The United Arab Emirates and Greece have established “a safe travel corridor” for those who have been vaccinated against COVID-19, UAE state news agency WAM said on Friday.
It follows similar announcements this week by the UAE of safe travel corridors to Serbia, Bahrain and the Seychelles.
The safe travel corridor to Greece begins on May 18.
The quarantine-free travel corridor will ease the travel of vaccinated people holding vaccination certificates issued by health authorities in the two countries, without the need to apply health quarantine requirements upon arrival, while abiding by other precautionary measures.
“This step affirms the keenness of the leadership of both countries to facilitate the movement of individuals, promote tourism between the two countries, and achieve the desired goals of vaccination campaigns, which reached advanced rates in the percentage of vaccine recipients to ensure the health and safety of the community and prevent the spread of the pandemic,” Wam reported.
As per the new regulations, citizens and residents wishing to benefit from the quarantine-free travel corridor in both countries will be required to show documentation that they have received the last dose of a COVID-19 vaccine per the approved applications or certificates issued by health authorities.
Travelers can also present PCR laboratory test results through these applications.
