It’s been a confusing year for everyone on planet earth, but hopefully, it’s just got a bit simpler for residents returning to Dubai as new guidelines have been released.
Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management posted a four-point checklist for residents returning to Dubai.
Residents need an entry permit via the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs – Dubai (GDRFA) website to begin the process.
They need need a valid negative test for Covid-19 for boarding the plane and arriving at the airport.
All residents then need to download the COVID-19 DXB Smart App.
The good news is that as long as you provided a negative test certificate, there’s no need to quarantine for 14-days on arrival.

The UAE re-opened its doors to tourists on July 7 and has seen a dramatic increase in the number of tourists and travellers.
And the authorities predict that the number of tourists will return to 2019 levels by November.
