Vaccinated Indians Can Go Skiing In Dubai Now & Meet Penguins Too!

The UAE has already reopened tourism for vaccinated travellers from India. Let’s revise a little? Passengers can apply for a tourist visa with effect from today and receive quick approval. The new rule applies to all those fully vaccinated with the Covishield/AstraZeneca vaccine. Entry conditions from India remain largely the same as those for residents. Tourists will need to prove that they are fully vaccinated with a WHO-approved vaccine to receive a visa and enter. That means only passengers that have taken Covishield/Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine are eligible for travelling. Those taking COVAXIN or Sputnik V remain barred.

Well, all of us are already well-acquainted with the tourist visas getting back on the table but did we share with you one of the most frolic attractions making its way back to Dubai? People have by now started flocking to the country to meet friends and family or vacation. And now, vacations will be getting all the more exciting. Because of the return of Ski Dubai.
