The UAE is now connected to the EU Digital Covid Certificate system, the European Union announced on Saturday.

This means fully-vaccinated UAE residents, who hold a vaccination certificate issued by relevant authorities, can soon travel to the European Union member states without restrictions.

The UAE is one of the first countries in the Mena region to achieve this alongside Lebanon.

"This will make travel between the EU and the UAE easier as certificates issued by the UAE are now equivalent to the EU Covid Certificate," the EU said on Twitter.

The European Union has made available its COVID-19 passport for all EU citizens and residents, as well as for specific categories of travellers from third countries, since July 1 according to an update posted on the official Schengen Visa website.

However, it is up to the member states to decide whether they are ready to start accepting travellers, the European Commission said.
