  • Turkey Government to extend nightly curfew by two hours from 20 May after increase in COVID-19 cases (Reuters, 18.05.2020)

    International restrictions:

    All international air traffic remains suspended until further notice; the ban also applies to transit flights via Abu Dhabi and Dubai. However, UAE-based air carriers are operating a limited number of inbound and outbound flights mainly to repatriate UAE nationals and foreign residents. National carrier Etihad Airways will resume a limited number of inbound flights to Abu Dhabi from 9 May exclusively for UAE citizens and foreign nationals holding valid UAE residency permits. Travellers must apply for an ICA approval number via the UAE Twajudi Resident service, which can be accessed on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, before booking their tickets. This unique number will allow travellers to make bookings exclusively through Etihad’s contact centre. All arriving passengers will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days. Entry restrictions The authorities implemented entry restrictions for non-UAE citizens, including foreign nationals holding valid residency visas who were currently out of the country and Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) citizens. While local media reports indicate that some exceptions have been made on a case-by-case basis since the restrictions came into effect, the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has requested such individuals to take the following steps: Travellers who are currently in their country of origin should contact the UAE diplomatic mission in their respective country for the required support and to streamline their return back to the UAE. Travellers who are currently outside the UAE for business should contact their employers in the UAE, as well as the UAE diplomatic mission in their host countries for the required support and to facilitate their return back to the UAE. Travellers who are on vacation should contact the UAE diplomatic mission in their host countries, for the required support to facilitate their return back to the UAE. Officials at Abu Dhabi airport have said that all flights are operating via the facility’s Terminal 1 until further notice. Flight suspensions Dubai-based airline Emirates will operate outbound flights to London Heathrow (United Kingdom), Frankfurt (Germany), Paris (France), Milan (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Chicago (United States of America), Toronto (Canada), Sydney and Melbourne (Australia) from 21 May. The Dubai-based carrier FlyDubai and Abu Dhabi-based Etihad Airways have also suspended or modified routes to and from UAE airports. Other measures Individuals are required to wear masks and observe social distancing when in public. Infractions are punishable via legal action. Officials had earlier closed beaches, cinemas, public parks and swimming pools until further notice – this remains in place. Residency visas and Emirates ID to be automatically extended for three months for free (only for those whose visa and ID expired from 1 March). In the Dubai emirate, a 24 hour remain-at-home directive has been rescinded. Since 24 April, this has now been relaxed to coincide with Ramadan – residents are now permitted to conduct movement between 06.00 and 22.00 without a permit; restrictions on movement between 22.00 and 06.00 remain in force and the only exceptions are for medical emergencies. Some metro service is due to recommence from 29 April. Restaurants, shopping malls and other retail outlets are allowed to open between 06.00 and 22.00. Other emirates seemingly remain under the initial 20.00 to 06.00 curfew regime, including Abu Dhabi. Trips to purchase food and medication and essential workers are exempt. In Abu Dhabi a movement permit is required to travel during the sterilisation hours (individuals can apply here). However, the above timing will change from 20 May, when the timing for the national sterilisation programme will change to 20.00-06.00, during which all individuals are required to stay indoor. The opening hours of shopping malls and retail shops will be 09.00-19.00. Blue-collar workers in Abu Dhabi are not allowed to leave the emirate until further notice; their internal movement is restricted to Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra. In addition, workers from other emirates are not allowed to enter into Abu Dhabi. Exceptions may apply to movement of workers operating in essential sectors and those with valid flight tickets on their way to the airport of departure. Any citizen/resident benefiting from repatriation flight will observe a compulsory 14-day home quarantine. Fines may be issued for those suspected of spreading information about COVID-19 which contradicts official statements, as well as neglecting social distancing requirements, driving with more than three people in a vehicle, and participating in social gatherings.
