DUBAI BANS TRAVELLERS FROM ZAMBIA

SO WHERE WILL ECZ PRINT EXTRA BALLOT PAPERS FOR RIGGING?

The UAE has suspended the entry of travellers from Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda on all flights of national and foreign carriers, effective June 11.

The directive is also applicable on transit passengers coming in from these countries, with the exception of transit flights coming into the UAE from other destinations and heading to these three countries.

Those excluded from the suspension include UAE citizens and their first-degree relatives, and diplomatic missions accredited between the UAE and the three countries, including administrators working in the embassies.

The injunction also excludes official delegations and businessmen, provided they obtain prior approval, as well as holders of golden and silver residency, in addition to those performing vital jobs according to the classification of the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, and crews of foreign freight and transit planes, provided that a negative laboratory test result for Covid-19 is obtained within 48 hours of departure and upon arrival and they quarantine until departure.

The excluded groups will be require to undertake a 10-day quarantine, a PCR examination at the airport, and will have to repeat the test on the fourth and eighth days after entering the country. The PCR testing period prior to travel has been reduced from 72 to 48 hours, and tests must administered by approved laboratories that issue results carrying a QR Code.

The General Authority of Civil Aviation confirmed that travelers coming from Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Uganda through other countries are required to have a period of stay in those countries of not less than 14 days in order to be allowed to enter the country.

Cargo flights between the UAE and the three countries will remain unaffected.

    Agree with you Kalok. This is a cut and paste story without adding context for ZWD local readers. the action is mostly due to rising Cov cases in Zambia and the other named countries. MoH needs to shut the country down. The infection rates will continue to rise up to August/September. We need a min 3 week lockdown to break the current infection cycle to give us a chance get through winter. Otherwise, election time will be overshadowed by funeral fear and low voter turnout

    Why don’t you report on the reasons for the suspension? This is vexatious reporting
