Travellers to the UK from the UAE have to go into quarantine from Tuesday after the British government changed its list of countries with a travel corridor as well as changing rules to enforce a negative PCR test 3 days before travel.

The UK Transport Ministry said that from 4am on Tuesday, people travelling from the UAE will need to be isolated for 10 days, unless they have an exemption.

Grant Shapps, the British Transport Minister, said on Twitter: "Ignoring the rules costs lives. Inconsiderate and selfish behaviour puts others at risk and is unfair to those following the rules to beat the virus. Stay at home. Save lives.”

The move came a day after Scotland introduced a similar restriction on people arriving from the UAE.

Last week, the UAE became the world's second highest vaccinator while Dubai reduced quarantine for 10 days for specific cases and Abu Dhabi added Qatar to it's quarantine-free 'green list'.
