The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Tuesday reported 1,061 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 1,146 recoveries.

The new cases were detected through additional 102,379 tests.

Six new deaths were also reported.

More than 10.2 million Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the UAE so far.

It was announced yesterday that the UAE will resume issuing entry and work permits for employment in government and semi-government entities, as well as visas for domestic workers. Measures to stem the spread of Covid-19, such as PCR tests for workers before they enter the country, as well as quarantine if deemed necessary, will be in place. The announcement was made by UAE’s official news agency WAM, citing the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Workers holding valid UAE residence visas can continue to enter the country, irrespective of their nationality, including those who work in government and semi-government entities. Those wishing to enter the country are required to submit a request on the website ica.gov.ae.

Meanwhile, residents and tourists will be able to fly to Ras Al Khaimah without obtaining approval from October 15. They will have to adhere to the procedures and requirements adopted by the country that include undergoing medical testing and obtaining a negative result before returning within a period not exceeding 96 hours. Travellers or their sponsors should cover the cost of another lab test or PCR test, as well as the cost of quarantine in the case of a positive result. Additionally, tourists will have to fulfil requirements such as reserving travel tickets and obtaining tourist medical insurance. Tourists are also required to undergo a PCR test four days before coming to the country, as well as fill in a medical disclosure form for submission to relevant authorities.
