With Dubai‘s reopening for tourists, the emirate has received the Safe Travels Stamp from the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC), which validates the stringent global hygiene and safety protocols the city has put in place to ensure the health and safety of tourists and passengers.

Dubai Airport has put in place globally-benchmarked measures to secure the health and wellbeing of passengers, prevent the spread of the virus and provide the highest levels of safety at its facilities, according to the Dubai Civil Aviation Authority.

Tourists are given the option to show a negative PCR test  (valid for 96 hours) upon their arrival to Dubai or carry out a free test at Dubai airports. Additionally, all travellers, including both tourists and returning residents, must:

    • Adhere to all official measures and requirements established by the Dubai Government and other countries before traveling and after returning to Dubai
    • Disclose any symptoms before traveling by filling in the Health Declaration Form provided by airlines
    • Ensure they have international health insurance coverage before traveling
    • Residents and tourists will bear the costs of examination and treatment, in the event they are infected with COVID-19
    • Register details in the COVID-19 DXB app
    • Take precautionary measures and self-monitor for any symptoms of COVID19.
