Members in or travelling to Oman or the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the coming days should expect potential disruption to travel due to adverse weather conditions. The UAE's National Center of Meteorology and Seismology (NCMS) has forecast heavy rainfall and strong winds in Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah and Ras al-Khaimah emirates until 25 January. Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) has forecast thunderstorms throughout much of northern Oman, including the capital Muscat, until 25 January. While no disruption has been reported at international airports in either country, travellers should maintain flexible itineraries and reconfirm the status of flights prior to setting out, to minimise inconvenience.



• Monitor the NCMS's website if in or travelling to the UAE, or the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) website if in or travelling to Oman, for up-to-date information on prevailing weather conditions, and be prepared to adjust itineraries accordingly.

• We do not hold information on specific flights. Contact the relevant airport, your airline or travel agency directly for information on flight schedules before setting out.

• Do not attempt to cross flooded roads. If you come across one, find another route to your destination.

• Driving conditions significantly worsen during rain and dust storms. Exercise additional caution if self-driving.

• Avoid photographing or sharing views about bad weather conditions on social media. Such activity is viewed as being politically sensitive and may have legal ramifications.

• Monitor our travel security alerts for related developments.
