Dubai May Begin to Open for Tourism by July

Dubai May Begin to Open for Tourism by July - Coming Soon in UAE
28 April 2020

The process of opening Dubai for tourists will be gradual, it may partially begin in July and be continued until September.

According to Helal Al Marri, director general of Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in a recent interview with Bloomberg, the process of opening such a major global tourist center will be carried out gradually, taking into account current trends in the development of the situation around the world.

Tourism is one of the central sectors of the economy of Dubai, generating revenues of hundreds of billions of dirhams annually. Now tourist visas for entry into the country have been suspended, such a measure has been taken since March 17 to prevent the spread of coronavirus and maintain public safety.

But the decision to resume the flow of tourists is quite complicated and cannot be taken at once. When making a decision, both the situation inside UAE and throughout the world will be taken into account. As the Department’s director general said, “Many countries remain closed and it’s more about the bilateral discussion.”

The first steps to open the emirate for tourist activity can be taken within a few months, but the process can stretch until the fall, depending on the current situation for each individual period.
