What Else?

Meanwhile, the UAE is making all efforts to bring back residents stuck in other parts of the world. Recently, UAE brought home six months pregnant Hannah O’ Reilly back to the UAE. Hannah works as a supply teacher at a Dubai-based school and was stranded in the USA. Hannah landed in the USA on 12 March and all was well until UAE suspended flights on 18 March.

Stressed, and devastated, Hannah made several attempts to head back to the UAE, but nothing materialized. She was later informed that she could be sent back home under emergency basis. Following this, she got a call from the UAE Embassy on 25 March, and was asked to drive down to a hotel in Washington, where other UAE-bound travelers were being housed. Hannah was permitted to fly on an Etihad flight back to Abu Dhabi. Hannah finally landed in Abu Dhabi on 29 March.
