Combating coronavirus: UAE travellers can take Covid-19 test from any accredited centre
The test must have been conducted within 96 hours of the flight.
Travellers to the UAE can take a Covid-19 test from labs accredited by the government of their country of origin, the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) has announced. Previously, travellers needed to have a Covid-19 negative PCR test result from labs accredited by the UAE.

"The NCEMA and the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) announce the expansion of approval of Covid-19 tests to include all laboratories accredited by governments from around the world," the NCEMA tweeted on Tuesday.
The test must have been conducted within 96 hours of the flight, the authority said. Travellers must have a Covid-negative result to travel to the country.
The authority reminded residents that they needed an ICA approval to travel to the UAE. Dubai residents need approval from the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs.
The UAE had made a Covid-negative result mandatory for travellers from August 1. Tourists and residents must also fill a health declaration form and download contact tracing app AlHosn.
