Coronavirus: Dubai eases travel restrictions for its residents coming from other countries including India
Dubai has eased travel restrictions for its residents coming from many other countries including India. However, it is mandatory for such people to take both doses of the UAE-approved Kovid-19 Vaccines. This information has been given in the news in the media. According to the news of Gulf News, the Supreme Committee on Crisis and Disaster Management in Dubai announced an update of Dubai's travel protocol regarding travelers coming from South Africa, Nigeria and India. This committee was headed by Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Makhtoum.
According to this, only such travelers coming to Dubai from India will need a valid residential visa who have taken both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine validated by the UAE. According to the report, the four vaccines that the UAE government has recognized include Sinopharma, Pfizer-Biontech, Sputnik-V and Oxford-AstraZeneca.
About 30 lakh people had to run away from home
At the same time, the UN refugee agency said that despite the worldwide movement of people being disrupted due to the Kovid-19 crisis, about 3 million people had to flee their homes last year. These people were forced to do so because of war, violence, persecution and human rights violations and other reasons. The UNHRC said in its latest 'Global Trends' report that the total number of displaced people has increased to 824 million worldwide, which is almost the same as the population of Germany and this is a new record since World War II.
Filippo Grandi, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, said conflict and the impact of climate change in places such as Mozambique, Ethiopia's Tigre region and Africa's Sahel region are among the main reasons for the displacement of refugees in 2020. For the ninth year in a row, there has been an annual increase in the number of forced displaced people. "In a year when we were all confined to our homes in our cities, communities, about 3 million people actually had to be displaced because they had no other option," said Grandi.
