This week, an Emirati airline published a promotional video from the urban “Top of the World“, celebrating the removal of the Emirates from the red list for entering the United Kingdom, and raising it to the Amber List, associated with entering the country with less complicated procedures.
According to the British authorities, the UAE will officially enter the Amber list by 4 am on Sunday, August 8, GMT, reported by The Sun.

In the video, a woman dressed as a flight attendant appeared while standing at the top of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, the tallest building in the world to date, carrying banners that expressed the UAE’s gratitude for the British decision.
“The transfer of the UAE to the British (amber) list made us feel that we are on top of the world,” the banners shown by the hostess said in succession.
The clip appears normal at the beginning until the hostess finishes displaying the phrases she carries in front of the flying camera that flew away from her, to show her in a breathtaking scene as if she was actually standing on top of the world.
While some thought that the video was a composite, or that it was filmed using some optical tricks, its heroine confirmed that the clip is real and that her role was one of the most wonderful things she did in her career.
“This is, without a doubt, one of the most amazing and exciting adventures I’ve ever taken,” said adventurer and skydiving champion Nicole Smith Ludvik, via her Instagram account.
The British government classifies entry permits to its lands according to lists ranging from red, amber, and green, according to the epidemiological situation of the country of entry.
In contrast to the red list, the amber list gives travelers the advantage of entering British territory without having to pay and being subject to government quarantine in one of the hotels approved by the country for a period of 10 days.
The British authorities require those coming from the amber list countries to isolate themselves for a period of 10 days since entering British territory, and it is possible to reduce that period to five days for those who show a negative test result for Corona infection.
The amber list includes a number of Arab countries, including Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Syria, and Yemen.
It is expected that Qatar and Bahrain will accompany the UAE by entering the list at the same time, at 4 am on Sunday, August 8, GMT.
