Dubai to reopen its borders for tourist arrivals in July

In all likelihood, Dubai will start welcoming tourists once again in the beginning of July 2020 after putting a stop on tourist arrivals due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

According to the latest statement given by Helal Al Marri, Director General of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing, Dubai reopen slowly and it could be delayed till September on the basis of global trends.

Dubai is highly dependent on tourism, retail and trade for revenue generation. On Sunday, the emirate of Dubai said that it has removed the lockdown on two highly populated commercial districts of low-wage migrant workers after the UAE relaxed nationwide Coronavirus curfews during the last weekend.

On Friday, Dubai shortened its UAE-wide 24-hour lockdown to the 10 PM to 6 AM curfew. The same measure has been implemented in Al Ras and Naif districts, which were sealed off to control the spread of COVID-19.

Reportedly, the decision was taken by the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management as no new COVID-19 cases were reported in the two districts in the last two days.

More than 10300 persons have reported COVID-19 infection in the UAE and 76 people have lost their lives, which is the second highest number in the Gulf nations after Saudi Arabia.

On Friday, Dubai permitted dine-in cafés and restaurants to restart their operations with 30 percent staff. Shopping malls have also been allowed to open partially. Places of public gathering like mosques, cinemas and playgrounds will remain shut.
