Citizens urged not to travel Tanzania, Equatorial Guinea

Due to the “Marburg” virus outbreaks in Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea at this time, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MOFAIC) has urged UAE citizens not to visit these countries.

“In view of the announcement by the health authorities in the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea of monitoring outbreaks of “Marburg” virus, and based on the Ministry’s concern for the safety of the country’s citizens, the Ministry advises to postpone travel to the Federal Republic of Tanzania and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea in this period,” said the Ministry on Saturday (April 1) through its official Twitter account.

The MOFAIC has also encouraged UAE residents already present there to use caution and follow the safety guidelines provided by the appropriate authorities.

For UAE nationals living abroad, the Ministry has provided a 24/7 emergency phone number (0097180024) that they can use to contact in an emergency.

MOFAIC recommended UAE nationals register for the “Twajudi” service using the Ministry’s smart app, “UAEMOFAIC,” or at if they are already traveling or planning to do so.

The Ministry offers a service called “Twajudi” to help communicate with UAE nationals living abroad, support them, and organize their return in the event of an emergency or disaster. KD/Expat Media
