Registering information with Twajudi and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship website are two of the new requirements for UAE citizens and residents flying out of the country.

As flights out of the UAE start to resume, the UAE’s National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) released a set of guidelines on its Twitter account for those travelling outside of the country.

They include:

-registering information via Twajudi, which can be done through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website or the UAEMOFA app for Android and iOS.

-Ensuring that the air passenger fulfills all health requirements of both the destination country and the UAE, which may include quarantine, a pre-travel check-up, following tracking programmes, etc.

-Following both airline and airport requirements for travel

-Filling out a traveller’s health status form

-Registering with the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship

NCEMA also stated that those over 70 years old or with a chronic disease would not be permitted to travel. Upon reaching the destination, UAE citizens must notify their embassy should they experience any Covid-19 symptoms.

When returning to the UAE, travellers must download and activate the Al Hosn app as well as following quarantine guidelines, which are dependent on the destination passengers are returning from.
