UAE residents to enter EU member states soon without restrictions

Soon, fully-vaccinated UAE residents, who hold a vaccination certificate issued by relevant authorities, can travel to the European Union member states without restrictions.

The UAE is now connected to the EU Digital Covid Certificate system, the European Union announced on Saturday.

The EU tweeted,

"This will make travel between the EU and the UAE easier as certificates issued by the UAE are now equivalent to the EU Covid Certificate,"

The UAE is one of the first countries in the Mena region to achieve this.

However, it is up to the member states to decide whether they are ready to start accepting travelers, the European Commission said, according to an update posted on the official Schengen Visa website.

To ensure eligibility to enter the country, travellers from the UAE must check whether their vaccine is approved in the EU/Schengen country they're visiting.
