Visitors to the Gulf state will still be required to comply with local regulations, such as providing proof of vaccination.
However, starting November 1, it will no longer require a PCR test 48 hours before arrival or a lateral flow test the day before.

“It makes life so much easier and less stressful for everyone in the end,” said Gerwyn Jones.

The Wales supporter from Gaerwen, Anglesey, had already scheduled and paid for an unnecessary test.

“I decided to order the tests in case there were more postal strikes,” he said.

“Obviously I’m not happy that I had to pay, now it’s clear they won’t be needed.”

The decision to discontinue visitor testing is being made because “the number of Covid-19 cases continues to fall,” according to the country’s health ministry.
Officials added that visitors should practice good hand hygiene, get tested if they have Covid symptoms, and live a healthy lifestyle.
