DUBAI holidays are normally a big hit with Britons as the weather grows colder in the UK. Sadly, coronavirus has crushed the dreams of many hoping for winter sun in 2020 – and now the United Arab Emirates is clamping down on entry restrictions.
One such rule is that visitors to the UAE must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test.
The UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) explains in its travel advice online: “All travellers to the UAE must have carried out a COVID-19 Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test within 96 hours and received a negative result prior to their departure.
“You may also need to undertake a second test on arrival and to complete a period of self-isolation.
“You should check with your airline to confirm what proof of testing you need to present to the airline before travelling.”
