Expo 2020 Visitors Not Required to Get Vaccine

Reem Al Hashimy, director general of Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau and UAE Minister of State for International Co-operation, told Bloomberg and CNBC that the event will not be cancelled and is hopeful that strong inoculation programmes across the globe will improve the situation. She also told Bloomberg‘s Daybreak that all of the Expo 2020 Dubai workforce will be vaccinated, but it’s not a requirement for visitors.

“We are hopeful that in the next five months we are going to see a better and stronger overall picture,” Reem Al Hashimy told CNBC. 

About Expo 2020 Dubai and the UK and the US travel bans, Al Hashimy said: “Yes, yes…we’re in regular conversations with them to understand how we can change the current trajectory.

“They have changed some of their requirements, they’re concerned about some issues that we’ve already been able to alleviate. The UK was in complete lockdown and it’s only been three months, look at them now they’re doing so much better.”

Expo 2020 Dubai expect 25 million global visitors across the six month event, which begins on October 1, 2021. “The UAE is optimistic but realistic,” Al Hashimy explained. “Across 182 days, we remain confident that we will be able to attract that number.”
