Current location: Dubai, UAE
The New Zealand government has begun deporting tourists who did not have sufficient self isolation plans. Despite the campervan company confirming their vehicles can be used for self isolation and that I think my plans would suffice, I don’t have to risk the long term consequences deportation would bring, and so I shall not.
This narrows options considerably: stay in Dubai on a 30 day visit visa or return to Canada.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has warned all Canadians overseas to return to Canada while flights are still available, and when doing so to go into 14-day self isolation.
This adventure has come to a halt before it really began. Decision time.
