The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will suspend travelers from entering the country from Liberia, Sierra Leone and Namibia on national and foreign flights from Monday, June 21, state news agency WAM said on Saturday.


WAM said the restrictions would also include transit passengers, with the exception of transit flights travelling to the UAE and bound for those countries.


The updates are part of the authorities’ keenness to protect passengers and ease hassles for them without compromising on COVID-19 precautionary measures put in place to safeguard everyone’s health and wellbeing.
