Thermal screenings are installed in the areas to monitor incoming passenger/traveler’s body temperature if they have the new coronavirus symptoms. The type of thermal screenings the Dubai Airports are using is the non-intrusive ones that all passengers arriving go through.

In a Tweet by Dubai Media Office, it reported that Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police Headquarters and Dubai’s Crisis and Disaster Management Team Major General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri said that all concerned authorities are working around the clock to implement precautionary measures against COVID-19 and ensure safety and protection for the public.

‘Enhanced screening measure’ is only applied for travelers who entered in the UAE from high-risk countries. Transit passengers are not required to through this scheme.

Al Marri said added that the enhanced screening includes a swab test answering a series of health questionnaires. This procedure may add 2-3 hours to the journey time of the traveler.

After undergoing the test, travelers will be freed to continue their journey and will then be contacted only if any further intervention is needed, such as reporting to a medical facility or self-quarantine.

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
