According to government rules for those living in a Tier 4 area, individuals are not allowed to leave or be outside of the place they are living at — unless they have a reasonable excuse.
They cannot meet other people indoors, including over the Christmas period, unless they live with them, or they are part of one’s support bubble. Outdoors, they are only permitted to meet one person from another household.
The measures were put into effect starting Sunday, December 20.
The embassy further called on UAE citizens in the United Kingdom to register for the ‘Tawajudi’ or ‘My Presence’ service, which facilitates communication between the UAE’s missions and citizens abroad in the event of crises and emergencies.
The mission stressed the need for citizens to communicate with the embassy in case of emergency at 00442075811281 or the call center at +97180044444.
