The Egyptian embassy in the UAE will operate exceptional flights to bring home nationals stranded there as of May 13, the Ministry of Manpower said on Monday.
This came in a report which Manpower Minister Mohammed Safaan received on Monday from the Egyptian embassy, according to Spokesman for the Manpower Ministry Haitham Saad el Din.
The flights will bring back the nationals who registered their data at the embassy, including visa holders as well as those with expired visas.
All the returnees will spend a quarantine period of 14 days at students hostel at state expense.
Meanwhile another flight will be operated by Air Cairo on May 19 to bring a number of stranded Egyptian nationals in Sudan back home, Egyptian Ambassador in Khartoum Hossam Eissa said Monday.
In statements to MENA, Eissa urged Egyptian expats wishing to return home to promptly complete their booking arrangements through the airline's address declared by the embassy.
The decision to run the fourth flight has been taken due to the overwhelming demand on the first two flights, which departed from Khartoum airport to Egypt on May 5 and 8, and the third one which is scheduled for Wednesday.
The flight coming from London will land at Marsa Alam International Airport on Tuesday, while the Red Sea resort will receive the Washington flight on Wednesday.
