Emirates passengers flying to Dubai from India, Pakistan and parts of the US require negative Covid-19 tests

Emirates Airline has announced that passengers travelling to Dubai from a host of destinations - including India, Pakistan, the Philippines and parts of the United States - will require a negative Covid-19 test before boarding its flights.

The Dubai carrier said the new safety guidelines will come into force from Friday.

Emirates said passengers must obtain a negative test certificate issued by a local government approved laboratory in order to board a flight with the airline.

The certificates must be issued no more than 96 hours before the passenger's departure date.

"Where specified, a certificate from a UAE government designated laboratory in the country of origin is also acceptable," the Emirates statement said.

The safety measures were confirmed just a day after Dubai began to welcome back tourists to the emirate.
