It borders Oman and Saudi Arabia and has maritime borders in the Persian Gulf with Qatar and Iran.

The History of The United Arab Emirates UAE

Historically the United Arab Emirates was a domain of individual Arab clans and families, the region now comprising the (UAE) emirates also has been influenced by Persian culture owing to its close proximity to Iran, and the spread of  Islam. Its porous maritime borders have for centuries invited migrants and traders from elsewhere.

It is a Muslim country with Shariah law governing the states and one of the most important and influential countries in the Middle East.

In the 18th century, Portugal and the Netherlands extended their holdings in the region but retreated with the growth of British naval power there; following a series of truces with Britain in the 19th century, the emirates united to form the Trucial States (also called Trucial Oman or the Trucial Sheikhdoms). The states gained autonomy following World War II (1939–45) when the trucial states of Bahrain and Qatar declared independent statehood.

Key facts about the UAE

 

The emirates comprise a mixed environment of rocky desert, coastal plains and wetlands, and waterless mountains. 

The port city of Dubai, located at the base of the mountainous Musandam Peninsula, is the capital of the emirate of Dubai and is one of the region’s most vital commercial and financial centres, housing hundreds of multinational corporations in a forest of skyscrapers.

UAE states, monarchy, political system and administration

Travelling to United Arab Emirates is usually very safe. It is one of the most developed nations in the world. However, the recent coronavirus breakout has sparked concerns when travelling to the region.

The Region is rolling out a mass vaccination programme. However, despite that some countries have placed the UAE on high risk list and vice versa. 

Currently the UAE has a limited air travel policy into the region. 

Here is the Official UAE Health and prevention website 

  1. To prevent the spread of infectious disease health practitioners suggest you catch all your sneezes in a tissue and dispose of it immediately.
  2. Use hand sanitising gel regularly
  3. Use a face mask when in public
  4. Report to emergency services if you have flu like symptoms

 

So far the Coronavirus outbreak has not been contained. The World Health Organisation (WHO) is warning of pandemic outbreak as many nations including Italy, Iran and China struggle to stem the spreading of the deadly disease.
