UAE health officials said Covishield vaccine is accepted for travel to Dubai. The country announced that UAE residents stranded in India can return to Dubai after flight resumes on June 23.

Those who have a valid residency visa and have received two doses of a UAE-approved vaccine are allowed to travel to the emirate.

The Dubai Health Authority confirmed that Covishield will be accepted.

“Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and Covishield are the same vaccine,” the authority said.

The Sinopharm, Pfizer-​BioNTech, Sputnik V and Oxford-AstraZeneca shots have been approved for use by the UAE.

The UAE suspended flights for most travellers from India on April 25.
