The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has extended a ban on entry from travellers coming from India, the foreign ministry in Abu Dhabi said in a statement posted on its website Tuesday.
The statement did not specify a date to lift the suspension, which was first announced on April 22.
“Flights between the two countries will continue to allow passengers from the UAE to India,” the statement said.
India’s coronavirus infection count surpassed 20 million on Tuesday, making it the second most infected country in the world after the United States.
The UAE’s General Authority of Civil Aviation confirmed that travellers arriving from India via other countries must show proof of a minimum 14-day stay in those countries to enter the UAE.
