Muscat: The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has eased PCR rules for visitors coming to the country via land borders.


The decision will benefit travellers coming from the Sultanate of Oman as vaccinated GCC residents and citizens are required to have a negative result of a Covid-19 test taken within 14 days of entry.


They must also undergo a Covid test on day six after entry.


Unvaccinated visitors must have a negative result of a test taken within 72 hours prior to entry.


They must also get tested on days four and eight after entry.


The validity of the PCR test result has been extended to 14 days for vaccinated and non-vaccinated educational staff, students, and their parents who pick them up from schools.


“Visitors would be required to commit to all Covid safety protocols as wearing masks, maintaining a safe social distance, and sterilizing luggage.”


Those with chronic diseases, or Covid symptoms must avoid travel to the UAE.
