Authorities in the UK have lifted a ban on flights from the UAE to Scotland.

From 4:00 am on April 9, direct flights from the UAE to Scotland will be allowed, according to the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

However, flights from the UAE to England, Wales and Northern Ireland will continue to be prohibited.

British and Irish nationals, as well as third-country nationals with UK residency rights, arriving in England from the UAE will still be required to quarantine in a hotel.

Meanwhile, other visitors to the UK who have been in or transited through the UAE in the previous 10 days will not be permitted entry.
