Dubai: PCR test for incoming passengers should be taken within 72 hours of travel


- Advertisment -

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management announced an update to travel protocols starting on Sunday, January 31 in a bid to ensure the safety of incoming travelers. 

Citizens arriving in Dubai will be required to do a PCR test only on arrival in Dubai regardless of the country they are coming from. Meanwhile, residents and GCC citizens, and visitors traveling to the emirate must do a pre-travel PCR test, regardless of where they’re coming from. 

“Arrivals from some countries (based on the Covid-19 situation there) may be required to undergo an additional test when landing in Dubai,” it noted. 

The validity of PCR tests for residents, GCC citizens, and visitors, however, has been reduced from 96 hours to 72 hours. 

For travelers departing from Dubai, a Rapid PCR or Rapid Antigen test will be available at the airport if their destination country requires it.
