Dubai said Sunday it will begin allowing tourists into the Middle East business hub from July 7 for the first time since the United Arab Emirates imposed travel restrictions because of the coronavirus.
Emirates grounded its passenger fleet and cut thousands of jobs as it dealt with the fallout from the pandemic.
