UAE Approves 5 COVID-19 Vaccines, Including Sinopharm

The United Arab Emirates has announced the lifting of the ban on transit flights to several countries, including Pakistan.

Residents who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will also be allowed to enter the UAE.

Five vaccines are approved for use in the UAE:

  •  Pfizer-BioNTech
  • Advertisement
  •  Sinopharm
  •  Oxford-AstraZeneca
  •  Moderna
  • Sputnik V

The UAE’s National Emergency and Crisis Management Authority announced on Tuesday that the ban on transit flights to several other countries, including Pakistan, India and Nigeria, would be lifted from August 5. These days, thousands of travellers going abroad are stranded in Pakistan.


The UAE airport is considered a hub for international travellers. Due to the Coronavirus, the Gulf country banned flights from African countries, including South Asia. Dubai officials said on Tuesday that transit passengers from countries that were banned would now be able to use Dubai Airport.

However, all such passengers will have to show a negative PCR test, which was done better hours before departure.

All passengers arriving in the UAE will have to show their final destination ticket. Separate transit areas have been set aside for such passengers at UAE departure airports.

On the other hand, such travellers will be allowed to enter the UAE, who have a valid residence permit and who will be able to provide proof that they have fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

However, passengers entering the UAE must obtain an online entry permit before departure. An online negative PCR test must also be submitted for an entry permit. This must be done forty-eight hours before departure.

Individuals who are working in the UAE in medical, education or any government sector or who want to come to the country for education or treatment are exempted from the vaccination requirement.


According to the UAE, such cases will be treated on humanitarian grounds.
