UAE, Bahrain announce travel corridor for vaccinated passengers

WAM

The UAE and Bahrain have set up a quarantine-free travel corridor for citizens and residents who are vaccinated against COVID-19.

Fully inoculated passengers will be able to travel between the two countries without having to quarantine on arrival.

The move will come into effect from the first day of Eid Al Fitr.

Passengers will be required to adhere to the precautionary measures adopted by the destination country.

Citizens and residents who wish to benefit from the quarantine exemption will have to present evidence of receiving the full dose of the COVID-19 vaccine through approved applications and certificates, most notably the UAE's Al Hosn app and Bahrain's BeAware app.

Passengers can also save their PCR test results on the two apps.
