Dubai Makes Random RT-PCR Test Must For Air Passengers. What It Means For Indians?

In the wake of rising cases of Omicron variant, the Dubai International Airport has issued fresh guidelines for international air passengers and made random PCR test mandatory for them on arrival at the airport. However, the new guidelines will be applicable only for a few countries.

It must be noted that at present, the air passengers arriving from certain countries such as Brazil, India, Bangladesh, Russia, and Pakistan are undergoing mandatory testing at the airport.

According to a report by Khaleej Times, a Dubai Media Office spokesperson confirmed that additional testing is being done on international air passengers arriving on flights from certain countries. 

As per the report, all passengers, apart from random testing, who arrived from the United Kingdom (UK) will have to undergo testing at DXB upon arrival. The UK is not on the list of countries in which a PCR test is compulsory.

“A random PCR test is mandatory for the flights mentioned on Emirates website. However, as part of the extra precautionary measures, Dubai Airport may conduct random tests upon arrival for certain flights,” the Dubai Media Office said in a statement.
