GUIDELINES WHEN TRAVELING TO DUBAI
BEFORE YOU TRAVEL
Please check the following before you undergo any travel to Dubai:
Ensure you meet entry visa requirements to visit the UAE. You can check if you need
a visa HERE.
All passengers arriving to Dubai from any point of origin (including GCC countries)
must hold a negative PCR test certificate, for which the test must be taken no more
than 72 hours prior to the time of departure. As announced on 19 June 2021 and
effective from 23 June 2021, travellers from certain countries must hold a negative
PCR test, taken no more than 48 hours prior to the time of departure. Please see the
following links for a list of countries which this is now applicable for:
Negative COVID-19 certificates must be printed in English or Arabic; PCR
certificates in other languages are acceptable if they can be validated at the
originating station (the date and time of the test must be detailed). The printed
certificate must have a valid QR code. No hand written, SMS or digital certificates
will be accepted.
You may be required to take another test at Dubai Airports upon arrival if
travelling from select destinations or if you show symptoms of COVID-19 on arrival.
All travellers must check the country requirements from which they are departing.
Children under the age of 12 and passengers with a severe or moderate disability are
exempt from the PCR test.
Ensure you have medical travel insurance with international coverage that covers
COVID-19 before travelling.
If you are travelling with Emirates airline or FlyDubai and have purchased your
ticket after 1 December 2020, you will automatically benefit from additional
multi-risk travel insurance provided by AIG Travel or NEXtCARE. Please see the
