Covid-19 safety measures

In an earlier statement to Khaleej Times, Expo 2020 Dubai had said visitors "are not currently required to provide proof of vaccination to enter the Expo site."

"However, vaccination is strongly encouraged and vaccinated individuals will still be required to comply with precautionary measures, including wearing of masks, social distancing and regular washing and sanitisation of hands," it read.

Expo 2020 has implemented a far-reaching programme of precautionary measures to ensure the safety of all visitors, participants and staff, working in close collaboration with the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and Dubai Health Authority.

These include sanitisation stations across the site, mandatory face-mask wearing and the implementation of social-distancing regulations. Building on the UAE's successful vaccination programme, Expo 2020 is also offering free Covid-19 vaccinations to its workforce and all official participants and their staff.
