As UAE eases travel curbs, Trichy-Dubai flights may resume

Trichy: After Kuwait eased Covid-19 protocols for passengers from other countries a few days back, which will come into effect from August, UAE has introduced new entry protocols for passengers from India and two other countries.

The move is expected to restore flights between Dubai and Trichy to pre-second wave times two months ago. The supreme committee of crisis and disaster management of Dubai has announced new protocol for passengers which will come into effect from June 23.

The move will benefit people from Tamil Nadu and Kerala the most who had returned during the second wave and were awaiting flights operations to resume to get back.

The urban primary health centre (UPHC) at Periya Milaguparai, close to the bus stand, has been designated exclusively to vaccinate people intending to make international travel. They will be vaccinated with Covishield and can get their second dose after 28 days at the UPHC. For others, the second dose is administered only after 84 days. After losing his job in Dubai during the second wave, S Kadarshah Mustafa, 50, from Lalgudi returned in April. “Considering my experience, my employer offered me employment visa a couple of weeks back, but I was unable to join because of travel restrictions,” he said. Passengers travelling to Dubai should get rapid PCR test four hours prior to their departure. They will also have to undergo another PCR test on arrival in Dubai. On arrival, passengers from India should undergo institutional quarantine until they receive their PCR test result, which is expected within 24 hours.
