Abu Dhabi (Gulf Inside) The UAE is a collection of seven states that came into being in 1971. The seven states include Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman and Umm Al Quwain. During the Corona epidemic, these states have developed their own policies on SOPs, vaccinations, quarantine, and isolation. However, in all the states of the UAE, the vaccine has been given only to resident visa holders and the local population for several months.
Last week, the Abu Dhabi government announced that tourists would also be vaccinated. After which tourists from other states also started turning to Abu Dhabi in the hope that perhaps all tourists in the UAE would be given the facility to get free vaccinations.
An important explanation has been given by the Abu Dhabi government after this rush of tourists. According to Urdu News, the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi, has removed the option of applying for the vaccine from the Corona vaccine application reserved for tourists.
Last week, a hotline from Abu Dhabi’s Health Services Company (SEHA) said tourists were eligible. SEHA, a company that runs the UAE’s health infrastructure, has said that tourists who have been issued visas by Abu Dhabi and those who are eligible for tourist visas can book free vaccines upon entry. The vaccine was limited to residents. The Abu Dhabi media office did not respond to a request for comment. The media office said in a statement on Thursday that the vaccine was available to those whose residence or entry visas had expired. This does not include people with tourist or visitor visas.
