The official spokesman for the National Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Authority, Dr. Saif Al Dhaheri, announced several developments related to travel protocol in the light of coronavirus pandemic.

 

Dr Saif Al Dhahiri announced the continuation of the ban on domestic workers meeting with anyone outside the home, and reminded on the necessity of providing them with protective equipment in the event that they need to deal with people from outside the home such as receiving goods, parcels, and others.

 

Dhaheri announced the necessity of all returning travellers presenting a PCR test result from accredited laboratories, pointing out that these laboratories can be found through the website screening.purehealth.ae, which will be published in the official channels.

 

Al Dhahiri stressed the need for air carriers to ensure that those arriving for their flights have a negative test result and ensuring that the test certificate is issued by recognised centres.

Tests should have a validity period not exceeding 72 hours upon arrival in the UAE, regardless of the departure airport, as of July 24, 2020.
