As the UAE continues to be a leader in its COVID-19 vaccination rate, more than 6.5 million doses have been administered nationwide.

With the mass vaccination plan in place, it aims to help boost the tourism industry recover, with many countries implementing digital medical records to show those who have had their vaccine.

As a result, many countries have opened their borders to those with both vaccine doses or waiving any mandatory quarantine rules for those tourists.

With that, here’s where you can travel to freely from the UAE if you have the COVID-19 vaccine.

According to Georgia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, those who have both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, along with the documents to prove it, they can enter the country without having to quarantine. Entry restrictions were lifted for those with vaccinations back in February.


It was announced back in January by the country’s National Committee for Emergency Situations (CNSU) that visitors who are vaccinated did not have to quarantine.

Last week, the Seychelles announced its intent to reopen its borders to all countries at the end of March.

The island getaway’s government announced that borders would reopen on March 25 to visitors. In line with safety protocols, a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be required to be taken within 72 hours of departure to the Seychelles.

Prior to this, if you wanted to travel to the Seychelles and avoid quarantine, visitors were required to have been vaccinated against COVID-19.

At the end of last year, Cyprus became the first country that announced it would allow visitors in who have had their full COVID-19 vaccines with no need to quarantine, but this is still yet to be officially confirmed.

Back in January, it was initially announced that these guidelines would come into effect on March 1, but this has not been the case as of yet and is yet to be confirmed by the Cypriot government.

The move, however, is to boost tourism towards the country, according to the country’s transport minister Yiannis Karousos.

“The amended action plan is expected to further boost the interest of airline companies to carry out additional flights to Cyprus, improve connectivity and increase passenger traffic,” he told the Cyprus Mail back in December 2020.
