Namibians, along with South Africans and citizens of at least 10 other African countries, will once again be able to enter the United Arab Emirates from Saturday 29 January, after being barred from the country for two months. Business Insider reports that Emirates, which has faced fierce criticism for extending its suspension of flights out of South Africa – while still selling tickets – has yet to confirm its return date but Ethiopian Airlines has issued a statement explaining that they have been authorized to fly passengers from Namibia, South Africa, and 15 other countries to Dubai as of Saturday subject to certain Covid-19 testing requirements.
