Going back to UAE? Here’s the list of licensed Covid-19 testing laboratories in Philippines


Dubai has recently lifted some of the travel restriction by opening the airport to expats with a valid residence visa, and just recently, to foreign on tourist and visit visa. 

However, returning Filipinos and those will be coming from the Philippines to Dubai on visit visa need to secure a Covid-19 negative test result before they’re allowed to board an aircraft. 

Covid-19 tests, according to a travel advisory posted on the Emirates airline website, shall be carried out by the accredited laboratories. 

The Global Filipino Magazine sought advice from Dubai-based travel agency Airlink International on the matter. 

Retail Sales Manager Geoffrey Salatan shared a link to a list of licensed Covid-19 testing laboratories across the Philippines. The link, which is under the Department of Health, according to Salatan, was also shared by a representative from the Philippine Airlines (PAL). 

As of July 8, there are some 80 laboratories listed including from Quezon City, Malolos, Marawi, Albay, Tacloban, Tagum, among others.
