Arabian countries may become one of the leading outbound travel destinations in 2021/22 winter season

OTM 2021: Arabian Countries online fair will run from 2 to 13 of August. Profi.Travel media holding is the organizer of this event that will become the key for the outbound travel market during winter season 21/22.
"Arabian countries' travel market is probably one of the few stable destinations.The countries of the region are showing positive dynamics in the tourism recovery, this gives reasons for restrained optimism. While travel inbound policy of Southeast Asia stays very cautious, we can assume the Middle East will remain among the main destinations for organized tourist flow for winter 21/22 season", says Profi.Travel CEO Alexey Vengin.
How Arab countries open for tourists

This month several things have happened which reinforce the positive trend.

Starting July 1, the emirate of Abu Dhabi will end mandatory quarantine protocols for travelers from other countries. At the moment all the tourists from countries that are not on the green list are required to quarantine for 10 days. Russia's on the green list starting from April. The entry rules of Abu Dhabi will be similar to the current ones of neighboring Dubai.

Another country of the region, Saudi Arabia, plans to reopen to foreign tourists soon.
The report on the website of the Embassy of the Russian Federation to the Kingdom informs that effective on May 20, foreign citizens will be allowed to enter the country without quarantine. They will be required to submit a negative PCR test certificate within 72 hours departing for the country and a valid health insurance policy covering COVID-19 before and upon arrival in the Kingdom.

The entry by tourist visas is banned for now, however the Saudi Tourism Authority CEO Fahd Hamidaddin declared at Arabian Travel Market 2021 that inbound tourism resumption in Saudi Arabia will be announced "very soon".

Air companies show interest in the destination

Amid good news, Russian air companies are preparing for their flight program expansion. A large number of UAE flight permits have recently been issued. Rossiya Airlines is allowed to start flying to Dubai from 10 Russian cities, to Sharjah and Ras al-Khaimah from 7 cities.
