DUBAI: All travelers arriving at UAE airports will have to undergo a test for COVID-19.

The test is mandatory for citizens, residents, tourists and transit travelers, regardless of the country they are coming from, the National Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Authority said Wednesday. 

All departures via the country’s airports who are headed to the European Union, Britain and countries that require a COVID-19 test, must do the test before boarding. 

Children under 12 years of age and children with severe and moderate disabilities are exempt from the test. 

All tourists and visitors are required to present a negative COVID-19 test report, not older than 96 hours.
