The Chinese authorities have allowed tourist groups to put the UAE.
The Chinese authorities have relaxed restrictive measures in connection with COVID-19 and allowed organized tourist groups to resume travel to the United Arab Emirates from February 6, 2023.
It is specified that travel was banned back in 2020, after the outbreak of the coronavirus began. The world’s most populous country is currently experiencing a peak COVID-19 outbreak.
In the pre-pandemic year, Dubai received 989,000 travelers from China. It is worth noting that the Chinese were also allowed to enter other countries of the world, including Russia. Hotels and airlines are now reopening reservations for tourists from the Celestial Empire.
As of Jan. 8, China lifted major restrictions on entry into the country, which had been imposed as part of the fight against the coronavirus. International travelers flying from the United Arab Emirates to China must undergo PCR testing for coronavirus at least 48 hours before departure.
All passengers are required to present negative COVID-19 test results for boarding the flight. Although quarantine procedures have been cancelled, travelers will also be asked to fill out health questionnaires.
Since 2020, China has had a “zero tolerance” policy for COVID-19, including lockdowns and mandatory quarantine for those who come in contact with infected people. In December 2022, authorities began lifting some of the restrictions, followed by a sharp increase in the incidence of the disease.
Along with this, tourists arriving in the United Arab Emirates no longer need to show a vaccination certificate or negative PCR test results to board a flight. At the same time, passengers traveling with a stopover in Dubai must follow the requirements of their final destinations.
