government website.
