One step closer to normality
Dubai is opening its borders to tourists on the 7th of July

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management has announced new air travel regulations for Dubai citizens, residents and visitors.

Under the directives of Mohammed bin Rashid and follow-up of Hamdan bin Mohammed, new protocols have been introduced around the air movement in and out of Dubai. Dubai is welcoming returning residents from the 21st June, and from the 23rd June citizens and residents will be permitted to travel overseas (so that summer vacay might not be completely off the cards after all…).


From the 7th July Dubai will be welcoming tourists, and all tourists are required to present a recent Covid-19 negative certificate or undergo testing at Dubai airports upon arrival. Travelers must comply with all preventative protocols and safety measures put in place by both Dubai and travelling destinations.


All Covid-19 positive cases will be isolated for 14 days, and airlines have the right to prevent passengers from boarding planes if they show symptoms of Coronavirus. International heath insurance, Covid-19 test and a completed Health Declaration Form are all mandatory for all tourists visiting Dubai to ensure that there is no further spread from foreign countries.

Some kind of new normal could finally be on the horizon!
