Dubai, one of the world’s leading tourist destinations and air hubs, will reopen to international visitors from 7th July.
However, all arrivals will be required to produce a medical certificate showing a negative COVID-19 test result within the past four days or undergo a mandatory PCR test at the Dubai airports.
Anyone who tests positive will be isolated “at an institutional facility provided by the government for 14 days at their own expense”. Every passenger will also have their temperature taken on arrival.
Meanwhile Dubai citizens and residents will be allowed to travel abroad from 23rd June.
The emirate has been gradually re-opening since the end of May. Shopping malls and private sector businesses are now allowed to operate at full capacity. Pools and beaches are also open and water sports activities permitted (all with regulations in place).
