Visit visas are now allowed to enter Dubai; here are things that you should know

-

Starting July 7, Dubai is opening its airport for tourist visa holders. And if you’re planning to visit or look for a job here, there are a couple of things that you should consider. 

The new decision was taken under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Ministry of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and the follow-up of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of The Executive Council, by the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management headed by Sheikh Mansour bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. 

All international tourist visa holders are required to download the Covid-19 DXB app. They will be required to enter their details. The app facilitates easy coordination and communication with health authorities if they experience Covid-19 symptoms. 

They will also be required to fill-out the ‘Health Declaration Form’ before they get to travel to Dubai. They also need to have a valid health insurance in order to enter the emirate. 

If a tourist or visit visa holder shows Covid-19 symptoms, the airline has the right to refuse boarding. 

Before their scheduled flight, a maximum validity of four days or 96 hours, they need to undergo a PCR test. 

As part of the protocols in the Dubai airports, all arriving passengers on tourists or visit visas are required to show proof that they are not infected with the virus. If one cannot provide a proof, he or she will undergo a PCR test at the airport. 

All passengers arriving at the airport will undergo thermal screening and if one is suspected to have Covid-19 symptoms, officials at the airport have the right to retest the tourist to ensure he or she is free of the virus. 

Those tourist and visit visas who test positive for Covid-19 are required to register their details on the Covid-19 DXB app and isolate themselves at an institutional facility provided by the government for 14 days at their own expense.
