For the better part of the last 18 months, Oman’s air, land and sea borders have remained closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, last week the country reopened their borders to vaccinated travellers and the Oman-UAE borders saw cars come and go for the first time in a year and a half.

Welcoming back visitors from Oman at the Abu Dhabi border, Abu Dhabi Police greeted travellers with roses and gifts on this special occasion early last week.

As the UAE continues to be a popular destination for neighbouring countries, the announcement came with an air of excitement, with travellers showcasing their enthusiasm on arrival.

The officials were thanked for their thoughtful gestures and warm welcome, which made the entry into the UAE even more exciting.

Keeping in line with the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, all those visiting the UAE from Oman must show proof of a negative PCR test, 48 hours prior to entry. On arrival at the border, a rapid PCR test will also be conducted before entry into the UAE.

If the stay continues for more than four days, an additional PCR test will be required on day four and day eight.

For those who wish to pay, a visit to the Sultanate from the UAE, both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine will be required to ensure smooth entry.

Known for their generosity, the UAE police have given out flowers to traffic violators last month in a bid to spread positivity and teach lessons in a kind manner.
