Dubai plans to repatriate 200,000 residents stranded abroad

It has now been few months, that the borders have been closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Dubai's General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs wants to support its population and therefore GDRFA  announced the launch of an online application for valid UAE residency visa holders, trapped overseas. Each of them, may now apply for an entry permit.

GDRFA requests residents, before booking their ticket to the country, to apply on this link to obtain permission to return home.

As the UAE is aiming to welcome the return of 200,000 residents, return relies on local travel limitations and availability of flights. On arrival, citizens will have to go through a coronavirus test and most importantly self-quarantine at home for 14 days.
