Travel Alert: All You Need to Know About Dubai’s Latest Flight Procedures and How They Affect You
From tomorrow, June 23rd, Dubai will allow its residents to finally travel abroad to any of its approved destinations, while complying with the official procedures established by the destination country for testing and quarantine. Upon their arrival at Dubai airports, a PCR test will be administered and residents must stay home until their PCR results are out. They will also be expected to adhere to a 14-day quarantine in case the test result is positive.
Dubai has also announced that it will start welcoming tourists on July 7th, who will be required to register all their details on the COVID-19 DXB app, take a PCR test prior to their travel date, and if this hasn’t been done, a PCR test will be carried out for them upon their arrival at Dubai airports.
More so, Dubai residents who were not able to return to the UAE recently will be able to do so from today, June 22nd, through the official websites of the airlines operating in Dubai, and by completing a Health Declaration Form before leaving their destination. Residents will also be expected to sign a declaration stating their willingness to bear the costs of examination and treatment in case they contract COVID-19.
For all cases, airlines have the right to deny travelers if they show any coronavirus symptoms.
Although it might seem like there are too many rules for travel, we’re glad that we’ll finally be able to see our loved ones living abroad.
