Entry into Dubai

COVID-19 entry requirements may change at short notice, and all travelers to the UAE are strongly encouraged to check the specifics before departure with their airline before they travel. Further details are available on British AirwaysEmirates and Etihad websites.

With effect from 26 February, travelers to the UAE do not need to take a COVID-19 PCR test before they travel if they are fully vaccinated or:

  • They hold a COVID-19 recovery certificate with a QR code dated within 30 days of departure
  • They are under 16 years of age for arrivals into Abu Dhabi or under 12 years of age for arrivals into Dubai
  • They have severe disabilities
Residents, tourists and visitors travelling from or through the UK and arriving in the UAE must still have a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 48 hours before departure and present the certificate at check in if:

  • They are not fully vaccinated and do not hold a COVID-19 recovery certificate
  • They are transiting in Abu Dhabi and a test is required at their final destination
Travellers arriving in Abu Dhabi will also be required to undertake a COVID-19 PCR test on arrival.

Travelers arriving in Dubai may be required to undertake a COVID-19 PCR test on arrival and will have to isolate pending the result of the COVID-19 PCR test.

If you test positive for COVID-19 on arrival, depending on your symptoms and your accommodation plans, you may be required to self-isolate in a government facility, a hospital, your hotel or privately arranged accommodation for at least 10 days. In all circumstances, the test must be a COVID-19 PCR. Other test results including antibody tests are not accepted.

Further information about COVID-19 updates is available on the UAE Coronanullvirus (COVID-19) updates webpage.

Those entering the country may also be asked to take a further COVID-19 PCR test on arrival and to complete a period of self-isolation or quarantine.

Further information about testing facilities in the UAE is available on the UAE Government Portal.

You should not use the NHS testing service to get a test in order to facilitate your travel to another country. You should arrange to take a private test.
