The Smoking ban could be coming to the UAE!
Smokey restaurants will be a thing of the past...
The UAE is likely to implement the smoking ban from the end of this year according to the head of the Tobacco Control Programme at the Ministry of Health and Prevention.
The ban will see designated smoking areas in public places removed; including malls, restaurants and bars.
According to the World Health Organisation, the UAE is in the red zone because of its tobacco and smoking laws.
This is the first step from the country to change the current status.
