If you are planning to travel, there are numerous restrictions around the world, and travellers will only be accepted on these flights if they comply with the eligibility and entry criteria requirements.
If you’re planning to stop over or go with Emirates, its a good time to remember that COVID-19 PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) tests are mandatory for all inbound and transit passengers arriving in Dubai (and the UAE), including UAE citizens, residents and tourists, irrespective of the country they are coming from.
As usual, plan before you travel.
