“Both forms need to be printed, completed and handed over to Dubai Health Authority staff on arrival.

“Visitors to Dubai will also have to register their details on the COVID-19 DXB App.

“Visitors must have international health insurance before travelling and with effect from 1 August, must show that they have had a negative PCR COVID-19 test a maximum of 96 hours before arrival.

“The test must have been registered and carried out at one of the UAE-approved testing centres.


“Travellers may also need to undertake a second test on arrival, and to complete a period of self-isolation.”

As for quarantine requirements, the Foreign Office explained: “Stringent entry restrictions remain in place upon arrival at all airports in the UAE which may include, but are not limited to, a Health Authority COVID-19 test on arrival, mandatory quarantine period, usually via self-isolation at a private address if suitable or a hotel, for at least 14 days, and follow up testing before you are able to complete quarantine.

“Once any quarantine period is complete you must continue to comply with all measures put in place by the UAE authorities to prevent the spread of coronavirus.”
