Under Tier 4 rules, you can only travel abroad if you have a legally permitted reason to.

And travelling for leisure purposes isn’t currently one of the permitted reasons.

What’s more, countries worldwide are currently banning British travel because of fears of the mutant COVID strain spreading.

However, Dubai has yet to close its borders to the UK.

And Jess was only last in Dubai back in October, when lockdown restrictions were temporarily lifted in the UK.

Meanwhile, several celebrities have been spotted in Dubai over the last few days.

Amber Gill, who is in Dubai, claims she had no idea Tier 4 ‘was a thing.’

The 2019 Love Island winner, 23, took to her own Instagram stories to clear things up.

Sharing in view of her 2.7 million plus followers, she claimed: “Just want to put it out there that I had no idea Tier 4 was a thing.

“The flight here was booked way before. I thought the only changes were being made on the 16th meaning I was still allowed to travel for work.”
