Dubai will allow foreign visitors to enter come 7 July, while its
citizens and residents are already permitted to travel abroad since
Tuesday, 23 June.
International tourists entering Dubai must download the Covid-19 DXB
app and register their details on it for contact tracing if necessary,
in addition to filling a health declaration form and ensuring they have a
valid health insurance prior to boarding, according to a statement from
the Dubai government media office.
Foreign visitors also have to present certificates to show they had
recently tested negative for the coronavirus – with a maximum validity
of four days or 96 hours ahead of date of departure – or have to undergo
tests on arrival at Dubai airports.
The Dubai authorities said that it is mandatory for tourists who test
positive for Covid-19 to register their details on the Covid-19 DXB app
and isolate themselves at an institutional facility provided by the
government for 14 days at their own expense.
The United Arab Emirates suspended all passenger flights in March and
barred foreign citizens from entering the Gulf Arab state except those
holding UAE residency, Reuters reported.
In a further easing of its coronavirus lockdown, those with residency
visas are permitted to enter from Monday while some flights had resumed
services in recent weeks, the report added.
