The Emirates Schools Establishment announced that expat teachers are allowed to travel during the spring break which began on Sunday, April 4 for a period of 11 days and will end on April 15. However, they have to take into account the necessity to be inside the country to start work on the first day of the third semester, which will begin on April 18, or bear the consequences of non-compliance.

The travelling teacher bears the administrative and legal consequences, including salary suspension or termination of service, in the event of interruption from work and in case he stays outside the country for two weeks or more without a sufficient legal justification.

The Establishment pointed out that the travelling teacher must inform his principal of the reason for the travel, his destination, and the period he will spend outside the country. He must also do a COVID-19 test upon his arrival in the country, send the result to his principal and in case the result is positive, he is not allowed to go to work. According to the Establishment, the school principal must inform the Personnel Department of the names of teachers or administrators who wish to travel during the vacation period and the names of those who have been absent from work.
