Dubai will welcome tourists from 07 July
The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has announced that international visitors will be able to travel to Dubai from 07 July. Additionally, Dubai residents can return to the emirate from 22 June and travel internationally from 23 June.
The new protocols will be subject to COVID-19 precautionary measures. Any tourists travelling to Dubai will need to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 certificate (carried out a maximum of 96 hours before departure) ahead of their arrival, or undergo testing at the airport. It will be mandatory to complete a health declaration form and purchase international health insurance. Visitors will also be asked to download the COVID-19 DXB app. Airlines can refuse boarding to travellers showing signs of COVID-19, and in the event of a positive test, visitors will be asked to self-isolate for 14 days.
The Supreme Committee’s announcement also means that foreign nationals holding residency visas issued in Dubai can return to the emirate from 22 June, and Dubai residents and citizens can travel internationally from 23 June. Residents returning to Dubai must obtain approval between the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs and the airline before flight. On arrival, residents will be screened for COVID-19 and asked to enter their details on the COVID-19 DXB app.
The Supreme Committee also reminded travellers to respect the health and safety measures put in place by Dubai and other destinations around the world.
The new protocols apply to Dubai only – restrictions remain in place for the rest of the UAE.
