The UAE has announced that tourism will not be considered as a reason to travel. The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority implemented an approval form for those who have appropriate reasons. Along with the non-refundable Dhs50 form, you will need to submit your ID, residence permit copy and your passport copy. Here is why you may be the next passenger:
1. Medical treatment

Students will need to provide a non-objection letter issued by the Ministry of Education.
A letter from your employer is required stating your training or job is to be done abroad.
For private-sector business travel, you will need supporting documents such as contracts or property papers to prove this.
5. Compassionate leave
Poof of illness or a death certificate of a first-degree relative is required.
6. Emiratis who reside abroad
Citizens with residency permits or a marriage contracts will be allowed to leave the UAE. Emiratis must also report to their nearest UAE embassy on arrival at their destination.
