Indian nationals departing from Abu Dhabi and Dubai airports on Thursday will have to undergo medical screening and IGM/IGG test before boarding their evacuation flights home.

A list of passengers finalised by the Indian Embassy, Abu Dhabi, and Consulate General of India, Dubai, has been sent to Air India Express for issuance of tickets.

However, only those cleared by the UAE health authorities and found to be asymptomatic will be allowed to board the plane.

"All passengers will be required to sign an undertaking to undergo compulsory quarantine at the destination of arrival and bear the cost of the same. Each passenger, at the time of boarding would be handed over a safety kit containing 2 three-layered face masks, 2 pairs of gloves and pouches/small bottles of hand sanitisers," the embassy said in a statement.
