The United Arab Emirates on Thursday withdrew its requirement demanding all Pakistani travelers to produce a Covid-19 vaccination certificate duly attested by the Foreign Office and the UAE Embassy in Islamabad.
“The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Islamabad would like to clarify that the vaccination certificate of Covid-19 is not currently considered a requirement for travel to the UAE,” the UAE Embassy in Pakistan said in a tweet.
Earlier, the UAE authorities had conveyed to the government to require all visitors from August 1 to get their vaccination certificates issued by the National Database and Registration Authority (Nadra) attested by the FO and the UAE embassy before proceeding with other paperwork.
The development came after the FO’s discussion with the embassy concerned on the matter. In its daily briefing, the FO spokesperson said that authorities have received some new guidelines from the UAE Embassy and they were in contact with them on the issue.
