DUBAI – The UAE has extended an entry ban for all travelers coming from India, with the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA) suspending “all inbound passenger movement” from India until July 6.

Previously, Dubai carrier Emirates announced that passenger flights from India would remain suspended until June 30.
The suspension of inbound travel from India to UAE began on April 24 after India was hit by a second wave of Covid-19.
