by Martin

COVID-19 restrictions easing

Effective Saturday February 26, fully vaccinated travellers coming to Dubai will no longer be required to present a negative PCR test 48 hours before travel. Vaccinated passengers will be required to present their approved vaccination certificate instead.

What about if I’m not vaccinated?

Dubai PCR requirements will remain in place for unvaccinated travellers, you will need to provide a negative PCR test conducted within 48 hours of their flight’s departure. Airlines are very strict with the timing of PCR taken so ensure you book your test within the necessary time frame.
