Residents going back to UAE won’t be allowed to board flights without negative Covid-19 result

-

All returning UAE residents are advised to complete a Covid-19 test within 72 hours of take-off and present a negative result before they’re allowed to board the flights. 

According to a new rule announced by the UAE government, those residents who do not have Covid-19 negative results taken within 72 hours of take-off will not be allowed to board the aircraft. 

The new rule is part of the preventive measures and key guidelines announced by the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship for residents on Sunday for residents with valid residence visas and currently stuck outside the country. 

The test should be carried out by accredited laboratories. The list of accredited laboratories can be accessed through the smartservices.ica.gov.ae. 

Meanwhile, for residents who are coming from countries without accredited laboratories, Covid-19 tests can be conducted upon arrival back in the UAE. They will have two options to quarantine themselves–either at home or in an institutional quarantine. 

All costs will be shouldered by these individuals.
