The UAE was initially allowing the golden visa holders to enter the nation from the restricted countries- however, as per the General Civil Aviation Authority (GACA) of UAE, all Silver Permit travellers who are eligible to travel from these nations and return to UAE. These travellers will be required to put on a monitoring and tracking device after arrival in the country.
The Travellers Will Have To Wear A Monitoring Bracelet For 10-days
Further, these people will be required to wear the monitoring bracelet for 10-days, then take a PCR test on the fourth day and then the eighth day. And if the results are negative, they will be free to go anywhere and even take off the bracelet. The GCCA has mentioned that quarantine rules for these visitors will be limited between the hotel and the airport. They cannot come in close contact with anyone.
