UAE: New PCR testing rule implemented at Dubai International Airport

As part of its efforts to limit the spread of Covid-19, Dubai International Airport will now carry out random PCR tests on passengers arriving on some flights. The new measure includes travellers arriving in the city from countries not on screening lists.

Passengers arriving from certain countries such as Brazil, India, Bangladesh, Russia, and Pakistan, for example, must undergo mandatory testing. Passengers from a few other countries, like the UK, also underwent testing.

PCR tests are mandatory for the flights mentioned on the Emirates website. However, as part of the extra precautionary measures, Dubai Airport may conduct random tests upon arrival for certain flights.
