Travel Ban Extended Once Again on the UAE, 6 Other Countries

According to Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, the Inter-Agency Task Force in the Philippines has been asked to evaluate processes and recommend testing and quarantine procedures for travelers from the seven nations, the Khaleej Times reported.

The Philippine government has been organizing repatriation planes to assist trapped Filipino expats in the UAE, giving priority to medical patients and pregnant women without health insurance, families with children, and those with expired/expiring visas.

Filipinos seeking repatriation should contact the Philippine missions ( for the Philippine Embassy in Abu Dhabi and for the Philippine Consulate-General in Dubai).

“The embassy and consulate are requesting Filipinos to shelve plans to travel home unless absolutely necessary,” the missions said in a previous statement.
