The Supreme Committee for Crisis and Disaster Management in Dubai announced today, Friday, that citizens are exempt from the PCR examination before leaving the destination they are coming from, regardless of destination or period, and that the examination is satisfied upon arrival at the emirate’s ports, while the examination remains a basic requirement for residents and tourists before coming to Dubai.

The decision included the mandatory pre-examination of transit travelers coming from a group of countries or according to the requirements of their final destinations. As for departing from Dubai, the examination is mandatory if the intended destination requires a pre-examination.
