As of this writing, the regular visa requirements apply to Yemeni nationals, the current situation notwithstanding. Yemeni nationals are non-GCC nationals, and so must apply for a tourist visa if they wish to visit. To live in the UAE, they need an offer of employment to receive a residence permit. No special requirements or concessions are in place for Yemenis.
On the Saudi side, it is a different matter. There is a huge Yemeni population in Saudi Arabia, and I read somewhere that the Saudi government is granting extensions to Yemenis already in the Kingdom, but am not sure about the details. Your friends should follow Yemeni local news to see the updates about traveling/living in Saudi.
If they wish to leave Yemen, they should look for a job in the UAE and once they find one, I think their paperwork will be processed normally.
If they have a bit of money saved and can live without working at least for a few months, they can come to Egypt without a pre-arrival visa and live relatively cheaply.
