The UAE will reopen all land, sea and air ports with Qatar from Saturday, January 9.
The advisory was issued by WAM.
The move follows the re-establishment of diplomatic ties with Qatar after the four Gulf states resolved their nearly four-year-long dispute with its neighbour.
Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and Egypt had cut ties with Qatar in 2017. But the US-negotiated Al Ula Declaration signed last Tuesday put a definitive end to the crisis.
UAE’s Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr Anwar Gargash said on Thursday that trade and transport could resume with Qatar within a week.
“We are extremely, extremely supportive and positive about the declaration,” said Dr. Gargash at a virtual media briefing.
