The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has now announced to allow silver residency permit holders to enter the country in addition to gold permits coming from countries in the subcontinent such as India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Sri Lanka. However, the General Civil Aviation Authority of the United Arab Emirates has mandated that passengers who are eligible to travel from these countries must wear a surveillance and tracking device.
According to the Times of India, when asked whether this means further tightening of rules for those coming from India. In response, a major charter operator said there were no further restrictions. In contrast, the UAE is now allowing holders of silver visas in addition to golden visa holders.
Passengers going to UAE will have to undergo RT-PCR on the fourth day and then on the eighth day. If the results are negative, they can take off the monitoring and tracking equipment and are free to go anywhere.
