Emirates has made many such comments but due to regulations changing any moment, many travelers were denied boarding. To which, Nishit Shaw and other established travel agents had asked us not to trust them until the information is updated on their official website.

In an online chat session hosted on their website, it was said that vaccination is not mandatory and that the same information would be updated on their official website too.
