Dubai visa Requirement

Dubai: All inbound passengers to Dubai, including those transiting via the emirate, must hold COVID-19 negative PCR test report with immediate effect, Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) announced on Sunday.

The real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction test, often abbreviated as PCR test, is accepted as the most accurate test for coronavirus infection.

The test is considered to be valid for 96 hours before departure from the airport of origin [from where the passenger begins the journey], according to DCAA.

This was informed to aircraft operators conducting flight operations to and from Dubai Airports (Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport) in an information bulletin issued on Sunday that has been seen by Gulf News.

The bulletin related to flight restrictions due to coronavirus said the aircraft operators must meet the updated conditions with immediate effect.
