Exempted travelers, including UAE citizens and their first degree relatives, those on diplomatic missions accredited by the UAE and the three countries (including administrators working in embassies), official delegations and businessmen provided that they receive prior approval, golden and sliver residence holders, essential jobs according to the classification of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA), crews of foreign shipment and transit aircraft will be subject to precautionary measures that include a 10-day quarantine and PCR testing at the airport and on the fourth and eighth days after entering the country.
