Dubai: The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management in Dubai, headed by His Highness Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, approved amendments to travel protocols on Wednesday, which will take effect from next Sunday (January 31) to ensure the safety of travelers.

As part of the revised protocols, UAE residents, GCC citizens, and visitors are required to do a PCR test prior to departure for Dubai irrespective of the country they are coming from. The Committee also mandated that arrivals from certain countries (based on the pandemic situation in those countries) require an additional test on arrival in Dubai.

The Committee reduced the validity period of required pre-travel PCR tests from 96 hours (4 days) to 72 hours (3 days).
