Guidelines for travelling to Dubai

Earlier, the UAE closed its borders for travellers from India due to the second wave of COVID-19.

But now, the government of Dubai decided to ease travel restrictions from various countries including India.

Recently Emirates announced to resume flights connecting India to Dubai, starting from today. Dubai airport’s Terminal 1 will be reopened tomorrow after a 15-month closure.

If you are planning a trip to Dubai from India, then here are guidelines, rules and other requirements:


  • Those who want to travel to Dubai should have received two doses of the vaccine. This vaccine must be approved by the UAE government. The UAE government approved the following vaccines: Oxford-AstraZeneca, Sputnik V, Sinopharm, and Pfizer-BioNTech.
  • Also, passengers shall have a valid residence visa. Those who meet the criteria will be allowed to travel to Dubai.
  • Passengers should submit a negative RT-PCR test. It must be taken just 48 hours before departure. The report shall have QR codes.
  • The Civil Aviation Ministry made a negative RT-PCR test report with a QR code mandatory for all passengers flying out of the country.
  • As RT-PCR report is mandatory to fly out of the country, several passengers were editing their test reports to show a negative result. In this context, the Aviation Ministry made QR-coded negative PCR test certificate mandatory for all passengers flying abroad. The QR-coded test report not just assures that it is authentic, but also will confirm that passengers are safe.
  • Those who want to travel to Dubai from India should undergo a rapid PCR test four hours before departure to Dubai.
  • In addition to that, they shall undergo another RT-PCR test on their arrival in Dubai.
