On 9 September 2020, the Royal Thai Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Consulate-General in Dubai repatriated the 14th batch of 167 Thai nationals in the UAE affected by COVID-19 back to their homeland, bringing 2,172 Thai nationals in total back home.
This batch of 167 nationals has been tested a PCR COVID-19 (Nasal Swab Test) by the medical institutions in the UAE with negative results for COVID-19. Moreover, all nationals received medical check from Dr. Sunil Pawa, a Thai-Indian medical doctor, who has kindly supported the mission by conducting health examination and issuing fit-to-fly medical certificate to all passengers at the Embassy.
In addition, the Embassy and the Consulate-General have also facilitated a travel to Thailand of 29 non-Thai nationals (22 UAE residents and tourists, 7 transit passengers) by this special flight.
We will still try our utmost to make the dream of the remaining Thais stranded in the UAE to be back home come true as soon as possible. The Embassy would like to express our thanks and appreciation to those authorities concerned both in Thailand and in the UAE for their kind and supportive favor for the success of these repatriation missions and fervently hope to receive the same or even better cooperation in the future.
