São Paulo – The Embassy of Brazil in the United Arab Emirates has prepared a guide for Brazilians who will be watching the FIFA Club World Cup , which will take place from February 3 to 12 in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the Arab country. Brazil’s Palmeiras will take part in the tournament, and it is expected that thousands of their fans will come to watch the matches in stadiums across the emirate.
The guide provides a series of practical and valuable information for those who will travel, specific procedures for entering the country due to COVID-19[female[feminine Tipping restrictions on transportation and legislation. “The idea was to contribute to the initial orientations for Brazilians who will come here to the UAE, especially to Abu Dhabi,” the minister-counsellor at the embassy, Leandro Vieira Silva, told ANBA.
The idea for the guide came from Glauco Iervolino, a Brazilian living in the United Arab Emirates who contacted the embassy with a suggestion, inspired by material prepared by Brazilian diplomacy for the Copa Libertadores da América final in Uruguay the last year. The guide was designed by the consular team of the Brazilian Embassy in Abu Dhabi with the coordination of Minister-Counsellor Silva.
The manual contains the first part with relevant information before leaving Brazil, such as visa requirements, flights, language, local plug voltage, driver’s license, accepted payment forms and currencies in the Arab country. The second part is about COVID-19 testing and vaccine requirements, associated applications, health insurance and quarantine to enter the United Arab Emirates and stadiums.
The guide also contains information on transport options between Dubai and Abu Dhabi and some local laws, including alcohol consumption and social behavior. The document also contains guidelines for possible problems during the stay, such as infection with COVID-19 or loss of passport. Diplomat Silva suggests fans follow any updates from the country on requirements related to the coronavirus pandemic.
“From the information I have read in the Brazilian press, there is great enthusiasm from Palmeiras fans to honor the team in another Fifa Club World Cup, so a large influx of tourists is expected here,” the Minister-Counsellor said. As well as watching the matches, he thinks the Brazilians will tour the UAE and suggests visiting Expo 2020 Dubai, which has a Brazil pavilion and runs until the end of March.
