Dubai: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation is urging Emirati citizens in Oman to return before Oman closes its land, sea and air borders for one week, from Tuesday morning.

The travel alert follows Oman’s decision to close its land and sea borders and suspends commercial flights over fears about a new strain of COVID-19.

The ministry urged Emiratis wishing to return before the closure of borders.
