The new regulations were announced late on Wednesday as the United Arab Emirates (UAE), made up of seven emirates, has seen an increase in daily cases for the past three weeks.This UAENo breakdown data is given for each emirate. On Wednesday, 2,179 new infections were recorded, up from 1,229 on May 17.

Visitors must prove that they have been vaccinated or tested negative recently through the country’s COVID-19 app, which displays the individual’s vaccination and testing history.
If the person has been vaccinated or the test result is negative, the mobile app will display green. People who have not been vaccinated need to be tested every three days to keep their green status. People who are fully vaccinated get it every 30 days.
The UAE announced last month that from June 6th, participation in live events and social events, including weddings and bars, will be limited to those who can prove that they have been vaccinated.
