Not all inbound passengers to Dubai are required to submit a Covid-19 negative test report, the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority (DCAA) has clarified.
This came as the authority denied “false information being circulated on some media and news websites concerning the required procedures for travel to Dubai”.
According to a list of guidelines posted by Emirates, passengers must carry a negative PCR test certificate if:
Their point of origin is one of the countries or airports listed below:
- Russian Federation
USA – Dallas Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (IAH), Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO), Fort Lauderdale (FLL) and Orlando (MCO), including passengers originating from California, Florida and Texas connecting to an Emirates flight to Dubai.
> If they travelled from the points of origin listed above to another destination and took a connecting Emirates flight to Dubai.
“All other passengers can take a Covid-19 PCR test 96 hours before their flight and bring their negative test certificate with them when they travel. A PCR test is also available on arrival in Dubai, if you haven’t taken one in your home country (excluding travellers arriving from the countries above, who must have a negative PCR test certificate to be accepted on the flight),” Emirates said.
