Emirati not denied entry into UAE after Thailand trip
A video which has been
doing the rounds on social media recently has elicited a response from the
Department of Health in Dubai.
In a statement posted on their
Instagram handle, the authority denied rumours that an Emirati man has been
denied entry to the UAE after traveling to Thailand for medical treatment.
The authority assured citizens that
the video was completely false and misrepresented what happened in reality.
"The health of our citizens is our
top priority. We ensure that they can access all levels of medical assistance
should they so require.
"We want to make sure our citizens
are happy, healthy and well cared for."
