It’s official: Dubai open to tourists from July 7!

It’s officially been confirmed that Dubai will be open to the world again from July 7, with all travel approved for tourists, residents and citizens.

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management issued an updated list of travel rules for the country.

Tourists will be welcome in Dubai from July 7, 2020, as long as they have a recent Covid-19 negative certificate or take a test at the airport.

If you do test positive for a test on arrival, you’ll be required to isolate for 14 days.

Residents stuck abroad are meanwhile are free to return from June 23. And UAE residents are permitted to travel overseas from tomorrow as well.

New travel guidelines

UAE residents wishing to return need to get approval from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA Dubai) here. And you also need to fill in a Health Declaration Form to confirm you have no Covid-19 symptoms.

Tourists coming to Dubai need to have health insurance, have passed a Covid-19 test within the last four days and complete a Health Declaration Form. It’s also recommended to download the COVID-19 DXB app.

Further proof that Dubai is open again comes from Emirates who have added another 10 destinations to their roster. Meaning you can now fly to 40 cities and countries across the world.
