SHARJAH – UAE expatriates who have residence visas issued in Sharjah are now allowed to return through the airport and ports of Sharjah, authorities announced.
According to the Sharjah Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Committee, all Sharjah residents are allowed to enter the UAE through the Sharjah airport and ports without the need to obtain prior approvals.
Previously, returning UAE residents needed to obtain an entry permit from the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Now, Sharjah authorities have scrapped this requirement.
However, it is mandatory for travelers to undergo a PCR or Covid-19 test not earlier than 96 hours before the date of travel and the results must be negative.
They will have to undergo another PCR test upon arrival at the Sharjah airport or ports. The expenses of health isolation of positive cases will be covered by travellers or their sponsors.
They will have to self-quarantine at their hotel or place of residence until the results of the PCR test.
UAE nationals will need to download the Al Hosn app that monitors the isolation and quarantine of positive cases according to the procedures of the UAE Ministry of Health and Community Protection.
All travellers must adhere to the safety procedures and guidelines stipulated by the UAE government and other countries.
They must disclose all medical symptoms and underlying conditions, if any, before travelling to and returning through the ports of the emirate. They will also need to fill out the form provided by the airlines. ICA/Expat Media
